It's the Verge, though. Expecting it to be useful is way too optimistic. Expecting it to give us cancer is realistic.

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Spoiler

Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + 2x ML120

MSI B350 Tomahawk Arctic

2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 MHz CL15 (Micron B-die) @2933 MHz

Sapphire Radeon R9 280 Dual-X @1120 MHz / 1450 MHz

120GB 850 Evo

120GB Kingston SSD

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710 with Kailh Box Jade

Logitech G502

HyperX Cloud

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)

Spoiler

Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

128GB Samsung MZ7LF128HCHP

Corsair M65 Pro RGB (worst mouse I've ever had)

Sennheiser CX 5.00G

And here would be where I would put a picture of my cat. But apparently, images are not allowed here. So take this instead (*ΦωΦ*)

I feel like you'd be screaming internally over this, "850ws for headroom so I can upgrade to an RTX"

I was expecting worse.. this isn't really bad enough to be funny. 

 

If you're here already and want a laugh watch GN video on thermal paste instead

I cringed so bad early on when he brought out all those tools like the thermal paste applicator (lol) and the swiss army knife. But the anti-static bracelet... How cute!

*looks at "needed tools"*

 

*Laughs*

 

Didn't know you could get cordless anti static risk bracelets. 

 

A swiss army knife is good though. Helps for unboxing. A multi tool without a knife though wouldnt make sense though. The Philips head would be a pain to use over a regular screw driver.

WTF is that????

 

  • Mentions anti static wrist straps are important, puts on a rubber band.
  • Says to be careful with screwing in the motherboard "because you could crack the motherboard"
  • The motherboard I/O shield is important for aligning the motherboard with the standoffs

And I'm only 3 minutes in ... And I saw the part pointed out by @Aprime at 5 minutes where he says the PSU can shortcut on the case.

 

Are they trolling?!?!?!?!?!???!? Seriously W. T. F. :o

He also put like a bunch of circles worth of MX-4 on after stating the pre-applied paste on the AIO wasn't enough.  So, he just wasted a shit ton of paste too.

Remember, the bottom of "the brick" can't touch the case but it can touch the back without shorting things out :P

Unless you're using power tools, that would be had to do, especially by hand.

Still hard to do with some power tools. Particularly electric screwdrivers, 4v range screw guns, and drills with the clutch set really low.


Come Bloody Angel

Break off your chains

And look what I've found in the dirt.

 

Pale battered body

Seems she was struggling

Something is wrong with this world.

 

Fierce Bloody Angel

The blood is on your hands

Why did you come to this world?

 

Everybody turns to dust.

 

Everybody turns to dust.

 

The blood is on your hands.

 

The blood is on your hands!

 

Pyo.

I got it almost to 7 minutes and I just can't ... There are so many mistakes, wrong and nonsensical statements that I have to stop. It just doesn't make sense, the video as a whole doesn't make sense : how could they have gone through all this without asking an "expert" or at the very least, proof check the script? And none of that was flagged during editing or reviewing before it went live???

 

It's not like it's anything complex! This just hurts their brand as a whole, how am I supposed to trust anything they post about stuff I'm not familiar with? Man, it's too early in the day and in my weekend for this, I'm gonna need another coffee before I do anything else...
