this pc building guide that verge made is unbarable

why that would give you a horrible like to dislike ratio.

 

This is sad I've seen 5 year olds build better PCs, but that may be because they actual had help from someone who knew what they were doing.  

Wanted to show the original to someone out of the loop.

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...

 

 

EDIT ; HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

It's like them telling you how to "fill up your car with oil" then saying "just throw the cap, you don't need it", then not putting oil in the water, that would be bad, but putting oil in the petrol tank. xD

 

 

This has got to be a troll... or totally disconnected with reality. Either way, I feel sorry for the person. I also envy them. I sure wish I had the naivety to get both paid to do absolute the worse work all day long AND turn around with both me and my boss thinking it's fantastic.

The response by Stefan alongside most of The Verge's editorial team really hits the nail on the head on why I don't read or follow portals like Vox Media. 

 

I can't understand why there was a need to deflect to racism/misogyny/sexism on a topic where none of those things are involved. Sure, maybe you can do that on whatever controversy President Trump is going to stir but not when it comes to computer hardware. 

 

Plain and simple, the guy made numerous errors when building that PC (things that someone who has been building PCs for a while as he claimed should have known) and many have called out on it. Sure, maybe there were some asshats who made fun of his skin color but I guarantee you that 99% of the response was pointing out what he did wrong. 

 

His response afterwards related to toxicity in gaming (even though it was more related to PC hardware) along with the dismissal of legitimate criticism because "I have a better computer than most of you and it still fucking works" just reeks of absolute stubbornness. 

 

Dude, you built a computer wrong. Many of us are pointing that out so that you're aware and then able to fix and potentially re-upload. Nothing about it was racist or misogynistic in any way, shape or form. Just man the fuck up and grow some thicker skin because right now, many of the folks at The Verge and most of Vox Media seem to have skin thinner than Apple's ambition of thinness. 

 

And it doesn't matter that "it still fucking works". That's just bad practice for building PCs. Yeah it works but it doesn't work nearly as well as it should. 

 

Yep, once you realize they were founded as propaganda outlets, it makes more sense

Listen to the founders give a presentation saying so to microsoft an eternity ago

Where did he say that? I don't see nowhere on Twitter ( skimming ) that he was not allowed to reshoot the video. He blocked a lot of people on Twitter that try to correct his mistakes in the video. I rather buy an Alienware computer or HP computer than watch Stefstefan Etienne build a computer. He shouldn't be on the tech field if he doesn't know what zip tie and tweezers look like. 

 

Yea especially since he tried to claim it wasn't his first pc, there was no excuse, 1 hours top of youtube video from linus/pauls/jayz on this exact topic and he wouldn't have made half the mistakes he made, and he should have done this research during his earlier builds meaning he couldn't complain about time pressure.  These just aren't mistakes he should have had to fix if he had done even the the minimum due diligence..  Compound this with his editor and boss also being this dumb, and its just a disturbing look into the dysfunction in that organization.  I mean seriously, even the sponsorship integration was botched, it wasn't related in any way and I misremembered which bank it was in my earlier comment because why would I remember.

yo verge, just stick to macbooks for future videos, some people are just that incompatible with technology and there's nothing you can do to change that

But he got an 8700k. And it's not like you can just walk into any Best Buy and pick one of those up. xD

But you can't, at least not ones with "INTEL CONFIDENTIAL" written on them xD

The whole video is a mockery and an insult to anyone who knows anything about building PCs.

To be fair, with $2000 you can have one or the other. I personally wouldn't be trying to fit custom LC in a $2000 PC - the threshold of performance upgrade possibility isn't met yet so before I spend $500-700 on custom LC components I'd rather get more powerful system in the first place.

 

Ugh, I have watched one Lyle video and now YT is pushing me about ten other unknown tech channels with 10k subs or so doing exactly the same thing.

 I have been building gaming PC's for over 15yrs, none of which have failed, so I know a little bit about how it's done.

 

Having said that I don't see anything wrong with this build guide. Sure the terminology for certain parts isn't accurate, like the I/O shield being called a "brace", but none of what he has described or how to do it is going to kill your PC.

HAHAHAHA well I feel sorry for your buildings if you say that , just looking at that psu if you saying that is not going to kill that pc well .... over 15 years you wont see a psu fault? , psu's fault because of power spikes on the electric.net and heat, and guess what happens when u put a fan just in the opposite zone that you should had mounted?. That is a common mistake if you have 1 year maybe 2 mounting pc's , but  with 15 years? , you just played urself dude,  radiator + bad screws = kill , psu with blocked fan(if its a tier 4 or lower i bet that would be 100% kill on 2-3 years)

I use to help people and build friends pc's and help random people to build his pc, but allways I have the same fear that I can brick anyones investment , this is just the opposite , I've studied an IT career , I work on IT repairing computers, and never that fear goes off completely, saying those things or doing that video offend me and another IT that has some respect for someones else's hard earned money.

 

Sometimes we can go troll (Sometimes not all mobo screws needs to go in :P , sometimes a ziptie can do the work of a screw.....) but thats not the norm, and making a how to video should be almost perfect on the basis (there are people that likes more to mount his pc on the mobo cardboard , a la Linus, I prefer to mount first on the case... , that is not this video) 


and I'm a mess with organization but there's a need of some cable management, its not for aesthetic,  people can say  that cables doesnt build dust , but loose cables + fans = cable hitting the fan , and thats another potential risk of damagin new components.

TDLR : That is how I build a 10$ computer not how to build a 2000$ one. (And I never will put a psu on the wrong side and let that on the public video omg....., if its a tier 1-3 it can be ok but if its a tier 4-7 like the majority of  people that see a how to video, that is going to brick that psu 100%)

I found this forum because of this topic. I never saw the original video. I joined the forum to see what people are saying. It is all quite funny but I think the most hilarious part was where they guy thinks people are planning on playing BF5. Makes me wonder what their real audience is. I understand the Verge is part of Vox who themselves publishe a lot of hyper-partisan trash.

yes this is what caught my attention. The Verge is practically Vox who publishes a lot of racially-themed clickbait. If I'm going to be conspiracy theoretical I would say they intentionally did this bad so can bank on more click-baity trash. Clicks are their gold.

WinRAR has some advantages over 7Zip.  For example, if I want to extract multiple archives at once, but put them each under their own newly created directory; I can't do that with 7Zip, but I can with WinRAR.  It handles batch processing much better.

Wait, not sure I understand this but doesn't 'Extract to "*\"' do exactly that?

I do that using the explorer plugin and extract to folder with name of archive option, can spawn off as many as I want.
