    Ha how did I miss that, yes any Apevia unit absolutely has to go, I learned that the hard way. A Mr. JonnyGuru affirmed this fact when I asked him if there was ever a good Apevia unit, him basically saying no.

    Water Cooling 101
    I have been reading a lot of posting in this sub-forum and am seeing a lot of the same questions. So I figured this forum need some basic guide to water cooling. My basic idea is to take a ton of information on the internet and condense it down to as short and simple explanation of Water cooling. This should be a good starting place for most people. You will need to much more research than just this to be a successful water cooler.

    I have spoken to a Mod and this should be made into a sticky soon.

    My goal with this guide is to be of a FAQ than more of a building guide. Try and explain everything that has to do with what goes into a custom water cooling loop. I am trying to make a guide that will work well with Linus's water cooling videos on the NCIXcom Youtube channel. Trying hard not to cover what he has but make sure nothing is missed.

    So welcome to my Basic Noobies guide to water cooling. Please feel free to comment or post with your ideas of what I could add or change.

    So why do we water cool? Why would you want to stick a tank of water in a box of very expensive electronics?
    This is a question that gets asked a lot on the forum and I thought one of our members summed it up best;

    From our own MdX MaxX;
    “It's not just about temperatures, but about noise. With water cooling, you can run fans at much lower speeds and lower noise levels than you can with air cooling and achieve the same temperatures. Especially for GPUs, I mean GPU fans get loud. Plus you have the benefit of cooling everything you want in the same loop.

    And "good enough" isn't what enthusiasts strive for. Sure, multi-hundred dollar loops aren't necessary. An NH-D14 or Silver Arrow is "good enough." But being a PC enthusiast is much more than having a "good enough" rig. Most people here would have much lower-specced PCs if they only wanted what was "good enough" for them.

    Also, it's fun. Building is fun. Taking on [such] an intensive project is a thrilling challenge for a lot of people. You get to really absorb the experience rather than putting together a system in 2-3 hours and then you're done.

    And lastly, water cooling loops are freaking gorgeous. I mean look at them.

    I would just add that for most of us that use water cooling is more than getting the best performance out of your rig. For most of us it is a hobby. Once you get started it is hard to stop. You always want to try something new or add something to you loop, or even multiple loops.

    imma pick apart things cuz im bored
     
    a Graphics card (i am assuming you were reffering to this) usually allows for it to render more complex graphics that end up looking better. its not inherently better looking. 
    no mention of HBM which is a type of Ram. 
     
     
    and before anyone asks, yes im nitpicking
    no, it allows them to cooperate and "act" as a single unit and share data. You should maybe also mention infinity fabric across GPUs and Nvlink
     
    yes and no. depends if you mean the physical extra bridge attached. the Crossfire works through the PCIe slot though iirc there were versions with physical bridges. 
    you should mention that this is strictly in relation to games. regular 4K content doestn need a lot of Vram and in games it varies greatly between titles
     
     
     
    there were some other things like what an SSD actually is and if you had the option you could talk about caching in SSDs and HDDs that most HDDs have and some SSDs have.

    @bigmouthbob1 Stewie's got a lot of good points here.  If your audience is fellow students, then discussing RAM types probably going to be meaningless to most, if not all.  This can hurt you if the speech is peer reviewed.  Introducing and defining components is probably all the depth you want to give; manufactures, different speeds, etc. is probably way too deep.  @2SidedPolygon's version is better focused, but is still aimed more at people interested in the topic; your audience is probably not interested at all.
     
    Something else to consider is many people these days do not consider the PC relevant anymore.  You need to address this straight away or your audience will simply switch off.  This is due to the perception that "PC" is bunch of boxes that require a desk and Windows; they're for Fortnight and business, not "normal" people.  It might be helpful to get attention by starting your speech with a quick reminder that smartphones and tablets are also "personal computers" and they also have CPUs, GPUs (in a way), RAM, ROM, etc.

    AMD vs Intel is a better comparison.
     
    And if you are comparing product names it would be Core vs Ryzen
     
    Because its Intel Core i5 and AMD uses the Product Name: Ryzen 5 
     
    Hence Intel core and AMD Ryzen being the better way to go about ir.

    Android is open OS. You can customize is to your liking with different icons, wallpapers, themes etc etc.  I can strap a mouse to my Note 9 and use it as a PC mouse.
