You don't "just get some PC parts" and walk away. You have to prove that you can provide them more value via some means than the products they are sending and that you're trustworthy. You don't just email a supplier and say "I want free stuff and I promise I'll do a video on it" and call it a day. You have to have a solid following on whatever social media or video platform you're on (usually 10K+ followers) and have a history of reviews you can showcase them. They need to know that sending you a few thousand dollars worth of stuff will net them much more than that in sales or potential sales.

You don't go to sponsors. Sponsors come to you.

Then you have until your birthday to become a very famous reviewer or casemodder, or save up the money.

Make quality content, if you have a strong audience, sponsors will come to you.
If you get less than 50 000 views per videos, forget it. No one will give you free computer parts for that little views.

By making it worth it to manufacturers to give you stuff for free.

^Basically this

 

While I don't agree with the people above just flat out saying you can't get anything, you do have to make an effort towards manufacturers to show that you would make it worth to them.

Typically you do this by making a good post on a forum (or multiple) with a shoutout to your sponsors, if the manufacturer believes you will garner them enough attention; you may get a component out of it. But keep in mind they likely get a ton of "pls free vidya card" emails a day and they might just throw it in the bin right away. Hitting up smaller manufacturers might work better for example.

Start uploading relevant and relatable content to social media that generates enough interest so that it finds it's way to a supplier, manufacturer, or otherwise sponsor who sees the value in your content and therefore wishes to sponsor you. It's that easy.

I thought people have to send expensive parts back after the review. Maybe not big names like Linus but the smaller ones.

have lots of subscribers interested in tech that a tech company wants to advertise to. There's no simple formula, if there were, I'd have a 32 gb ram set right now

Exactly. Just make sure the 'relatable' bit is about tech, companies like Intel and Corsair have no interest in sponsoring someone who just throws hot garbage onto YouTube with stuff like "OMG I GOT ON THE BUS TODAY SO RELATABLE AM I RIGHT XD", I can name plenty of people with millions of subs who do this but I've never seen them get sponsored by any tech company.  Make content that relates to a PC enthusiast, not just random people. Tech companies want to sponsor tech content.

It really depends, sometimes they gotta return, other times they gotta keep, and it ain't about size of the channel... I recall RandomGaminginHD before being as popular got a free MSi GTX 1070 Aero to review and they allowed him to keep it for instance.

Not exactly answering the question, but this blog post from Casey Neistat is a good response overall to questions like this. (i.e., "how can I get companies to give me free stuff?")

 

The tl;dr version is: Prove you can create good content first.

 

As an anecdote, I had a gig as a writer for online articles for a PC magazine. One of the ideas I pitched required some hardware in question because I needed it for a visual aid. They sent me a PSU that I eventually used in my last build. However, this was like my 5th or 6th article in and by that point, I had written something good enough to be given a shout out on their main publication.

I dunno, the Aero series is their bottom tier.

True but a 1070 is a 1070.
