Guide for newbie


Hey guys! Is there any guide that I can look to as a newbie. I just builded a new gaming pc and then while looking videos and forums, I saw things like your gpu fan might not be working, how to overclock. So I guess I would like to know how to take care of my computer components, how to get the best possible performance for my pc, which components I should upgrade first when I will upgrade my pc, etc...


Every answer is welcomed, it will probably help me a lot.

A single guide won't be enough, ongoing research and learning is required for a very good idea on these things. That's usually the reason it's a good idea to save money and spend less on your first PC, rather than making expensive mistakes.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B


Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.


Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)


How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad
