  1. Today
  2. The only things that can really cause problems with newcomers to pc building are inserting the CPU the wrong way (although the processor and the motherboard have little triangles to tell you what side it fits) and the thing that still trips me up on the odd occasion of getting all the front panel connectors the right way (ie the power and reset switch and the LEDs since the little plugs are polarity sensitive so if you put them on wrong your lights won't work) Also make sure that you seat the ram in the sockets properly, I've gotten a few computers that weren't working because the ram wasn't in the slot properly so they just gave em away
  3. I'm referring to compatibility, you don't just buy something and try to build and it turns out your parts aren't able to be used together.

    Nah it'd be better if I learn it all myself so I don't need to rely on other things later on. Which I have and I understand most of it now. It'll definitely fit since my motherboard takes m.2 and type 2280 (which is the SSD I have).
  5. You can use PC part picker to check for compatibility or if you are buying from counter you can ask them if the parts are compatible they usually know as it is their job to know

    Yes 2, it goes into the DIMM slots next to the cpu

    So 2 DDR4 Ram Sticks?

    That motherboard can hold 2 DDR4 sticks.

    Does Ram go in PCIE slots or am I going to have to find a new motherboard?
  12. Im by no means an amd person (too many bad experiences with pga style chips) but I don't think many amd CPUs except for the higher up models have heatsink fan combos packaged with them, however I have seen amds new rgb fan and it looks pretty cool.

    That looks good, people don’t realise the difference good thermal paste can make! Do you want RGB fans? If so they should be good, but if you don’t you can find much cheaper solutions, or even the case’s stock fans.
  14. I've seen a lot of pc builders use Arctic Silver 5 on YouTube and reviews on stores swear by it, I've bought some for a retro pentium iii build I'm in the process of making (I know it's overkill for the applications but I'll end up using it for other things) It's fairly expensive at 11 aud but I think it's worth the extra couple of dollars if it's sworn by so many people.

    https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/FANCLM0006/Cooler-Master-MasterGel-Pro-15g-Thermal-Grease-Ult this should be good. And also, if there are any other fans you see that are under 40 dollars and are better than this: https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/FANCLM1330/Cooler-Master-MasterFan-Pro-PWM-RGB-Cooling-Fan-12 Please let me know. Thanks.

    Get thermal paste, very few cpu coolers come with it pre installed or with the thermal paste included

    https://www.game-debate.com/hardware/index.php?gid=3918&graphics=Radeon RX 580 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB These are the FPS on games with this GPU on Ultra settings 1080p. That's really good considering the price.

  19. Honestly, I don't blame Rahj if he's just gotten tired of working on launching it up. When I was talking to Rahj he was always working on the server for several hours a day.
  20. A "read all" button on top of the notification menu would be nice if you're a chad being replied every second.
