It's okay, you can vent to us. What annoys you the most about PC building? From petty complaints to extreme issues.

I haven't dealt with most of these, I've been building since I was 8 over 24 years, modern computers as so streamlined it's really hard screw things up. Protip for you younglings, get 10 pin USB header connectors and swap it for your case's front panel connectors and just use a black fine point sharpie to make a single corner so you never have to worry about figuring out which one is the power switch ever again. I've been doing that for 15 years.

Number 1 should have been the motherboard standoffs getting stuck to the screw then you have to use pliers and pray to Gaben that you don't scratch the mobo.

Id like to render #10 moot. Yes you may not have money for games but there are some real good free games out there.

The worst thing that happened to me is that I forgot to buy a power adapter for my new shiny 2g 1050 and no store close to where I live had the one I needed so I needed to wait for more than 3 days to finaly use my new gpu
Yesterday i've opened up my PC to install another GTX260, and because my case is a newer one, i had to put the PSU UNDER the motherboard, with the fan facing up, taking air from the inside. And back to the SLI configuration i've planned - I put the GPU in the second PCI-e slot on my ASUS P5N-E SLI, and when i put the screw on my ''magnetic'' screwdriver guess what - IT DETACHED AND FELL DEEP INSIDE THE FUCKING PSU!!! I had to remove bothe GPUs, the PSU, open it up and rattle it for almost one minute to get the screw out. Then guess what, IT HAPPENED AGAIN!!! After 10 more minutes of struggling i DID MANAGED to install both GPUs, then after turning it on, IT SHOWED AS A SINGLE GRAPHICS CARD AND NO SLI CONFIGURATION WAS MADE, THEN I REMEMBERED THAT MY FREAKIN' ASUS P5N-E SLI HAS A FREAKIN' SLI SELECTOR, WHICH LOOKS LIKE A LAPTOP DDR2 RAM MODULE, AND GUESS WHAT - IT'S LOCATED BETWEEN THE 2 PCI-E SLOTS, WHICH MEANT I HAD TO OPEN THE GODDAMN PC, REMOVE BOTH GPUS AND SET IT TO DUAL GRAPHICS CARD MODE. And, after i did this, without more screws falling in the PSU, and rebuilding the PC, it didn't start up at all, even after removing the second graphics card and resetting the SLI selector. This is why i'm watching this on the same PC, but with an ASUS P5Q SE2 motherboard and with only one GTX260, because the old one obviously died. After one more hour of reinstalling Windows and all the drivers and software, i managed to have a normal PC once again.

Frying one component while upgrading another. I fried my motherboard when I went to upgrade the video card. Worse, I had spent all my money on the video card and couldn't afford to buy a new motherboard till next payday. I'm not sure if it was a static discharge or if I pressed too hard when putting in the new card. Today I do all work on a static discharge mat, am vary careful with plugging in components and keep en emergency fund to cover unexpected expenses like that.

i hate when people building their first pc's when they buy FX9590 220w with cooler that rated 90w max bent some pins in the process and couple all that with gtx 1050 ti and then ask me to fix that shit because shit won't work and cry later when they have low fps because it's shitty overpriced 1050 ti

The only problem I ever had was when I ordered some ram from newegg and I waited 3 weeks finally my ram shows up and its not even in the envelope so the mail man takes it back and I contact newegg and I still have to wait 2 more weeks
EYVoom (3 days ago)
The amount of force needed to properly install the RAM always makes me a bit nervous. More than once I've thought I've had the RAM in place, just to find out it wasn't fully pushed in.

Hi, I'm currently assembling my PC right now and I had to change the case because of the watercooling. With my "old" case, I had the choice between having watercooling and having RAM. And parts are more expensive in France that in USA.

i'd have to agree with the screw issue..i've had other problems before that were in the video but the screw issue is my worst. i'm extra careful now when it comes to screws but that's just nerve wrecking trying not to drop a screw because some of them are extra small

Mine was I bought the regular processor and went with the standard fan that came with it. After I found I wanted more cooling on that processor so I got a aftermarket heat sink with fan. If I knew that I was going to do this I should have got an over clocked chip. Still works very well but that part I should have planed better.
