    You did amazing - None of the "mistakes" you made are anything seasoned builders wouldn't do by accident on occasion. (Though I'd definitely get that fan wire that clipped into the top fan on the first power on sorted asap)
    One thing you could do is take the glass side panel down to a printer, and have them apply some decorative vinyl art on it. You can get material that looks like it's been etched into the glass that looks gorgeous when lit up. :)

You help kids to know it okay to not have it "all-together" before you try and that mistakes are okay . Side note you also did very well building your PC (lesson for son: it can still work out when you try). Thank you for being an example to the kids around the world.

    Awesome build! I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this, but the 4090 12 pin cable has been somewhat infamous the past year for being a potential fire hazard (the worst I've seen is some melted plastic). It should be fine as long as you make sure it's fully plugged in without being twisted too much to either side (as long as you can't see any of the pins on the cable, you'll be fine).
    Overall you're probably unlikely to be affected but it might be worth watching a video or 2 just to make sure!

      @Kirmeins 2 개월 전 +7

      Thank you for pointing that out! My boss got a new 4090 just last week for AI training. None of us had a lot of experience building PCs (read: almost none). It's working fine, but I'm definitly going to check that cable again! :)

    Awesome job at building your new PC. As someone who only builds one every few years, the biggest thing I always forget and want to let you know is to make sure you turn on the XMP profile in your BIOS to get the most out of your RAM. On most boards its off by default and throttles the RAM speeds.

    • @xanpagebrown
      @xanpagebrown 2 개월 전 +5

      I second this! Especially important as she's using DDR5 ram which is likely capable of running at 6000MHz looking at the packaging but by default would likely only be running at maybe 3000MHz? (I'm not too familiar with the non-xmp speed of DDR5 RAM as I haven't got any experience with it)

    Excellent! Keeping the GPU in its silver bag was a great idea, that protects it from static. In the future, if you're worried about static, there are little wristbands you can buy that either plug into the wall, or clip to the case to add some security. Love PC part picker. Well done!

    You did a great job. The fact you started on the motherboard box shows you did great research 🙂 Also static isn't too dangerous now. High end conponents especially have protections in place. You would've need ALOT of static and ALOT of bad luck for something to happens.

      Don't encourage people to ignore static. There's no guarantee that a CPU could survive a shock of 10kV+. And I have never seen a CPU advertised as being immune to electric shock. Putting a protection circuit is a waste of die space. Prove me wrong... I haven't upgraded my pc significantly in 5 years.

    PC building is a bit more complicated than LEGO, and yet even simpler.
    Having the right parts makes it fairly obvious what goes where since most connectors and sockets are coded to fit only the right place.
    Still plenty of room for mistakes. Great job getting it right first time (except for the cable adjustments) - the apple has not fallen far from the tree trunk.

    Congratulations on your new PC! You did absolutely amazing! Looks so good. ^_^
    I just want to say: Make sure the cable to the GPU isn't bending or pulling too much in the connection.
    The 4000 series has a tendency to burn out the cable input, if the bend on the cable is too big, or the cable isn't seated all the way in.
    I know this is somewhat backseating, and I apologies for that :)

    Firstly, I want to say that I've built PCs for over 10 years and, for a first-timer, you did great. You avoided some things that first-timers do (most people would try to wire everything up after installing the CPU cooler and/or GPU, which just makes things a bit more of a pain). Overall, I'm impressed.
    Now, I don't tend to comment or even log in to KRclip, but I've watched you for years (admittedly logged out of KRclip) and wanted to give one suggestion: To check that the Graphics Card power cable is fully plugged into the 4090, and that you don't put much strain on the plug with your cable routing. Even if it looks plugged in, make sure the securing tab is fully locked. You may have done that off camera, but I wanted to comment in case you haven't since it can cause some fairly expensive issues down the road (not to alarm or scare you, like I said you did a good job on everything shown).

      @GSBarlev 2 개월 전 +1

      Lukewarm take: a fresh install (with your old OS and software settings accessible on a backup drive) gives you a great chance to _kon mari_ your software setup.
      Given how fast it is to download and install software these days, you end up with a much cleaner system just installing what you need, right before you need it, rather than carrying around random software you installed six years ago that you haven't used since.
      Also: I'm a firm believer that your documents (and videos, music, etc.) should *never* be on the same partition as your OS (and anything important should be backed up using 3-2-1).

Congratulations on your first build, I'm no expert, but from all the PC building vidoes I've watched I'd say you did a very good job! You almost made it look easy!

    It's so nice to see that you clearly did research and look up how to build a PC / remembered from the build with your dad. I have seen so messy stuff, and this was one of the cleanest "first pc builds" ever.

    Well Done! To be able to get a machine from packaging to POST is quite an accomplishment. Enjoy your new system and thanks for the great content! :)

    From the little experience I personally ahve, I have to say the REAL hardest part is managing and routing all the cables so they are nice and tidy :) Congrats on the new build! I plan on building a new PC myself in the near future with pretty much the same specs tho on the AMD platform. Don't be feeling like you're getting more than enough with that cpu though, as MC LOVES fast cpus, and it will do WONDERS for you in MC if you wanna puch it to the limits, and works pretty much flawlessly for any other case. Fortunately for us, the consumers, CPUs are VERY competitive right now :)

    Congrats on your first PC! Jealous that you got the parts for free. I built my first one using KRclip videos so this is fitting. You could have narrated the steps and turned this into a how-to video.

    I've killed a motherboard once because I didn't use motherboard standoffs and it shorted out. I didn't see you use them (you might have, though). Just thought I would recommend them just in case. They give you a little more room between the motherboard and the case.

    As someone who’s built probably 100 pcs for friends myself and work you did a great job. Even looks like you got the ram in the right slots.

    For a first time build you did an excellent job, especially with cable management, you can use your own velcro straps to tidy it up.

    My experience (a LOT of it) is that you can just touch the case a lot, especially after the power supply has been mounted, to discharge static. But if you are nervous in the future you can buy an anti-static wrist strap.

    I myself built a pc about a year ago and it really is a great experience!! However, don't expect completely smooth sailing forever lol, my pc has random unexpected issues that crop up every now and then, but building a pc is definitely superior to buying a prebuilt!
    Also, you might want to keep that little cheap plastic casing for the cpu, because it's crucial for warranties (mobo warranties)

    congrats on the new build, 1 point to note is that the way you installed your radiator fans (on the liquid cooler) makes it so it draws air in from the top, while not wrong, generally most people opt to flip them around (with the logo of the fan facing the radiator) so it blows out of the top of your case, again its not wrong the way you mounted them, but for overall thermals in your case you might want to go in and flip them.
    also a step a lot of new pc builders miss is once your build is done, go into the bios and enable XMP to make sure your RAM runs at its advertised speed

    • @MDKdave
      @MDKdave 2 개월 전

      Air is usually drawn from the logo side (open face) to the grille side though. The way Gem has installed them they're pulling air from inside the case and blowing through the radiator and out.

    I have to agree with Splinta, I actually build custom intergrated PC desks and liquid cooling for 15 years, and you have done a fantastic job for your first PC Gem!

    What i love most about your set up is the wood on your desk...is that sad 😂
    The ASMR on those peely parts 😍
    Loved this video and how brave you are to put this out there given how some people can be in comments!
    Like minecraft youve made something look so easy and straightforward when its really not!

    Side note, may wanna find a way to not have your PC on the floor.

    Nice work on the PC you did a great job for a first time,I caught this video when hunting for decked out vids and love a PC build particularly when its not my money. Having worked in IT for 20 years and built every PC ive owned I just wanted to give a few friendly suggestions I havent seen mentioned for your future endevors.
    First is around mounting the CPU and RAM, though componants are generally alot more tolerant than they use to be. I wouldnt do it on top of the motherboard box as you probably found memory particularly can take quite a bit of force to push in. So ensuring the board is on a firm surface will ensure the board has no room to flex protentally causing issues. I generally mount them inside the motherboard box on a table.
    Second is around the thermal paste technically what I believe you did (create a pea then mount the heatsink couldnt quite see if you spread it) isnt wrong and it shouldnt cause you an issue, but my personal preferance has always been to ensure there is an even spread of the paste across the surface of the cpu that comes into contact with the heatsink using an old bank card or the like. This is very open to debate so I wouldnt go changing what you have done as it should be fine but remember the paste is there to help ensure the best contact between the cpu and heatsink. So areas that might not benefit from it or maybe have airpockets in it have protental to cause heating issues.
    Any congrats and well done hope you enjoy the new PC

    Super jealous. I'd love the opportunity to own a PC this high end. There's nothing wrong with taking advantage of your job to acquire better tools that will help you do that job. I say good for you for working your way into a position where this is possible for you. Great job!

  • @jasonaviles8356

    Excellent build! I'm not sure if you already own one, but I would look into an external battery surge protector to help protect your investment.
    Side note... Awesome looking table.

    Nice work Gem. Not much you could have done otherwise. Cable management is always a pain, if you don't do custom cable runs, and that's outside most people's abilities. May it serve you well for a long time!

  • @MlemDotaPersonal
    @MlemDotaPersonal 2 개월 전

    Good job Gem! I do have one suggestion, if you're brave enough; modern intel processors tend to not make the best contact with the CPU cooler, it's a known issue with them. For a few dollars, you can get an Intel LGA 1700 contact frame, that you attach to the motherboard to help the CPU cooler make better contact with the CPU and keep the temperatures lower. I would highly recommend it to increase your i9 13900k's longevity :)

    IMPORTANT: you didn't push one side of the first memory stick in far enough. No one else in the comments seems to have noticed. This could lead to bad, hard to diagnose issues in the future. Otherwise great job! I went like YES when you removed your carpet at the start :D It may not be strictly necessary, but could improve the longevity of your components wgich matters with a pc this nice :)

    Amazing new computer Gemini! Most of the time with the wire management you run into the wires being a little on the short side. Which makes it hard to make them look good. :(
    A few recommendations, Its good to have something metal next to you that plugs in if you dont have a anti static strap. You can use your old computer for this. When building, Occasionally touch the metal case. This will discharge any static your body builds up, Making it safe to not damage sensitive components.
    I would also get your computer off of the floor, Specially because you dont have a carpet. The computer will pull up a TON of dust and dirt off of the floor and
    put it into the case. If you absolutely do have to leave it on the floor, Try to find something to lift it up atleast a foot or so.
    Congratulations on your new PC!

    Amazing build Gem, one tip for the future is that you want to do a test of all the parts outside the case. Just incase one of the parts is bad (yes even it is sent from the manufacturer directly as a sponsoring/gift it can still be bad.
