  1. great video as usual. Just like to say that on some older motherboards when installing the cpu there is a locking screw instead on an arm. Be sure to turn this into the locked position otherwise the pc won’t even boot.

    Your videos are very entertaining and fun! Does the software program to monitor hardware temperature require any sensors? How does it work? Thanks.

  3. you keep things simple and explain them well. been watching these videos for 10 hrs now.(with breaks of course) good job.

  4. It’s interesting to note that you have to make sure you pick out the right type of processor for the kind of computer system you are setting up, such as a workstation or server.

    ((((That liquid cooling part was a bit scary…:)

  5. I have a question:
    In earlier videos we were told that any motors, or magnets, would damage the computer. However, the fans are placed directly on top of the CPU’s, probably the most crucial part of the computer.
    How do these fans work?
