How to Build a PC: The Ultimate Guide from Tek Syndicate

This is an in-depth guide on how to build a PC. If you are new to building, this is the video you want to watch.

Here's our concise "How to Build a PC" guide.  Share it with your friends who are new to building! The real goal here is to attract some new builders and new gamers (maybe some console gamers). Let us know what you think. 

One more thing... Someone on YT noticed that we did not mention static. So, be sure to ground yourself by touching something metal or by wearing an anti-static wrist thingie.

This video is favorited and will be shared. Maybe I can persuade a few friends of mine to join the PC Revolution.

Probably the best video guide I've seen. You pretty much covered almost every variable when building a pc. Good job, was well worth the wait.

Good video. It makes perfect sense and is very concise. This video (and maybe the motherboard manual) should be enough for anyone to build their first pc with no problems

I have probably built 100 computers in my lifetime but I watched the video anyway. That is how awesome you are Logan!

Same situation here, I've built so many computers, and still I had to watch :D

To those who have made the jump from console to PC, I have one thing to say. Welcome to the LAN party guys. FRAG OUT! XD

I'll be honest, that was too fast. Remember, I am terrified of installing a new computer, you kept talking like it was easy peasy, even when talking about touching the bottom of the cpu thingy... You should think of us as noobs trying to defuse a bomb, because a simple mistake can screw up things big time.

Also a further away shot would be better, considering I don't know if motherboards look different, I might not know where you are zooming into.

Sorry, but this was not outstanding-amazing-10/10-fantastic, it was definitely better than most though.

I understand your fear, thhough at the same time, it's why it's a video.. you can watch it over and over.

and you can always ask questions.   Questions are good.

Thanks a million! You guys are awesome

Huge step he left out. Remember to touch something bare metal to ground yourself. Keeping your wrist on the case at all times while building the computer will suffice if you dont have a static band laying around.

There is a simple and really cheap way to take care of grounding out your body. Take a long peice of wire ( any wire will do. I use speaker wire.) Take the mounting screw out of your outlet cover and attach the wire. ( make sure to strip the insulation off first.) On the other end strip the insulation back enough so that there is enough to fit around your wrist. put it around your wrist. And just twist it so it is loose enough to not cut your circulation off. YOU ARE PERMANENTLY GROUNDED NOW. NO WORRIES.

Awesome guide but you missed the sled HDD mounts I know going into the case they are the same as the side rails but getting those bastards on the HDD itself can be a pain in the ass.

Thing I love about TS vids, Logan makes you feel like you have to do it, then you realize, it's because he is a hatchet wielding, mountain conquering viking.

posted 3 years 8 months ago

He should definitely appear with a hatchet and a viking helm sometime

Your table of contents idea... I was going to email you that suggestion but I figured it was too late and you were probably too far into making the video to implement that so I was like WTF when I saw you do that in the video xD I got the idea for it from that interactive Crysis 3 trailer a little bit ago. One thing, you should add a annotation throughout the entire video to take you back to the table of contents.

How about installing Gentoo.

Nice, just build a rig yesterday. Only thing I do differently is install the CPU before I install the motherboard in the case.

Hey Logan,

You should totally do a video going through every parts of a bios (asus ones are usually very nice), this would help newbies set up their hardware correctly (like making sure your hard disk controlers are in AHCI mode). It could even cover some basic overclocking and bios updating.

I also usually turn off all the controllers and options I don't use (LAN boot, unused HDD controlers, unused sound controlers, etc.) to make my boot faster.

As for the OS, it would be pretty cool to have a video on Hackintosh, because although I hate Apple and Mac OS, I have multiple friends that want that (more performance, cheaper build, Mac OS for video editing/music creating).

That was terrific, it really was. I enjoyed watching that video throughly, very very informative. I built my PC myself recently and I wish this had come out before it...it would be a lot less cluttered.

Clip on the PCIe slot should be clipt in before screwing or afrter screwing GPU card (to the rig), but it should be clip in, just to be shure your graphic chart do not jump out while carrying your rig to lanpary :-) and of course open clip before pluging in graphic card or you could break the end of the card conector (L shaped part of the connector). Absolutely ground yourself before touching CPU or RAM or GPU (wear cotton clothing, it reduce static electricity, ok this is a litle bit paranoid on static electricity)

Apart from that video is 10/10 two thumb up :-)

nice job guys, although you sound like you didn't have that much time to do the voiceover... ;) 

for an OS-installation guide, I'd like to see OS X, maybe combine that with the chip-in money, and build an bitfenix-prodigy-hackintosh for editing and applebashing! keep up the good work! and check your e-mail Logan!

posted 3 years 8 months ago

Great work on your site and show, first of all.

In regards about the video I would really like to see how to install a Hackintosh, because it seems a bit complicated.

Thanks TekSynidicate team :)

Very well done and informative as always. Glad I'm apart of the community.

Was just watching the Linus livestream and he gave this vid, TekSyndicate and Logan a shoutout.

lols i just realized that I never utilized the hidden wiring panel in my pc case....Thanks logan! Now to build that frontier courage and disassemble and reassemble my system. courage failing....

Your videos are fantastic, esp the budget build ones.  Thing to note: PSUs always vent hot air out the back of the case, so regardless of whether PSU is bottom-mounted, fan down, pulling cool air from outside, or whether it is top-mounted, fan down, pulling warm case air from inside, the hot air will always go out the back.

This video was the reason why I became so damn excited to build my PC. I was going to pay to have someone else build my PC, but after researching how its done and watching this video multiple times I decided to build it. It ended up being simple, and fun. I also learned a lot about my computer by doing this, and researching. Thanks for this awesome video!
