Building a PC, HotHardware and This Old Nerd Style

In lieu of our regularly scheduled episode of Two and a Half Geeks this week, we decided to feature a rather lengthy video we put together with our podcast host, Iyaz, for his show This Old Nerd, detailing the steps necessary to assemble a system from start to finish. One of Marco’s incredibly cute daughters also makes a few surprise cameos throughout the vid if you pay attention to what’s going on in the background...

For many of you HotHardware regulars, this video may be a bit elementary, but if you’ve never built a system before or have friends or family thinking about taking the plunge, we hope this helps demystify some of the process.

A special thanks goes out to our friends at Patriot Memory and Thermaltake for helping make the video possible.

Iyaz is a pup, hardly an "Old Nerd" really but the name of his show wouldn't work as well without the "old" in there.

I kinda want to see more of the cabling part of this build, i need some tips in cabling.

Even though I can't get the video to load, I'm sure this'll be a great help to anybody building their first system.

Also cable management is easy once you know how you do it. If you don't have a space to stuff the cables, just find unused places to hide the unneeded cables, tie the cables together tightly and bam! You've got cable management.

That's what I did with my PC, and it's still working fine after all of these years.

Marco did another video about building a PC with a lot more info on the cabling. You can watch it here: http://hothardware.com/Reviews/How-To-Build-A-Computer-System-Assembly-101/

I have that dorky blue usb3 cable running from the front panel all the way back through the WC hole and into the usb3 port on the back as well. IMO cases should be left without it until motherboards get with it and add some headers, but just wanted to say that annoys me too.

Iyaz how do you like that corsair cooler, is that the a50?
