Digital multimeter is all you need. Please wear proper safety gear when testing. PSU can kill more than components, it can kill people.

Your own forum doesn’t approve this site because it’s not accurate at all.

Some more tips:
For monitor use displayport cables not hdmi.
Make sure you have long enough cables.
Dont extend usb over troughput specific lengths.
No IDE ripping any more, but still, dont bend cables to death.
Modular PSU benefits with leaving out a cable or two vs just ziptie up the leftover.
If you first start your machine, dont plug all usb stuff into it, just the most necessary to avoid issues.
Make sure gpu height and length are ok with your case. Tall cards exists.
Try to keep your vga and audio cables far from other cables and electronics to avoid interferences.
Dont spare the extra 2 fans by lazyness, add those to your case.

If you connect a new external drive to your PC, don't forget to turn the cache on in the windows settings, otherwise it will be slow. Unless if you want it to be hot swappable. Oh And connect it to the fastest USB slot of course.

When I was building my first pc a couple days ago I broke the spacer on my pci e slot, thankfully my graphics card works just fine

So many guys will boast a 1k watt power supply.... for a cheap ass PC with 1 card.
It always confuses me when I do encounter this. Confuses me because it's pretty common and because... well, who tf boasts about a PSU.

I have been using 500W PSUs for almost 20 years now and they have always been enough for my gaming needs with strong gfx cards. It is more important to get a high quality unit (80 gold or higher) instead of excessive power.

Figured I'd check this video before commenting on a tip I thought of watching ep.5. Linus mentioned m.2 drives not all being nvme, however he didn't mention that some m.2 slots on the motherboard may only support one type of m.2 drive! Usually this will be on motherboards with 2+ slots, where one of them may only support one type of the drive, but the other will support any.

I got a Corsair 900D thinking I was going to do water cooling and then in the end I never ended up doing water cooling and was stuck with a gigantic case taking up a bunch of space and paying more for a case than what I actually needed. The next build I want to go either Mini-ITX, Mini-DTX, or try to go with something like an ATX Mid Tower at the most since im not a fan of watercooling.

Really? Recommending Seasonic S12 ancient and outdated scam of a PSU? Glad you've spend your research time on movie references and not the subject of the video.

PC Ventilators were my huge concern.
Until,while seeking silence friendly casing,I stumbled upon casing with 3 supposedly silent ventilators.
Now, I have nothing to compare it to,but it got me what I wanted.
I can barely hear anything.
Well most of the time anyways.
Sometimes it can get a bit louder true,likely a CPU stock cooler,but still not loud enough to be heard outside of my room.
Even during night.
Which is exactly what I wanted.

I also got Seasonic power supply.
S12II Silent 12CM Fan Series 620 80+ Bronze 620W.
Old,but reliable model...or so I heard.
So far so good.

Flaws?
It's not modular.

I got a 1200W Phanteks Revolt in my new system (that's waiting on a Ryzen 9 3900X) because I was gonna stuff a 2nd system in my Evolv X, but I got a 240mm radiator on top that blocks that idea. So I just got a high wattage PSU for one system now.

Suggestion: USB slots are not all equal. Your cheap case/motherboard with X USB ports may not work with newer periferals if they're using older USB standards.

Linus Tech Tips, can you make a video which compares the benchmarks of GPUs in a desktop and a eGPU on a laptop?

@Danny Jones thank you for the information

its already been done and its like 10-15% slower or somewhere along those lines cause there is only so much a TB3 cable can transfer
