This weekend I built my own gaming PC with the help of my Dad.
I have already made a post about the computer and the parts before if you want to look at them. I wanted to build the computer so I could play some PC exclusive games and also get better FPS (Frames Per Second) First I decided to install the CPU chip into the motherboard along with the CPU cooler. After installing the CPU chip and taking the CPU cooler out, I accidentally smudged some of the thermal paste when picking it up. Luckily I didn’t smudge too much of the paste. After, we install the RAM (Random Access Memory) Installing the RAM was pretty easy. We just had to open the two slots then firmly pushed the RAM sticks in. Although this was easy we had trouble starting up the PC and found out I didn’t seat one of the RAM sticks properly. After we installed the RAM, we put in the power supply which was also easy. We just pushed the power supply into a slot in the case and then screwed it into place. After the power supply, we installed the motherboard to the case which took a while. Once we did that, we installed the hard drive. We had to fiddle with it for a while, but eventually we got it to fit inside the drive cage. After that, we wired all of the parts to the motherboard. We then installed Windows 10 and we had finished the computer.
Now I can play my games with more FPS and some other games I couldn’t previously play on my Mac Mini.
