    Hi Carey – Another great video. I used your specs and instructions to put together my new computer last May.. It runs great and I can now retire my old 10 year computer. You gave me the courage to make my new assembly and I thank you. Being 94 isn’t the right time to make any big steps but you help was just what I needed. Thanks!

    Ah good to catch up the end I missed as time zone and sleep called me 😎

    Thanks for the video!

    Hello, Carey. It is always good to repeat what we have learned so far.

  8. Ron on September 13, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Latecomer to this video, excellent viewing for an old tech that has been out of the business a long time..wonder if you can give me your thoughts on why AMD is more difficult to configure than Intel? Love your videos and catching up with you and the newer tech..!

    I buy a lot of lease return Dells. I add a video card because these computers have Display ports (can use adapters). But the power supplies are a joke. Usually under 300 watts and very lightweight. I tried using a regular power supply but the MB takes only a 4 pin and 8 pin plug. I bought an adapter for the 8 pin from the 24 pin plug but the computer won’t tun on with the case switch. Do you know of any ATX power supplies with an 8 pin plug? Thanks.

  10. Nick Poverman on September 13, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Great build. I ordered everything but the case and power supply. I already have the case. Ordered a better EVGA power supply 650 W Gold with a 10 year warranty. This will replace my 2015 build.

    You’re savage. I love how you told it how it is. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in all the numbers. A lot of the euthasists think they are experts but can barely tell you anything that means anything. It’s nice to know like it’s nice to know that birds fly.

  12. mp6814 on September 13, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    Thanks, Carey. This is very useful and appreciated, likely so much so that 30k views later this list adds up to almost $1k (ca. 37% higher). NB: motherboard is available through newegg.

    Hey Carey!

    I’m a long time viewer and fan, I built my first system back in 2017 thanks to your videos, and I’m currently building my third system with similar parts as in this video. I expect the PC to last a long time. 🙂 Thank you for everything you do, and I hope you keep it up for many years to come!

    If anyone’s interested in the build, it’s:

    i5 10400
    16gb corsair vengeance lpx 2666mhz
    Gigabyte b460 hd3
    Zotac GTX 1660 SUPER twin fan
    Corsair cx450 450w power supply
    Samsung 860 EVO ssd

    I’ve been eyeballing that Threadripper.

  15. Jay Vee on September 13, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    It was great to watch you build a system again. you’re the best.

  16. 4BetaMale2 on September 13, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    $650.00 is what it will cost if I was to only buy Corsair RGB light/cooling system. That is 5 140mm top level rgb fans, 34 RGB LEDs per fan. 4 120mm fans with the same 34 RGB LEDs. 4 RGB light strips, 1 master controller, 2 flexible diffused RGB lighting strips.

    Why Corsair? Because they’ve got an entire eco system. So if one of the fan goes out you can replace it with virtually the same fan.
    Versus of fly by night company that you get the whole system for $150. But then a year goes by and a fan or 3 goes out and your look for replacement fans but the company has going out of business.
    Now you’re stuck without 3 fans.
    So you’ll have to get something similar but not the same and good luck getting it to work with the existing parts of your RBG lighting/cooling system.

    AHOY CAREY: My wife & I are not Computer savvy . But we have learned many things from you. So we know the little things to look for when buying computers . So your show tech uses more that you think. THANKS Mr. Carey

    will this computer run microsoft flight simulator 2020?

  19. Micah Harman on September 13, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    So cool to see something that just works and doesn’t need a ton of fussing about. To think this is basicly the build you would do back with 4th gen chips and z97 boards just with updated parts. Once you find something that works why change it

  20. james dean on September 13, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    such knowledge….listen up ppl!!!! …excellent channel

  21. gameflux on September 13, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    I am so glad that RTX sound thing is off !

  22. Russell Starr on September 13, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    A friend had this huge red breed Doberman (show quality) and someones Black Lab showed up and tried to be aggressive. The Doberman bowled him over and laid on top of the Lab until he quit struggling. No problem after that.

  23. All Tech Daily on September 13, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    hello sir careyholzman how are you sir,

  24. Micah Harman on September 13, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Carey great work looking at doing a similar build for myself just adding a 16 series graphics card for doing 3d modeling and buisness work once I have the money. Would you recommend swapping out the h370 and 9700k for a 400 series chipset and a 10700k. You have done great work and have made me want to build my own system

  25. Jazz Sinclair on September 13, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Hey Carey! Just a thought for you. When dealing with loosey-goosey backplates, I put a strip of electrician’s tape across it to hold it in place while I fiddle. Works like a charm. Congrats on 320k subs. Soon it will be a million! …Peace – Jazz

  26. VInce Morath on September 13, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    As usual great video. I really like this configuration. Think I will have to build one for myself. Thanks for sharing.

  27. Charles Ross on September 13, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    love your live build ……Wollongong Australia. thak you.

  28. Gregory McCutcheon on September 13, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    I am in process of build and rebuild six desktop mid-tower’s, one full-tower, and upgrade/maintain of three lap-top PC’s. This is some work I have been wanting to get to for several years. Finally I feel comfortable enough to take the time to do this and I believe I can be successful in my endeavour. I have two server config’s to do as part of this, and in the end it is to consolidate my IT Studies that I do this. I had a go at Advanced Computer System”s Engineering at Cert IV, Diploma and Advanced Diploma levels commencing in 2010. The closest I got to any Certification was in 2013, when for the first time, I managed to almost complete the full year of study apart from three module’s of study that I had to withdraw from in the last month of that final semester. Since then I have formally retired to the Age Pension, here in Australia. But I still retain an interest in IT…watching your video’s on YouTube about PC building, maintain and repair, together with your ongoing Life as an IT Tech, is not only something that I also do aspire to, but that this has also been an inspiration to me, Mr Holzman, watching what you do over the past few months…I only wish I had come across your video’s much earlier in the piece, while I was still doing IT Essentials and so on…Perhaps I may have been in a bit better position to be more successful with my on-going studies with IT Tech Thankyou for the inspiring work that you do…

  29. Larry Luke on September 13, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    this mother board is not available, do you have a substitution?

  30. Parker Morse on September 13, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Thank you Carey for the videos

  31. Vishnu. Mg on September 13, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Very good

    @CareyHolzman Love your channel and insights into the real IT Tech world. Appreciate your advice on the Scythe Mugen 5. Replaced stock cooler on my R7 3700X, it is so quiet and cools much better. The fan very rarely ramps up and even then it’s barely audible. Thank You! If it came in all black, wow it would be disruptive to overpriced cooler market. I agree, why should I listen to someone I am not paying for work? Old saying "You get what you pay for." Thanks for providing real, usable computer advice to us 97%ers. Keep it up and ignore the naysayers, they are not worth your time or effort. Love the positive vibe on your channel and live chat. Yours is the only channel I donate to and turn on Live Chat.
