How do you put your processor in?
How do you put your processor in? I know there is the one proven way to do it with the water band. I know many people ignore the basic procedure to putting in processors. I learned the quick way my first time into it. I put it in while sitting on my bedroom floor. Did I mention my room is carpeted. Enough said. Laugh as much as you want for the fact I had to run and get a second processor.

LOL...static kills another CPU

Now CPUs cost a fair few hundred pounds, people are gonna be out of pocket a lot I think lol.

Bet you read the instructions for your second CPU eh Raven? To be honest I have killed a few systems when I couldnt be bothered to read manuals or was working on the floor etc...Its all a learning experience (though maybe an expensive one)

I can't be bothered reading like 50 pages just ofor one part. It takes too long, and is extremely boring.:(

But cheaper than frying parts lol

ChatMod#1 03-04-2006 09:51 PM

Ya, if you say it like that. Otherwise you could just get a assembled comp.

Nah, I have built my own PC since I was 13. Pre assembled are way too expensive for what they are..and the customer support generally suck from what I've heard...Much better to build yourself.

If you know how to do it properly, then it is absoilutely fine.:)

Building your own is the only way to go
i'm on about my 3rd comp that i've built myself, not counting the numerous parts i've tested and fixed for my friends/family over the years. You can buy pre-built computers, but where's the satisfaction in that?

ChatMod#1 03-06-2006 12:55 AM

Yes, that's true. If you like putting comps together, then realising that u have made urself a comp and then using it, it gives you a satisfaction that you did it all by urself.:)

I totally agree with Firefox, building a PC yourself is really worth it. First of all you can learn from your mistakes (for example not to fry a CPU, and trust me I not laughing at that, I've done a lot of things like that ;) ).

I had a dull... I mean dell, and it's just not perfect no matter how much you customize it from pc manufacturers, and plus they don't even give you the parts that you want. Not having a PC you like is not really cool, and like ChatMod#1 said you won't have the satisfaction either.

So just go and get yourself all the parts (no matter how many times you need to get them) and build it yourself, that's what I do atleast. Although it might not be as cheap as dell's or it might not be as easy as a barbone kit, it's still worth it!

The only thing that's sort of a side effect is friends and family coming to you and beging you to make help them build a computer (I'm sure William has experienced this as well)...
