There's a video of someone building a $2,000 PC, and it is...... highly questionable.

4 posts in this topic

One of my mates showed me this. I......... I can't believe this is an actual video posted online by this company & they think it's actually acceptable. This has got to be a sick prank by them to ruin other people's PC after they follow the STUPIDASS instructions it provided. The beginning itself is already clear that everything is going downhill from then onwards: How the hell that instead of a normal screwdriver, this person recommends a SWISS ARMY KNIFE THAT HOPEFULLY HAS A SCREWDRIVER IN IT?? 😠😠😠

 

The best part is the highly exaggerated Chinese guy, who as it turns out, is purposefully talking that way cause that's his joke character voice. Normally he speaks like normal for other videos in his channel. 

 

"That's a Livestrong bracelet. He not fighting static, he fighting cancer." OMG that made me laugh so hard. XD

well I mean the quality of the video is extreme low, and could get better advice from youtube comments overall, BUut this is just nitpicking Every Little Detail in the video. It's just a way for viewers to vent on people whom they think are stupid.

Just an example a thermal paste applicator, sure being just a luxury item, is useful in that it helps Prevent Malfunctions by making sure the PC doesn't explode or whatever due to overheating, electric overloads, or electrical discharges due to unchecked electric flow. Making a huge deal about it is just silly and immature, and if a guy Uses thermal paste to prevent problems and destruction of property that just is Logical and makes sense. Heat can destroy your computer And light your house on fire, so what is the problem with this tool? Not a problem, just Overblown by youtubers trying to appease masses of people looking for jokes and roasts for entertainment.

Actually you don't need a thermal paste applicator to apply a thermal paste. All you gotta do is put just enough in the center of a CPU because it will spread itself evenly to the rest of the CPU after you press a cooler on top of it.

Worst part is he didn't even use that applicator ice cream plastic spoon thingy, he just mentioned that thing out of his ass. What that guy did with his thermal paste in the video is...... fucking terrible. That will make the CPU overheat very quickly & that liquid will spread everywhere. That PC will be dead after just a short while, compounded by everything else wrong he did.

 

Also that video I showed was just a funny compilation of some of the youtubers who reacted. If you see their individual videos, they actually go into more detail on what's wrong, like this guy for example.

They are mostly PC building youtube channels, so they know what they're talking about.

 

There's a ton more reactions out there, even newbie PC owners think that video is just a troll job. Everyone who knows the basic of PC building agrees that this guy is a dumbass. Worst part is the Verge, aka the one who posted the original video without the reaction, not only removed the video out of shame, but they also issued copyright strikes to the youtubers

Yeah, these guys are that petty.

I would agree that having this out there from a "credible" source would confuse people that do little to no research (which is most people over 35 and do not Need to do it for work or something) and just happen to watch it and, thus, doing it very wrong and possibly suffering negative events such as fires. Nit-picking Every detail =no matter how ridiculous= I would say is just hate-mongering; But the video being Such low quality would have these negative ramifications if these people decided to try this build, and it failing badly for them, is a problem which is also mostly a Social Consensus issue. 

This being a big issue with social consensus, it really is a Big problem with corporate Editing. Like Who is responsible for the fact-checks in these companies that this type of content is suitable and acceptable or release, if it has such a clear negative impact on the educated community? Fallout 76 is one example, and the Oscars where they announced the wrong film for the award at the end (La La Land... ugh). Everyone needs to realize that even though 1 stupid person releases something, there are Many people responsible for the "farm-to-table" supply chain of these products and 'services', so regardless of his Individual unprofessionalism there are dozens =if not hundreds= of professionals that agreed to its' release and are the real problem.

Someone should consider pushing Legislation to prevent companies from releasing bad information from a "credible" source.
