    Default Motherboards Scare Me

    So, I usually tinker with the smaller components in my PC(CPU, GPU, PSU...) but messing with my motherboard scares the crap out of me.

    Im afraid of not mounting it properly and blowing the entire system or poking it randomly by mistake while installing.

    So, Tech Corner, what are your motherboard secrets?

    juggle with it before you put it in there. Don;t worry if it falls. They're made to be dropped on the ground.

    Don't forget to clean it with soap and water. Dry it off with your vacuum.

    Actually, you've heard of water cooling right? Whenever your system gets hot you might want to spray it down with a little cold water.
