    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.

    Or lay icecubes on the motherboard. That's how all pro's overclock. The ghetto use of the motherboard is turning down your fans and bake a egg on it.

    I just watched three videos all over an hour long on how to put together a PC by this guy: https://www.youtube.com/user/CareyHolzman?feature=watch

    He has several videos of putting together PCs ranging from less complex to an overkill gaming PC. He talks about how to handle the MoBo and makes it really comforting and simple. I highly recommend watching. Even if you already know how to build a PC, he's so entertaining and informative that I feel like you gain something from each video regardless.
