Building Gaming PC
Now in this era gaming PC building is in demand and all are want to learn how to building gaming PC at home. So, here is a quick guide for gaming PC build. All aspects related to PC are covered in this post.
In this post, you will find best components for your gaming PC building like PC cases, CPU, RAM, GPU, SSD and many more PC components. In this component, you will get choice as per budget and as per performance.
The best part of PC Building is no specific skill required for gaming pc building. Everyone will able to do this only, basic PC knowledge is required. In PC Building a fairly straightforward process to be followed and exact power supply provide to PC.
Choose the Right Parts for Gaming PC Building
Most important part to get the right part for fulfilling your needs. First, you should clear that which programmers or game you want to install on PC. After this choose parts as per performance and budgets. Choose components from well-known brands or check brands before buying any items.
Wrong part picking may cause problem or damage to other parts in PC. Wrong parts also cause a problem in performance or reduce the capability of other components. Check our best guide for each component and then check the compatibility using our brief checklist below.
Best Gaming PC Building Parts
As per user review, we choose best parts for PC.
What you’re generally looking for components:
Cabinets: Cabinets comes in different shapes and factors. It depends upon size of PC you want.
PSU: Needs to supply enough power supply – 500W is a good value.
Processor: In this you have two choice Intel and AMD desktop processors. Take best from it and note the socket they use because you will need to match socket for the motherboard.
Motherboard: Motherboard simply needs to match the same socket type of the CPU. other fetures are down to price and preference.
RAM: More faster frequency more better RAM. You will make sure that your motherboard support the same clock speed RAM. Generally new motherboard support DDR4 RAM.
Storage: It’s depend upon your personal need.You can choose from best HDD. But we always recommend SSD for Windows.
GPU: It’s are compulsory for better gaming performance. You can choose as per games and programme you want to run on it.
But Wait!!! We recommended you use an automated tool that checks entered components against a database to confirm that there are no conflicts. It protects us from worth firing and worth loss of money.
Visit below websites that allow for comparison between different parts. It save our money and it will also provide warnings for any issues detected.
Gaming PC Building Guide
Here we arrange best way to install parts inside cabinet. You can follow other steps but these is best and easy way build pc. First prepare all parts and screws use in this process.
- Installing PSU
- Installing Processor
- Installing RAM
- Installing Motherboard
- Installing storage drives
- Plugging Everything
- Adding Casing Fans
- Installing GPU
PSU is the most important part for any PC. It provide energy for all components to see magic. Install PSU unit with fan facing up or down. For best performance check your cabinets if air vent is at bottom than PSU fan will be downwards.
- Slide PSU in mounting area with fan facing up and down.
- Use screw comes with cabinets in four at the rear of cabinets.
- Turn off rear switch of PSU.
- Plug PSU in free socket to ground PC.
- All cables come out from PSU, put together at onside.
Now it’s time to insert Processor into the motherboard. It’s easy process whether you use Intel or AMD processors.
- First Unbox motherboard from packing.
- Place motherboard on soft surface.
- Open processor latch and remove plastic cap.
- Insert process in it. See notches and indicators on it and don’t apply heavy pressure.
- Close the latch to secure processor. In closing latch required some pressure.
- Now we use thermal paste and attach CPU cooler to complete process. Apply layers of thermal paste on processor, it’s depend upon the cooler you purchase.
How to Install An Intel Processor
RAM is very sensitive part of PC, you should handle it with care. Generally in latest motherboards DDR4 ram is used and there are four ram slots in it, this ram slots is right side of processor. As per user manual use ram slots to get better performance.
- Unclip RAM slots locks on motherboard module.
- Match the RAM notches with motherboard module. Insert RAM carefully in it, Use light weight in this process.
- After inserting RAM apply light weight until motherboard module locks done.
After installing processor, cooler and RAM on motherboard, Motherboard is ready to install in cabinet. Use proper screw for installing it.
- Place I/O shield to the rear cutout in the PC cabinet and click into place.
- Hover motherboard atop at back plate to see where standoffs need to be screwed in. standoffs are the screws installed on back plate of motherboard.
- Install the standoffs for motherboard, if not already per-installed and Lower motherboard onto the standoffs.
- Tight screws on motherboards but don’t overtight it.
Installing storage drives
Storage drives are brain of PC. It holds not only operating system but also hold all programs and documents. We personally recommended to use SSD for main OS and programs installation and HDD for your all media as well as all document storage. Using SSD it reduces time for booting.
SSD and HDD Installation
- Take SSD Bracket and attach drive in it.
- Tight it with proper screws and attach it into the Cabinet.
Plugging Every Parts in Cabinet
All major parts are install in PC cabinets. Now time to give power supply to motherboard. Let’s power up from motherboard.
Motherboard: PSU has two cables for the board: 24-pin ATX and 8-pin CPU. Route these behind back plate, using available grommets and cutouts.
Storage drives: Today most SSD and HDD use SATA connectors. These are 15-pin flat connectors with a dip on one side to prevent plugging them in the wrong way. Route these from the PSU to the drive bays and mounts, using more than one lead from the PSU if required.
Now connect storage drives to motherboards, at lower left hand there are connection ports. Connect it to Storage drives.
We now have power to our storage drives and to the motherboard, as well as data channels between drives and the main board. All that’s really left is to connect front panel I/O and other optional connectors. Connecting the front panel I/O, which includes power switch, reset switch, HDD activity LED, and power LED.
These pins stand up from the motherboard, which requires a careful approach when plugging in the small connectors. USB 3.0 and HD audio pins can be located on the motherboard.USB 3.0 and HD audio pins can be located on the motherboard.
Cabinet Fans Installation
For more cooling and better overclocking performance use extra fans. PC cases comes with fans, if not them use external fans and attach it into cabinet casing. Fans are plugged into motherboards or direct PSU.
If you need some extra power and speed then add graphics card in your PC. It will boost your speed and improve your gaming experience.
- Unscrew rear PCI brackets that align with PCI slots you will use.
- Check that, motherboard GPU card latch is open.
- Remove protective cap that covers the PCI strip on GPU.
- Line up the GPU to the PCIe slot on the motherboard.
- Insert the card and push down once it has made contact with the slots, Use rear bracket screws to secure GPU to the PC case for stability.
Let’s Power Up PC
Now it’s time to enjoy your PC experience. Switch on PSU power switch. You should now be greeted by the BIOS POST screen, asking for an OS to be installed if one is not detected. You’ll now need to follow OS installation instructions.
