HOW TO BUILD A PC

These days a computer is an essential need. Every work is done by a computer. if you work in the office or if you are a student you need a computer in your life to make work simpler. so, everyone wants their personal pc. But the requirement of everyone is not the same. The requirement is depending on the work. so, here you find the information about what you need for your pc and how to build it.

All these devices are in one CPU, so we have to keep some information about all these devices.

MOTHERBOARD

          The motherboard is the printed circuit board. It allows communicating between other devices, like RAM, PROCESSOR, GRAPHICS CARD, and HARDDRIVE, etc. The motherboard is the main and a big circuit board in the computer.

It is very important to know about the motherboard before build your pc. Because the motherboard has many types. Choose a motherboard depends on what RAM, PROCESSOR, and GRAPHICS CARD you want.

PROCESSOR

The processor is the brain of a computer. it is a logic circuit that responds to and processes the basic instruction that runs a computer. A processor enables your computer to interact with all of the application and process program installs.

Intel and AMD are the two main competitors in the processor market.

GRAPHICS CARD

A graphic card is a device that helps to produce the image you can see on a monitor. Due to the graphics card, an image is rendering to your monitor. Graphic card converting data into a signal so monitor can understand.

 The reason for getting a graphics card is gaming or heavy editing work. so, if you are not a gamer for the editor you don’t need a graphics card for your PC.

RAM

Random Access Memory (RAM) is a computer memory that can be used to store working data and machine code. RAM Gives an application a place to store and access data on a short-term basis. RAM stores the information on your computer is actively using so that it can be accessed quickly.

HARDDRIVE

The hard disk is a data storage device that uses Magnetic storage to store digital data. Hard disk has one or more rigid rapidly rotating platters coated with magnetic material. The platter is paired with a magnetic head.

 But nowadays we generally used SSD solid-state drive which is faster than the hard disk drive but also very expensive so it’s up to you what you choose for your storage device.

switched-mode power supply (SMPS) is an electronic circuit that converts power DC or AC source and supply power for computer components.

CABINET

PC case or cabinet comes in many different sizes and shapes. its size determined by the form factor of the motherboard. rather it comes different size and shape but PC case or cabinet have only one work to do. that all the computer components have held in one place and also protect computer components. there are many types of a cabinet in the market small, medium, mid-Tower, etc.

INSTALL CPU

Depending on what quite CPU you bought (Intel or AMD), the chip will have either little prongs on one side (don’t touch them) or little golden contacts on one side (don’t touch them). Seriously, don’t touch that side of your chip. Oils from your fingertips can damage the contacts, otherwise, you might bend a pin. Do either one and your processor becomes nothing quite an upscale hunk of silicon.

Seating your processor is pretty easy. First, double-check your motherboard’s instructions and confirm you’ve unlocked the processor socket. It’ll be an enormous square with a bunch of little holes (or contacts), with a lever or button beside it. Your motherboard’s instructions will say explicitly the way to unlock the socket so you’ll put your processor in with no issues.

Once you’ve confirmed that it’s unlocked and prepared, just find which corner of your processor features a little golden triangle and line it up with an equivalent symbol on your motherboard’s processor socket. Gently put the processor into the socket, then gently flip the latch or locking mechanism. You shouldn’t need to fight it. If you’ve got to press really hard, double-check that the processor is socketed correctly.

Next, you’re getting to need your thermal paste. that tiny plastic syringe of silvery goo is extremely important for this next step. Now that your processor is seated, take a glance at the shiny square of silicon within the centre of it. That’s where your conductor goes to take a seat. Your processor came with a conductor, and on one side of it, you’ll see a copper circle. You’re getting to be putting the warmth sink directly on top of the processor after we apply the thermal paste, with the silicone square and therefore the copper circle lining up perfectly.

Go ahead and punctiliously squeeze a small ball (no bigger than a pea) of thermal paste onto the silicon square on your processor. You’ll want it as on the brink of the middle as you’ll get.

Now line up your conductor with the screws surrounding your processor, and gently lower it into place. You’re squish the thermal paste, and therefore the goal here is to make a skinny layer covering the rear of your processor. It’s OK if it oozes a touch bit, but if it oozes out and over the sting of the processor, you used an excessive amount of. Get some isopropanol, dab it on a lint-free wipe, and wipe the processor and warmth sink. Wait till they’re thoroughly dry and check out again.

If it’s all right, screw your conductor into place. Flip back to your motherboard reference book and find the proper place near the processor socket to connect your heat sink’s cooling fan. It should be very on the brink of your processor socket.

INSTALL MEMORY

Memory is probably the simplest thing to put in. See those vertical little sockets beside the CPU? Line up your sticks of RAM and slot them in, Memory is probably the simplest thing to put in. See those vertical little sockets beside the CPU? Line up your sticks of RAM and slot them in, ranging from the left-hand slot. They’ll lock into place once you’ve fixed them properly. If you’ve got two sticks of RAM, confirm to skip a slot between them. Your motherboard manual should instruct you about which slots to use.

For your disk drive or solid-state drive, find an empty bay within the front-facing a part of your case. Slide your drive in and screw it into place like we did with the facility supply.

If you’ve got an M.2 drive (a tiny SSD about the dimensions of a stick of gum), there should be an area on the motherboard where you fit it indirectly. inspect your motherboard’s manual to ascertain where the M.2 slot is ranging from the left-hand slot.

INSTALL GRAPHICS CARD

our GPU goes to be pretty big. Even a modestly powerful GPU just like the GTX 3090 is large compared to your other components. meaning how it fits into your case is vital. Once you set your GPU in there, space goes to start out getting tight.

Flip open your motherboard’s reference book again and appearance for a PCIe slot. It’s getting to be a horizontal slot with a touch plastic latch beside it, near the centre or bottom of your motherboard. That’s where the GPU plugs in. All you would like to try to do is identify the rear of your GPU (the side with the HDMI and DisplayPort’s), a line that up with the rear of your case, and put the GPU into the horizontal slot. It should lock into place easily enough, and if it doesn’t, confirm you’re inserting it correctly.

Find another one among those tiny little screws and fasten your GPU to the case. There’s a touch spot for that on an equivalent piece of metal with the HDMI ports. It should be easy to seek out.

Now, take a glance at the cables beginning of your power supply. There should be a couple of that appear as if they might fit into the square (or rectangular) socket on the side of your GPU. It should appear as if six or eight little holes during a rectangle shape. If you’re having trouble, take a glance at this video from hardware manufacturer Asus. a number of the specifics are going to be different, but it’s an excellent check out the way to install a GPU.

POWER SUPPLY

you will find a place to put in your power supply. There should be a spot for it near the highest or bottom of the case, an enormous square spot that will suit your supply perfectly. If you’re having trouble finding it, check out the rear of your case: There’ll be an enormous empty square. That’s where the facility supply goes (and where you’ll connect your PC when you’re all done). Once you’ve found its place, slot it in and screw it into place.

Make sure all the cables beginning of the facility supply will reach your motherboard with room to spare.

This is your final step. Take the motherboard manual and connect all your wire to your motherboard just like the motherboard manual says. And it’s done you build your pc. Just install the operating system in your pc.
