A wild advertisement appeared if any of you guys need a legit website for your tech YouTube channel blog or whatever the dot tech squad is offering $5.00 dot tech domains until April 8th with the code awesomesauce this is a new initiative so many domain names haven't been taken yet that's why I was able to score awesomesauce Tech before any of you guys could snag it first and try selling it to me later trolls go check it out I put a link in the description ok bye what's up guys today I'm dealing with a topic that might not require much explaining to you DIY veterans out there but for the novice or first-time PC builder choosing the parts for a PC and ensuring they're all compatible with each other can be a daunting task so to make life a little easier for the young PC master-race i've decided to throw together the ultimate PC hardware compatibility guide the first step is to make a list of parts on PC port picker comm and see if you pass the site's compatibility check if it checks out you're done guys thanks for watching I hope you learned a lot from this video wait hold on let's back up I need to throw together the ultimate PC hardware compatibility guide now while a PC list making site like PC part picker already offers a built-in compatibility checker after doing some research I found that such automated systems aren't always 100% accurate especially when it comes to gauging specific clearance parameters or taking specialized situations into account so hopefully by the end of this video you'll have a greater understanding of how various PC parts relate to each other and thus a higher chance of choosing all the right hardware that being said I use PC part picker all the time personally it's a fantastic site that I'd recommend using too part out your belt I'm just giving you the necessary information in this video that a universal algorithm can always provide so in order to thoroughly explain the vast network of PC part Association I've been working with a team of highly intelligent field mice to develop the octagon of compatibility these are the 8 main parts you'll most likely need to build your next PC for the record I've omitted optical drives here because one they're not nearly as relevant these days and two there was no more room in the Octagon looking at the chart you can think of each of these parts as a puzzle piece that needs to fit with certain other parts in the group to make a working computer here's what all the compatibility lines for every part looks like and we'll be going over each of today now I can tell most of you are already like this I'm out of here but don't saddle up just yet because I'm gonna break it down for you all nice and simple so that even a child or a Donald Trump supporter can understand rather than trying to tackle all these lines at once let's start by talking about the computer case and work our way around the octagon so for starters the relationship between cases and motherboards is pretty simple motherboards come in a number of sizes or form factors but the most common ones from smallest to largest are mini ITX micro ATX ATX and extended ATX or EA TX for short once you know what kind of board you're dealing with you can look on a cases product page to see what types of boards it supports some cases support more than one type of board but I would advise against putting a small board inside a larger case if you want to use your system to its fullest additionally your motherboard should have the necessary headers for plugging in your cases front panel connectors this includes the elements at the front of your case like USB ports to avoid a lifetime of pain and sorrow take a look at exactly what external connectors your case is rockin then check for the corresponding headers on your motherboard as a quick pro tip a single USB 3 header on your motherboard can support up to two USB ports on your case and the same goes for a USB 2 header your GPU or video card also needs to fit comfortably inside your chassis first check to see how many PCI slots your video card has then verify that your case has the same number of expansion slots or more these days most cards are only two slots wide and most cases have at least two expansion slots so this really isn't a big concern if anything you're more likely to run into clearance issues with the length of your GPU again check the manufacturers website this time making sure that the length of your video card is shorter than the cases maximum supportive graphics card length the height and thickness of the cards cooler can also pose clearance issues but usually that's only if you're building inside of a toaster the CPU cooler has a similar relationship with your case as the GPU if you're going with a non liquid air cooler the main thing to look out for here is the height of the cooler versus the cases maximum supported CPU cooler height for all in one liquid coolers pay attention to its radiator size which is usually either 120 240 280 or 360 millimeters long then check to see if the case in question supports radiators of that particular size to guarantee a cases compatibility with a power supply there factors to consider here the first one being form-factor life motherboards power supplies come in a variety of sizes too but the two main types are ATX and SFX SFX is typically only used in small form-factor cases so unless you're building a super portable PC chances are you'll
