yo what’s up guys Joey here back at it again with another PC build hope you guys are doing well the budget we’re gonna be working with in this video is 2,000 bucks I’m really excited for this build because this is the first building
on the channel that’s gonna be using an RT X card and we’re gonna be pairing it with the newly released i7 this is an 8 core i7 the 9700 K this is gonna be a full guide guys the video will be broken down into three parts so the first part
is we’re gonna jump right into the building process I’m gonna be going over
each of the parts and how much they cost
as we’re building it and then second I’m gonna show you guys how to install
Windows 10 any necessary drivers you may
need and then last wouldn’t be playing games so yeah guys we went with the RT x
2080 for this build and we’re gonna be
pairing it with the newly released i7
the 9700 K now this is an eight-core
processor Soren up from last gens i7


which was only a 6 core processor so


we’re entering part number 1 of this


video so first things first we’re gonna


be sticking our CPU into our motherboard


the motherboard we chose to go with has


a built in Wi-Fi this is an antenna and


it’s rocking the Z 390 chipset it’s


currently going for $239 and the i7 goes

34
00:01:08,150 –> 00:01:10,460
for $400 so install a CPU it’s pretty


simple just lift this up and then just


line up the golden arrow of the CPU with


the air on the motherboard don’t force
it down because that may bend the pins and we don’t want that that’s not good
it just falls right into place and then just set it back now this thing pops off


just get out the SATA cables to connect
our drives to the motherboard the hard
drive in the SSD and that’s all we’re
gonna need no need to worry about the
i/o shield cuz this motherboard already
has it attached so we picked up a unique
heatsink this one’s by Thermaltake it’s
actually this heatsink back here this PC
also has it so for step one we’re gonna
get this plate and we’re just gonna
stick it behind the motherboard so we’re
gonna be sticking the G screws through
the middle of this thing right here and
just line it up with the four points
alright so once we’ve stuck all of them
through so now just get all four of the
e nuts and secure them onto the G screws
make sure there’s rubber part faces down
on the motherboard so now we’re gonna be working with this thing right here go
ahead and set it on top of the nuts the
a is on my right hand side or they could
be on this I just make sure these two
are positioned here and we’re gonna be
securing this with the F screws let’s go
ahead and get rid of this wrap we don’t
want that when we turn on the PC some
right here too
alright so now we’re gonna be securing
the
to the heatsink we’re gonna be using the
L screws so just place it behind like this then screw it all the way in so our
finished product here clip it in all
right there so we’re gonna be attaching
this now the fan is gonna face this way
so now we’re just gonna be sticking this
thing we’re just gonna sit it in the
middle and then it shouldn’t go anywhere
if you wiggle it this heatsink comes
with its own thermal paste I’m gonna be
using Arctic silver 5 thermal paste
we’re just gonna be putting a pea-sized
amount in the center of the CPU okay and
now we’re finally ready to secure it
into place but of course first remove
this plastic so in order to secure this CPU heatsink you’re gonna need a screwdriver that’s longer than usual it has to be at least 150 millimeters like


this one right here by Milwaukee because

the screwdriver has to travel all the

way down here and then tighten the screw my genius self attach this fan don’t attach this fan before you’re gonna screw it in so now we can secure it into place do each one little by little because then the opposite side is gonna lift up too much this thing’s gonna need power it’s gonna hook up to where it’s labeled CPU fan which is this bottom one right here
alright guys so moving on to our RAM


installation we went with 16 gigs two


sticks of a gigabytes very popular


Corsair Vengeance in the blue colorway


is what we chose knots which should


cause some clean looking around okay so


when installing around very easy


installation only goes in one way


go ahead and lift up this one and this


one so I’m first gonna stick it into the


back one a little bit and then line it


up with the front one and push down to
eclipse this thing should pop back up
and then the same thing for the other
one clip so this case right here guys is
by NZXT see th 500 an ATX case comes in
several colors and it goes for 70 books


go ahead and get this thing out first


thing we want to do is make sure all the


points of them on the board these things


right here line up with the motherboard


standoffs inside of our case so our


motherboard has nine points and in this


case right here already has all the


motherboard standoffs in the appropriate


position all nine of three three three


screws we’re gonna be using her inside


of here so I’m gonna be using the 632


screw flat then just go ahead and screw


in all eight this one doesn’t need one


so this is the gold rated at 650 watt


the power supply from EVGA
currently going for 70 this thing right
this


right here it’s gonna provide all the


juice for your pc components so we’re


gonna be using the CPU power cable so


the VGA power cables to power our


graphics card where we got some SATA


power cables we’re gonna be using this


to power our drives I’m gonna be hooking


up both for them to give me more


flexibility with cable management and


then this one right here hooks up to our


motherboard and those are all the cables


we need alright guys so to insert a


power supply make sure the fan is facing


down I’m gonna be using the 632 screws


to secure the power supply when building


a PC do not get intimidated by all the


cables there’s pretty much two sets of


cables all the cables from our power


supply which powered things and then we


have the case cables right here which


connect these ports to the motherboard


let’s go ahead and take care of these


little case cables first USB 3.0 cable


hooks up right here HD audio cable hooks


up right here and make sure the HD audio


text is up or else that thing won’t go


in and for those of you who have built


pcs in the past you know how convenient


this is for us look how easy this


installation is simply line it up and


connect you’re done alright so moving on


to this side of the motherboard so this


clip right here has to clip back here


these things are not attached so make


sure you attach them before installation


and plug it in moving on up here now


we’re gonna be powering our CPU how am I


gonna do this alright guys see that


right there I’m plugging in the CPU


power cable into that


so this cable also has to clip in and


the clip part is on top I need to remove


this fan for now oh oh I think I got it


I think I got it we think this is now


rears it’s my first time working with


this case but if you decide to go with


this case please please PLEASE plug in


the CPU power cable before you actually


insert the motherboard inside because


that was a pain to plug in so moving on


to our storage devices we went a 500


gigabyte SSD and a 2 terabyte hard drive


the story games from Seagate 60 bucks so


we’re gonna be removing this things by


just pulling them out so in order to get


these things are released you simply


just pull down and then they come right

off so we plug in the SATA data cable
and a SATA power cable from the power supply I’m using the M 3 5 flat screws
to secure the SSD oh it’s good now we
actually have to hook up the other two
ends of the SATA data cables to the
motherboard
our hard drive is gonna go into our
drive cage so we’re gonna be plugging in
the same cables we did to our SSD so


data and power that’s how you connect


the drives to the motherboard so now we


just got a power both of our fans with


the two fan cables which you’re gonna


hook up both of them could just plug in


right here so now we’re gonna be moving


on to stuff that’s optional


I bought radiator fans guys that means


these will not attach right here okay no


fans for the front of our case sigh I’m


just gonna be sticking our RGB LED strip


up here so now I’m gonna plug in the


arrow to the far left side of these four


pins so yeah that’s how you would plug


in any RGB LED device to the motherboard


okay guys this is a pretty cool new box


we got going here my EVGA I like the


packaging I like the presentation EVGA


$790 let’s slice this guy open slice and


dice to all TX 20 oh my god so this
card’s rockin three display ports one


HDMI port and one type-c port it has a
nice little back plate and the front
lights up and it’s ready to go in so

before we enter our graphics card we
have to remove two expansion brackets
we’re gonna be removing the second one
in the third one one and two okay guys


just line it up with the top PCI port so


I got it to line up now just push it in


and it’s in I love him


alright guys now to power our GP we’re


gonna be using our VGA cable so first


we’re gonna be plugging in the eight pin


making sure these are attached and that


eclipses in just like that and for this


one we’re only going to be using six


pins so this thing is just gonna be hanging out and done our gp’s powered


now I’m just gonna be throwing some


Funko pops in there these guys are gonna


go inside Joker may not fit alright this


guy will go right there


and Batgirl like I’m gonna put her on


top of the GPU all right let’s see if


Joker fits in there what’s got the trio


going here very nice that’s dope if only


there was a Batman movie that was coming
to theaters soon but there is a joker
movie on the horizon very excited for
that that’s gonna be dope you can catch me at the midnight premiere of that
movie that’s pretty cool guys I really
like how it came out what do you guys
think so all the parts use in this build
will be linked in the video’s


description if you guys also want to use


Funko pops in your build all


link down below the double-sided tape


that I use pretty much I put it on the


bottom of their feet and then they don’t


go anywhere they stay it’s really strong


tape okay here we go guys


don’t blow up what’s yeah these lights I


got in the background I’m not doing this


PC justice let me turn off the rest of


the lights all right that one’s off this


one’s off yeah guys I’m really pleased


with the way this PC came out so large


appeal LED strip right now is doing its

own thing what we’re gonna do is we’re


gonna install a lighting program which


then allows you to change all the colors


and change the speed of the lights too


or it could just be static which is just


one light showing anyways guys we’re


moving on to part two now which is the


installation of Windows and all

necessary drivers you may need this is a
USB flash drive it already has a
bootable ISO of Windows 10 I’ve made a
video on how to create one of these
links in the description or you can just


buy one we’re just going to connect the
flash drive to the PC and then turn it
on so since both of the drives on our PC


are empty it’s gonna boot directly to
the installation so who you are pick
your language and it’s just a matter of
clicking that’s very simple so if you
had a product key this is you or insert
it I do not have a product key so I’m


just gonna click I don’t have a product


key that means we’re not gonna have a

299
00:09:59,400 –> 00:10:00,960
watermark on the bottom right-hand side


of Windows if you want that to go away
and it annoys you then you just insert a


product key and I’ll go away I’m gonna


be installing Windows 10 Pro we’re gonna


want to do a custom install so then we


could select the drive we want windows


tend to be installed on – I’m gonna be
selecting our SSD next now we just wait
for our files to copy over alright it’s


done it’s gonna restart now so we


arrived here which means all the files
are not copied on to our SSD now this isa matter of just clicking next it’s like
when you Burley buy a new laptop at Best


Buy this is the same set of process


you’ll be greeted with so we arrived at


our desktop guys now this motherboard


does have built-in Wi-Fi I went ahead


and already hooked up the antenna to the


motherboard but it’s not working we


first need to install a driver but this


is the USB Wi-Fi adapter that I use for


every single build it’s pretty much plug


and play so I’m gonna go ahead and plug


it in as you can see down here we can
now connect to a Wi-Fi network so I went

ahead and connected to my home Wi-Fi and
now we need a download drivers so first

we’re gonna be downloading the


motherboard drivers so we’re here on the


motherboards website select Windows 10


64 bit and the ones I’m gonna be


downloading are the Audio Driver


I’m gonna be saving it as so I could


just have it on my desk offers


convenience I’m gonna be downloading the


land driver this is if you’re going to

be using a wired Ethernet connection to


connect to the internet instead of Wi-Fi


under utilities I’m gonna look for the


program that lets me control the RGB LED


strip which is this one a Seuss aura


download and right here under wireless


we have our Wi-Fi driver what we needed


download and as I was scrolling down I


don’t even know this motherboard how to


bluetooth but it does so that’s cool I’m


gonna download that driver as well okay


so those are all the drivers I’m gonna


be downloading there’s of course more


you can pick and choose whichever ones


you want but I’m good for now so once


you’ve finished downloading all the


drivers you’re gonna want to install


we’re gonna have to unzip them by


right-clicking them and then clicking
extract all so right now it’s already


created a new folder this is the unex


tractor one so our Wi-Fi driver is now


unzipped and once it’s done it


automatically opens a new folder so this


is the folder that’s open yup same thing


once we do that we want to just click


the setup process and then it’s just a


matter of clicking next you’re gonna


want to do that for all your drivers all

right it’s that success so we’re gonna


click finish


exit this out and let’s test it just


connect with that and it’s now working


so now we could actually use our


built-in Wi-Fi now we’re gonna be


installing our graphics card drivers and


for that we’re gonna need a GeForce


experience program download now I’m


gonna save it to our desktop so right


here’s the installation we just


downloaded for our graphics card right


here all the drivers that have been


unzipped and I already installed them I


just want to tell you something else


about them some of them may be tricky I


don’t want them to confuse you guys for
example we’re just gonna click Bluetooth
right and you’re gonna click a su setup
yes
all that’s gonna do is that and there
it’s done I just wanted to show you guys
that real quick in case something you
guys thought oh it probably crashed let
me re click it no it just comes up and
then disappears there it’s installed I know it’s weird
now before I install a graphics card
drivers I’m gonna restart the PC after
installing all those drivers so after
the restart we’re now going to be
installing the GeForce experience a
green install so as soon as you open up
the program and sign in it automatically
starts downloading the drivers and then
you just install them and it’s gonna
take care of everything for us and our
graphics card drivers are now installed
we don’t need this anymore I’m just
gonna close it out so now if we go over
to our folder and we go to this PC will
see that our PC only reads one drive not
our hard drive in order to configure our
hard drive we’re gonna search up hard
disk and I spelled it wrong this right
here creating format it automatically
brings up our hard drive and what I’m gonna be selecting GPT okay alright so
now we just right-click this empty space
and put a new simple volume we need to
give the drive a drive letter next I’m
gonna select G since I’m using this
drive for games next I’m gonna title it
two terabyte HDD next finish and done
our PC now reads our hard drive so now
when we go back to this PC our hard
drive is actually showing up so now for
the installation and games I’m gonna be
downloading and installing steam I just
like saving all the installations to my
desktop you can just click run though so
steams installing and that was quick
it’s done so when installing a game on
Steam or any other platform you want to
make sure you navigate to the hard drive
so right now wants to install it onto
our SSD so navigate to the G Drive where
I can create a new folder to stay
organized steam library that’s cool ok
and then select it and next I agree and
now we’re installing the game onto our
hard drive so once you’re done
downloading all your games you then
restart your PC one last time and you’re
finally ready to start playing but first
I’m gonna be showing you guys how to
make sure your RAM is running at its rated speed remember our ram is rated at
3000 megahertz right now it’s currently
not running at that you definitely want to get your money’s worth so I’m gonna
be showing you guys how to boot up
through the BIOS and change that so our
PC just restarted just keep clicking delete on your keyboard alright we booted up to our BIOS all we’re gonna be
doing is going right here ai Tweaker and
then where it says auto we’re gonna
change that to XMP 1 we’re gonna be
clicking yes it’s not gonna mess with
our CPU settings ok automatically change it to 3000 megahertz now when we go over
here to exit we’re gonna click Save
Changes in reset it’s going to tell us
the changes we made so changed it from
auto to 3000 megahertz and we’re just
gonna click OK and the system
boot up and we’re done all right guys
we’re playing Rainbow six siege now
graphics settings preset is on ultra our
displays that 1440p very gonna wish me
