    Recently someone was told “even the newest hp and dells aren’t good enough to play games” the person has an RX580 sitting on a shelf, and I was going to set up a Dell with a second gen I7 and a 750w power supply to put the 580 in, not the fastest option, but plenty good enough for gaming. Now that cards still sitting on a shelf, and they’re waiting until they can spend probably $1000 on a new pc, which they will then need a new GPU anyway to make that cost worth it.

  • ChrisRs

    The pc didn't break because it was hooked up and grounded tho, wasn't it? I would have tried with the components outside of the case and ungrounded, idk


    i would love that pc

    The myth for washing things in the dishwasher was not components. It was for Keyboards.

    Already tested the dishwasher one out about 10 years ago I can confirm it works. You only gave it one day to dry off and I'm sure you didn't run a fan or put rice on it, I did the same in my keyboard razor black widow nice and clean now and works perfectly fine. Secret is drying it properly.

    You guys should have let it dry longer, it definitely would have worked. As long as you let them dry and nothing is physically bent or broken from being washed or whatever happened it will work

    I wash motherboards all the time even in the washer machine with detergint . Ur motherboard died from having water inside the plastic u forgot to take off those are coverings Also alot of water and the cmos battery tottaly fucked up ur motherboards internal chip

  • Djandr

    I dont know about putting an entire motherboard into a dishwasher, but you *can* wash computer parts with water. It isn't the water that hurts computer parts, its the minerals in the water. If you take the minerals out via machines meant to do so (and i mean all the minerals. They're pricey machines but they work) you can soak particularly dirty computer parts and then clean the water off via drying it 100% or solution safe for computers.

    Idk man, Austin wastes too much of time rather than giving more info.. I guess the community is doing the same. Same with linus,they talk with people behind the camera and the same kinda editing and all

    I wouldn't wash the motherboard, but say something like a keyboard that actually gets soil on it would be smart.

  • Skylancer727

    You make fun of it, but Der8auer openly shows himself throwing motherboards and GPUs in the dishwasher after world record runs to get rid of the vaseline.

    That’s what happens when you use TikTok for advice on how to build a PC (or any other mechanical or electrical device) instead of Austin/ GN / Linus / JTC and so on. It’s the same in other fields where people take horse meds to kill / increase immunity against CV-19. 🦖🦖🦖

  • G-Tech

    I feel trolled. Are you expecting viewers to have not watched the Linus videos doing the same thing? Those were very thorough, and I feel like you would have known that. Like I feel like the entire video Austin is trying so very hard to not bring up this has all been done before. Who do you think watches these videos? Makes for dull content.

    Did you use soap in the dishwasher? I'm guessing that that could get in and eat away at some if the connections. Might be fine if you just washed it under a tap maybe

    I mean, if you move the magnet back and forth over one one area fast enough, that will preak it, cus you would be inducing a curent into the pc, a current not supposed to be there

    I took a Swifter cloth to my motherboard (while the computer was turned off and power cord disconnected from the power supply) to clean the dust off of it many moons ago and that killed my PC.

    Stun Gun VS PC reminds me of Electro-boom and Linus Tech Tips using some crazy electric gun

  • McCool117

    Why is Austin testing if static will damage pc components, while it's completely together? The static argument is used *while* the PC is being built, not after it's built, a running system is already grounded with a power supply that's designed to protect it. He should've shocked a part that was uninstalled, and then tried to use it in the system.

  • IRON V8

    I once washed a motherboard in the sink with warm water and dishwasher liquid and then placed it in the oven at 100c to dry it off and it worked without any issues.

  • IRON V8

    You could probably cool down your CPU with only the heatsink without thermal paste.

  • Menagerie_OS

    Nothing against you guys, but the ironic thing about it is that most if not all 'gaming' pc myths come from big tech/pc channels and gets passed around to the viewers, who pass it down themselves and because of that, people very strongly believe it as fact. Its an incredibly sad thing to see when someone won't do their own research and just assume based on what someone else said. Again nothing against you guys.

    Washing components isnt that bad of an idea as long as you properly dry it ... I had to actually do this for a client that came to us with a REALLY bad dust/mud (I mean mud due to the high humidity of that town) and after disassembling the whole motherboard, washing it with soap, warm water and a gentle pass of a soft toothbrush, we got it clean as new. Left it drying on silica gel for around 3 or 4 days, then put everything back together with new thermal pads and everything was as good as new. PC worked like a charm for over a year after that.

    try shocking it while the pc is turned off. then turn it on. Thats how I killed my system last time about 5 years ago, I woke up from sleep from some very static sheets. Touched the Ram sticks, felt the shock, turned on my system and it fried my motherboard.

    It is much more harmful to use too little thermal paste than to use too much.

  • Crypto Tonight
    Crypto Tonight

    Only a day may not have been enough time to dry all the water especially any trapped in small spaces. you should have used a hairdryer or some kind of air to get most of the water off then allow it to dry for at least 3 days. Also you should have made sure that your dish washer didnt have a heated dryer function turned on since the extreme heat used to quickly dry dishes could have possibly re-flowed the solder or caused components to become destroyed.

  • Crypto Tonight
    Crypto Tonight

    roughly a grain of rice? I would not recommend using that little. of course you don't want to use enough to have it coming out of the sides when under pressure you still want to have enough to cover as much of the IHS as possible and a grain of rice isnt going to do it. you might get 20% covered using that little. you also dont want to use an X patter since that could cause air pockets to be trapped between the IHS and heat sink.

    Ive been building computers since the late 90's and have never used an anti static device and have never caused any damage to hardware from static discharges.

    Its because you didn't put the motherboard in rice that's why it didn't work. jk lol

  • ClarksCracked

    pov: you save $10 using ur toothpaste instead of thermal paste xD

    • xlolopip

      @ClarksCracked yeah as toothpaste can't cool the same as thermal paste and can start to overheat your cpu and then it can be damaged and potentially harm other components

    Physically magnets wont do anithing to electric components that doesn’t depend on magnetic fields to work( hard drives use them) so you wont do anything to acomputer with a magnet unless is sufficiently strong and if theres a delta(increase decrease) in the area where the magnet is affecting or a delta in speed. This will generate a current that can harm your pc

    have mixed rams in my old notebook and rock solid stable, no crashes etc. so i can debunk that, also one is 2gb the other 4gb, but that doesnt matter, but both are diff speeds and diff manufacturer, yet it works great, its maybe not ideal,b ut i have what i could find for a reasonable price, so im ok with the performance of that old laptop
