Top 10 things to not forget when dismantling the PC

To build a first PC by myself in my 20s, I’ve ruined a lot of things before. Here are the top 10 things that you should remember when removing the PC, based on your blood experience. Perhaps it cannot help you eliminate the risk completely, but at least you will be less worried.

Attach I / O Shield (FE)

Imagine you have assembled the entire PC, and when you plugged in the cord to turn on the machine, you discovered that you forgot the damn FE piece, how are you feeling now? I’m going to be profane too much. At this point, I will have to remove a bunch of cables, cards, and main to re-attach the FE. If anyone goes too hard on the wire, be careful to remove it, not kidding.

So, if you assemble the machine, assemble this piece first for yourself, then assemble it and do whatever you do. I am very obsessed with myself now, if I buy the main one, I will only buy the main ones with FE die.

Always catch sequenced screws for toughened glass

Most modern gaming cases are equipped with at least one glass to show the internal components. For brothers using cheap cases using mica panels, there is no need to worry, it is a bit “alum” but difficult to crack. For those who have a case of glass, they should be noted every time they are removed. Tighten the screw on the glass, then tighten just come, not pressing, not pressing.

When catching snails, you should also follow the following order:

First, attach the two screws together to secure the glass. Attach enough 4 screws. Start tightening the two screws cross each other, just stick enough to stop, not tightening. Tighten the remaining 2 screws. Accomplished. Disconnect when assembling components

Electronic components are sensitive to electric current, so when you unplug, you should at least disconnect the power. If you are more careful, unplug the screen signal wire. Even small currents can cause sparks, short circuits, and the like, to damage your components. So it’s best to make sure you disconnect the power before removing something from your PC. Although the possibility of an incident is quite rare, but still more careful.

You should also know that computer components can store electricity, even when the power is turned off. So after you turn off the power, press the power button one more time to let it drain. In many cases you will see the fan spinning a few more times. At this time, the electricity was completely turned off. I will remove the RAM and hard drive when I unplug it. When you have to unplug the whole unit, I will unplug the whole cord and press the power button for a few seconds before continuing.

Always have a snail container

I always do that, before removing the case, doing the work is sure I have to find some cups to hold the screws that I removed from the case. Don’t be subjective because you think fewer snails don’t need to be too careful.

Once the PC is removed, the brothers will be very busy and difficult to manage. Just a little negligence is that when reassembled, everything is missing. Losing snails on the main snail also for catching snatched in, but losing tempered snails for sniffing is a bit tired, it goes by the case.

Rotate the AMD module before removing

If Intel fans have to be careful about socket pins, AMD fans must pay attention to the CPU sticking to the heat sink. AMD CPU socket does not pin the CPU to the motherboard like Intel, only the pins of the CPU. There are many cases where the user unintentionally disengages the CPU and stick it out. Damaged so often it does not spoil but that feeling is not comfortable at all.

So when using AMD CPU, it is best to remove all the pins, you should turn it a little bit, just shake left, right to gradually let it glue loose, when certainly can be easily detached to be take it up.

Retain socket covers

Many brothers when installing the CPU then throw away the socket cover. Agree that if you have the CPU facing up, it will be useless but that doesn’t mean you should throw it away. Basically you have to keep this piece for the mainboard warranty.

I have a habit when assembling the machine is to keep all the boxes and papers and accessories attached. This cover, I will toss into the mainboard or CPU box is finished. In addition to the warranty, this cover is also quite useful in many other cases. For example, when you do not have a CPU to attach, take this piece to cover the socket for safety. An older main unit will be sold again if there are socket covers and full accessories.

Mount RAM to hear the “split”

The RAM slot has a general rule that when you push the RAM stick into its place, a small “click” will sound. A RAM bar has 2 heads and when each end hears a “click” sound, it gets into position.

If you do not pay attention to this, RAM that is loose, skewed is very dangerous. Lightweight, the machine does not up, and heavy RAM pins will burn, but burning RAM pins it always burn RAM slot on the main, so you just lost a RAM tree, just died a RAM slot. So remember to pay a little attention, brothers. But remember that just pushing has just pushed, pushing the very best way to create the main it’s broken, try to take it home.

Attach a new heat sink and remember to remove the shield

This may sound a bit unbelievably rare but it’s real brothers, and not so rare. Radiators usually have a shield on the face that takes heat. If you do not pay attention to remove the heat sink, it will become an insulation layer between the back of the CPU and the heat sink of the heat sink, hindering the heat dissipation performance significantly.

Brothers to buy the memory to pay attention to peel off this piece. Once the assembly is completed properly, and the CPU’s temperature is reached the ceiling level, it will take much effort to check out.

Keep the box, invoice

Many brothers are quite reckless, refusing to keep things like boxes and coupons. Just buy about assembling the machine and see that the machine is running smoothly and throw up all over. Some carriers and agents have warranty policies that require invoices, boxes or both to collate and apply the warranty policy. Once you lose it is considered as loss of warranty always, damaged components later on, you bear. The agency or firm that serves the service no longer has evidence to remove the phosphate.

In general, if you are not clear about all these warranties, how many things come with the product and keep it for yourself. Whatever happens, it’s easy to talk.

Do not insert the screw into the warranty sticker

Some PC components will have a sealed screw, typically a graphics card. Usually graphics card models will have 4 screws on the back to attach the contact surface of the heatsink to the GPU chip, one of the 4 screws will have a seal to prevent users from touching the hardware. Once you’ve screwed in these screws, don’t expect warranty.

Some of you might wonder if the card overheats? Then there will be a company to take care, just go to the warranty center and throw it is done. Once you’ve applied thermal paste, they’ve considered letting you run out of warranty without caring about it. Things like SSDs, HDDs, and so on, only touch on the screws with warranty stamps if they meet two conditions: The warranty has expired and you know what you are doing. If you are a worker, you probably don’t need to do anything.
