Science Studio : Hey, Capital One! If you wanna learn how to build a computer *for real,* here's my email:

The Eastside Show : he forgot to tell his listeners to just download more RAM incase they run out.

Ryan Brown : How the Verge builds computers: 1. Goes to 2. buys MacBook Pro 3. Rates 5 stars.

Skemooo : dint he say to put Thermal paste on the socket?

Star Wars Chronicler : 'They made a few generalizations' Yeah, like that people are actually going to buy Battlefield 5.

Slimword : It was such an embarrassment that they took it down. Did no one from IT ever see this before it went live? Did no one stop him? Maybe IT saw this and was like "Yeah, let's not say anything and watch it crash and burn." I like that idea and I'm sticking with it.

Bitwit : Amazing job, Greg! Lyle will be following in your footsteps soon. :)

Gaming Life : that pc is one overclock away from being a bomb

RingQuest 1986 : "Next, find an old Indian arrow head to use as a screwdriver..."

ᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚᅚ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) : At least they met their diversity quota.

Kjetil Korsveien : They blamed the critics for being racist hence admitting this guy was chosen to do the video because he was the right skin color, not because of his expertise. This is what socialism (and racism) looks like in practice. I don't care what experts look like, only if they are good. The Verge do categorize people by their skin color, the pure definition of racism. Now apply that to all parts of society and watch everything fall apart.

Darius Andrey : We should report the video as being misleading

Sebastian Mustermann : powersupply was mounted with the fan directly to the back of the mainboard-tray... *heavy breathing*

SantaMuerte livE : Lol. They deleted the video. 😂😂😂😂😂



Mike T : Only thing The Verge knows about building computers is how to use a dongle for their MacBook.

Kurt Barryman : Diversity hires are just that.

Chris Season : i'm entirely convinced it's a joke. the 'anti-static bracelet' really seals it for me

Wotan will awake : The Verge used the race card, to justify in this case a black man doing something stupid is EVEN WORSE than the video.

Gub : It looks like he was using the samsung quantum dot monitor that's 144hz and he locked league at 120 fps. Oof

Alex Swiatkiwsky : I feel bad for the young man. This should be called out though so other people DONT follow what he does!

Zagrusz Ventus : 7:08 we dont mix difreant type of thermal paste because we dont know how the two cemicals react with ech other and the metal surface

Skyline H : Walmart is still better than The Verge.

Clunk 42 : It can play all of the newest titles. It can run old games at 100s of frames per second. It can explode in a fireball because the power supply will overheat due to the fan being the wrong direction.

Most Deadest Pool of em All. : *Empties bag of PC. parts on the ground. that should do it, now lets google porn.

Eiszapfen der wütenden Winde : It was just pathetic. From beginning to end. My freaking 15 year old nephew did a better job. The only thing i did, was supervising him. By asking questions. I did not even touch his build. He was surprised how easy it was. And even more surprised, how easy it is to download, copy and install Windows via USB drive. Not only did he feel pride and accomplishment. He also learned something. The guys from Anal Verge, learned nothing! They even shut down any kind of feedback, negative and positive alike. This is IGNorance of the highest caliber!

Fluffy Hedgehog : i knew the verge basically is an apple Fanpage … but i never expected they are THIS clueless. this was beyond bad, my 92 year old grandmother could build a pc better than that. half of what he did was actually detremental to performance, stability and/or safety.

Animentral : Usually, you should insert the cpu on the motherboard before putting the motherboard in the case. It's easier that way.

kityhawk2000 : When I first built a PC I looked up videos on how to put it together. I found a video that used my exact case and for the most part it was fairly good. Thing is when it came to installing the PSU the guy positioned so the intake fan faced upward inside the case. But I could clearly see that the case had a fan slot cut into the floor with an air filter over it. I was like why would you not use that slot so the fan can draw in cool air from outside the case instead of hot air from inside. So I just ignored him and did it that way. At some point common sense has to supersede what someone tells you.

ProtoMario : LMAO that cable management is total trash.

Darcy Cardinal : "...and go ahead and apply more thermal paste cause Corsair doesn't know what they're doing."

RickOShay : The Verge is an apple farm with lots of anti MS sheep wandering around going Baaaaa. They're generally clueless when it comes to anything marginally technical. Often just regurgitating 'misinformation' which they received via other apple syndicated sites.

Aa Kk : anyone else notice that, of the 4 tools he said you would need (after the "table") he only used 1? thermal paste spreader? obviously not... allen wrench? nope... "tweezers"? lol... defintiely not... but we do see him use the swiss army knife... and the table...

Space In A Space : I would love to see these fools try to assemble a car!

davetechme : Poor guy. Sounds like he was thown into a project way over his head. Still, a majority of his mistakes could have been easily corrected with a day or two of research which it looks like he either didn't do or he chose to ignore.

N N : Verge made 1.2 phantom accounts to downvote this video.

Owl : Mistakes made: - Brings swiss army knife, but uses screwdriver anyway - Calls cable ties a tweezer - 'Antistatic' wristband - Installs mobo into case before cpu - Installs ram wrongly - Says it doesn't matter which slot for gpu - Installs cpu cooler before mobo - Forgets to install cpu cooler backplate - Messes up cpu installation by putting the plastic installation helper thing underneath the cpu clamp - Splooges thermal paste around the outside of the cpu, missing the centre - Heatsink had thermal paste pad on it already... - Doesn't put fans on cpu radiator - Uses wrong screws (the fan screws) for radiator installation - Plugs in all cables into modular psu, even though he only needs about 3 of them - Says psu needs to be installed on the damping pads for electrical isolation - Installs psu so that fan is blowing into back plate of mobo - Does zero cable management... he forgot to use his 'tweezers'. - Plays league against bots and is loosing.

Dark Dubbs : The video is now deleted. :D and they blame it on racism.

Speedy_Diamonds : soooo gamers DON’T need RAM. got it.

Barteg : Really reminds me of "Lyle" building a computer on Bitwit. BUT THAT WAS ACTUALLY ON PURPOSE Oh god. Verge. No. Stop.

Trash : Pf I can get 1000+ fps when playing osu

ACE112ACE112 : 8:16 report yasuo main. Forgot to mention that he is inting because he has no items.

robustVacancy : ofc he mains yasuo.

matthew elsiray : And then once your on the internet if you want to supercharge your PC just download more ram and you'll be good to go

Sono2 : He's wearing an anti static wristband without having it grounded to anthing. That's like vacuming the floor without plugging it into the wall.

Kaos Warrior : The Verge is just like Buzzfeed isn't it? Which is worse than IGN(at least we know they get played to say bs)! Sad, funny, infuriating, etc. it's a rollercoaster of emotions. I had more knowledge in building and maintaining PCs when I was 13(90s when PC stuff was "complicated") then this cringe lord at The Verge will ever have! I don't like being violent, but my inner animal was telling me to punch his face!

Matthew Pavkovich : Shaty build for a shaty game of bf5

Filiplayz : fac my power supply is touching my case!!!!

YourLocalPikachu : I just downloaded my computer off the outernet
