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

ZLATENDAB : that pc is one overclock away from being a bomb

Awaiting Input : 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.

Techvania : Verge/Vox is striking channels with this video. Stay sharp, bro.

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

Erik Skallevold : They deactivated comments and the like to dislike ratio. Top class journalism here folks

kylefer : Man that video is a prime example of what happens when people lie on their resume.

Lord Of Spriggan : "Definitely not gonna hold up for battlefield 5", Plays league of legends on a $2000 pc and still loses to a bot

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.

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.


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

mighty slime : Are they making a bomb

YourLocalPikachu : I just downloaded my computer off the outernet

Darius Andrey : We should report the video as being misleading

Vagabond Soul : How to build a crow's nest with $2000 worth of computer parts!

KuraMad2000 : Man I had completely forgotten about this verge video........ until today......... *waves at barbara streisand*

Adam : I feel like The Verge found the guy with glasses and assumed he knew what he was doing, and he was hyped to get to do it, so he just bsed his way through it...

Isaac Kvasager : I love that these videos were basically dead but are now showing up in my feed again because Vox was stupid enough to issue copyright strikes....thereby making them popular again. God damn morons.

ItsPunjjap : I feel bad for this guy. He obviously knows nothing about building pc’s and it seems like they gave him 5 min to study for a final!

Tiparium : Anyone notice the CPU cooler is missing a screw?

holdmybeard : Claims his new build will run Battlefield V. Tests it with League of Legends.

Vandoeun Long : Vergegate has started. War on fair use.

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

TheBlockyGuy MCTF : Im literally 13 and I built a computer better than verge and I built it *ALONE*

KucheKlizma : Modern PC cases and components come with foolproof step by step manuals... doing it so badly is goddamn miraculous.

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

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

onee : When you let the intern do your job.

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

Tupolev Tu-95 : Inb4 Vox Media takes this video down by copyright strike

Siddhant jain : you should keep an eye on this video. Vox is copyright striking Criticism videos

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

Game Tech : What's up with the Verge 'NOT' Liking Dual channel memory!? No wonder why Wal-Mart Pc's don't performe properly.

GuruR97 : Stefan Etienne is a classic example of a tech journalist that truly knows nothing about what he's talking about. Quite the dilettante that somehow weaseled his way into this job. Also refuses to acknowledge his mistakes. We were all just "haters" and "angry nerds." Also bragged about how his PC is superior to everyone else's right after saying that.

ccrazool : "Remember to buy Battlefield V, everybody!" --Capital One

Cam Mewton : he forgot to overclock his pc by adding 2 minutes to system time

Mamopy : Bitwit's how to not build a PC is still better than their build

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

il.piraat.mtb : He’s not fighting static, he’s fighting cancer! -Lyle

satchice9 : Affirmative action, in action! or, knowing just enough to be dangerous.

Max Cool : lol i was building pc's at 15 and mine looked better

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

Callum Sweeney : He didn't even mention that RGB fans increases performance by 200% 🤦‍♂️

Jose Alfonso Chavez : Be careful! Kyle from Bitwit got copystriked for critizizing the verge's video!

FooKinAye : watch out! copyright strike incoming like reviewtechusa

TheSaintST1 : Oh my god, man... I didn't realise it was this bad. This guy knew NOTHING....

Unsorted Gaming : They disabled They should thank those people who called them out and correct it with a new video instead.
