All The Tools You Need For Building A Computer From Scratch

Building your own PC is a fun, rewarding experience, but after you acquire all the parts you need, you still need the right tools to put everything together. Linus at NCIX Tech Tips runs through the most important tools.

In the above 6-minute video, Linus shows you everything you'll need for the project, from a 10-inch long Phillips head screwdriver with a magnetic tip for accessing those hard-to-reach screws in your tower, and zip-ties so you can manage your cabling and maximise air flow. Once you know what tools you require, you can get started on building your super-powered machine.

    Well you don't actually need the zip ties, but they certainly are useful

    The screwdriver on the other hand is a must, and the magnetic tip is super handy.

    I dont know why you need a six minute video to say you need a screwdriver though........

    Even better, Leatherman Wave. Has everything I need. Pliers are great for jumpers (or the wired versions for the front panel) in awkward places.
