People in a position of power to inform others, should be accountable for misinformation they spread.

Putting the CPU in after everything else wow.
"RAM is in the correct slot" https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Dm_jnQXX0AEYWH_.jpg Sure it is.
I really need to learn cable management. I currently have a wire just resting on the cpu cooler https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/1883/8e1da8c9-e2c1-4e7a-892e-bc25e8392afd/image.png
Most new PSUs seem to have gone this route.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jciJ39djxC4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vmQOO4WLI4 what I learned from other people's comments. From science studio I learned the chief at verge said on twitter "tech youtubers are not journalists" last month. 10 mins in. From Bitwit, so much was wrong that you miss things on first look.
The video has been pulled down. From the written article: Editor’s note: An earlier version of this article included a video guide detailing similar steps on how to build a PC. Unfortunately, that video included a number of errors in the build process, and as a result we have removed it from this article. We have also updated this article to improve the order of the steps in the process.

"this just in: people are unable to criticize more than one thing at a time"
I think he meant he corrected some of the mistakes after shooting.
I mean that was probably shot right after the video. The guy should just shut up and be forgotten about, but this picture doesn't prove anything about him fixing it himself or not.
Here's a slightly more elaborative editorial statement: https://twitter.com/reckless/status/1041760692183945216 LOL @ 70% of the message implying it was all because of racists.
https://clips.twitch.tv/SassyCovertAnteaterBudStar "It's a better computer than what most of them have", he couldn't miss the point any more so than he is if he was blind, dismissing people as "nerds" rather than people legitimately complaining about the way he assembled a computer and how it's not a good thing to teach people who are new to building computers. Oh it's just a bunch of nerds lololo
If it's non conductive paste, you could lather that shit on all you want and have it get all over everything. The heat sink being screwed down pinching it will make it the same thickness between Heat spreader and heat pipes as it would be if you used a smaller amount. And you'll probably get better coverage with no chance of any pockets if you go overboard, too. But who the fuck wants to get thermal paste all around a socket or GPU dye
Ah yes the "im shit at my job so i will attempt to associate all critiicsm of me with racism" the verge is famous for. unfortunately not surprising.
If you've ever been on the receiving end of bandwagon, it's super easy to see that he probably has received a ton of racist hate - people will latch on to anything that they think will offend their target. It doesn't mean he's right, but that doesn't mean hate campaigns don't exist either.
"Some minor factual errors"
Leaked early access video of The Verge's new guide to applying thermal paste: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnyoJtv9Cx0
What kind of components will it be paired with? What resolution are you using? What kind of framerate are you expecting? The latter question is also sorta tricky considering the games aren't out yet
