Event details

So I have been talking about this since 2017 (shity joke but i laughed at it anyway) and I finally have all the parts and the time to build my computer. As I talked about in earlier threads with regards to this topic, I will be streaming the entire process. While I plan to stop once Windows is installing, I expect the actual build portion to take a few hours. But seeing as I have a history of making small things take entire days, I have put the entire day aside to build this thing. I will be in the TS when I first start but I do not plan to be on it for the entire duration.
 
Also something that I figured I would do during this is Slouchy's Story Time. There has been quite a few in jokes in FK since its birth and stories that many are not aware of the origins. So something to make it seem like I am not a complete idiot during this build stream I will attempt to answer any questions that people have to such stories or jokes. A small sample of such stories are:
  • How I almost got eaten by a grizzly
  • How FK actual came to be
  • The Leslie Memorial

While I am sure there are plenty of stories I may not know their origins, hopefully I can find someone that does. The reason for this event/stream is that I have never built a computer from scratch before so I need the internet to tell me how not to waste my time and money. And with the helpful advice I am sure you will all give me, I might as well return the favor.

 

For those that are interested, here is a part list of what my computer will be constructed out of: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/7skHcc

If you already bought the Windows license it's irrelevant, but be aware that the OEM license is cheaper because it's not transferable to another PC - and per Microsoft PC is basically motherboard. So if you even change motherboard for anyreason there is a good chance you'll have trouble activating Windows. FPP license is tied to your account and can be transferred.

If it was just another guy building a PC it would be boring and even that I don't know Slouchy that much, the extra content and the FK branding makes it entirely different story.

No but there is a good chance you will see a drunk roommate

You almost lost me with the no-nudity, but I am quite the sucker for drunken tom-foolery. Why don't we let the drunk roommate try and install the CPU or put him on wire organization?

Dude I watched him build his comp last month.... I am still amazed he only punched 3 holes into his wall.

I know youve probably made up your mind but pairing a 1080ti with a amd processor is bound to start bottle necking on the weaker Cpu cores.

The purpose of this build is to get me the basics. I plan on upgrading the cpu later on and since it fit into my budget I went iwth the 1080ti to piss off a few of my friends

First of all a huge thanks to those that helped me through the stream. I would have been in some deep shit if it wasn't for those who were literally walking me through each step. Now saying that I wish I could thank each of you individually but my face was in a case for the majority and the other was spent screaming at fans. That being said I am happy to say I was able to have everything in working order and am actually writing this up on the tower! Everything is working fantastically and I may even be able to partake in tomorrows (or the 14th depending on what time zone you are in) main missions!

Again thank you so much for those that put up with my shit. Can't explain how much I owe you guys.
