    So, building this PC will be a fun project with the missus. We talk about our personal interests with each other so I understand way too much about skincare and make-up and she knows about PCs, like identifying parts and even some very technical PC hardware stuff, like case airflow, or identifying that RAM is running in single-channel.

    Still, she's quite a bit hit-or-miss. Things she told me yesterday while talking about the build process and showing her the motherboard:
    • Thermal paste is used between the CPU and the motherboard to "stick them together"
    • SATA cables are used to connect the motherboard to the GPU
    • The chipset shroud is where you put storage in.
    Anyone wants a pay-per-view of us building this PC? :D

    If she's interested in getting hands on , give her your old PC parts / partial build that remains , dismantle it in front of her and let her rebuild it and you can supervise ??
    Or let her see the board in hand and have her figure out what goes where in what ports and slots.

    How many RP's can you pay us ? ;)

    Today is time to part ways. Disks and GPU out, RAM re-fitted (by the missus).

    I'm desktopless until next week.
