    I'm starting to think Carey does not like that particular case.

  2. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Thanks you help me out I wish to open a pc repair shop

  3. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    I have watched hours of your content now. I'm working on my first build and I'm really excited about it. I feel like after watching you, I can confidently follow along with your videos and get it put together correctly. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge!

  4. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Another excellent video. Much appreciated!

  5. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    that is a great looking Build Carey.

    "lets build something that looks cool, disregarding fucntionality completely"- this case maker

  7. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    I'd be really pissed off too. I had bad computer setups to deal with but this is terrible (and stupid).

  8. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    You're cool man.

    Ive been repairing my own pc ever since i got my first one.

    I love PCs.

    I wish i could have a job repairing them but alas there is no opportunity for me in this country.

  9. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    thank you for your care all ways I will think of your words is that I have confdent

  10. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

  13. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    15:25 haha they didnt heed your advice, and came back to you for repairs… Im guessing that was a cash cow for you

  14. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Hey Carey, I'm not sure but I get the impression you don't like that case lol

  15. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    You are a master at this. But watching Windows eat itself toward the end reminds me why I tend to prefer Linux as my primary OS. I respect Windows as a gaming OS, but I find Windows is far less forgiving of hardware changes than Linux.

    For example, if I so much as put a USB mouse on another port, there's a good chance Windows will decide it has to reinstall the driver. Why does Windows handle hardware changes this way? Linux rarely goes through that. Just loads the driver and tells it what the device is and where.

    Another example I found: Install Windows with the BIOS set to running the SATA controller in one mode, either IDE legacy or AHCI mode, then change over to the other mode after. Windows will almost guaranteed BSOD as soon as it loads. Linux will simply load the correct drive from initramfs and boot without caring there was a configuration change.

    I also don't like how picky Windows gets in installation. I've had to physically disconnect disks or change to IDE mode and change boot order to get Windows to install where I want it to because it decides where I put it isn't a "system" disk. It's the 2010s, even traditional, non-UEFI BIOS doesn't care that much about which disk or partition the OS is in, but Windows still acts like it matters.

    Rant over, you're still awesome at this. I mostly wonder how often you get customers who request a build with Linux or a dual boot instead of just Windows.

  16. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    The mini-ITX version is WAY better designed than the micro atx one. I used it on my second build for a challenge and I haven't ran into any case design related issues……

  17. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Good stuff .. Sarcasm at its best

  18. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    That case looks like it would SUCK to cable manage, something that I would absolutely hate.

  19. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Just comes to show the customer didn't know what they were doing….

  20. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    The frustration on your face…wow….I can feel it ….I just wanted to say I really enjoy your videos. Very educational and I appreciate them.

  21. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Great educational commentary. Thanks.

  22. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Great video, always good to walk through the process and figure the solution.

  23. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    That new case…. That's a corsair case right? Digital Storm also uses that case (with custom logos they put on and it's gray, not orange) and I have it sitting right next to me!

  24. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    vie never had a single issue from asus boards only gigabyte ones in my experience, I personally won't even look at gigabyte anymore not even for graphics cards

  25. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    LMAO. WTF were they thinking? That thing is a hot mess. I really hope it was a young customer(like <16) considering they were so blinded by aesthetics that they totally disregarded functionality.

  26. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Great Video. These kind of problems were always the worst and after more than enough Intel boards, I actually would go right to the CPU board pins 1st < #1 most common gamer build problem on the Intel platforms is bent CPU socket pins >, AMD is much more user and newb friendly when it comes to cpu installation.

    Well done and a great way for a new owner/repair to follow the steps.

  27. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    I had a weird one once where the PC would boot from cold, stay in Windows for a few minutes then bluescreen. Reboot and it would be fine for the rest of the day. Normally odd issues like that point to a PSU or memory issue. Tested the memory over a couple of days (had to recreate the cold boot. Could only recreate it after the PC had been off for hours) and it turned out to be one of the memory sticks. Replaced the RAM stick, been fine ever since.

  28. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    This case reminds me of a silverstone case I worked in a few weeks ago. It was built by a known good name builder, but the owner did a video card upgrade them self and left screws missing and rattling around in the case. The power supply also only had one set of sata cables which was sad because it was a $2000-3000 computer. It was a small form factor and it was just awful to work in. A few months later they did an ssd upgrade on their own and they fried the drive because the case made it so the Sata power cable wouldn't reach the drive enough to be connected correctly.

  29. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Nice video..yeh what a nightmare PC case, I thought you might take it outside and back your truck over it! I love corsair cases, they are so user friendly. Thanks for showing the logical procedure of diagnostic and repair. I watch all your videos Carey, they are the best on youtube! I've learned so much watching them all.

  30. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Carey is a brilliant dude.

  31. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Great video. I'm glad you left in the part where you're checking the monitor for signal not realizing the cable became unplugged. I am sure I've done that a few times. It's also great hearing you talk about computer repair and what you don't wanna work on. It reminds me of all the fun times I had in the business. Great stuff!

  32. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Excellent.  Very informative and entertaining.  Thanks

  33. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    this was really a masterwork

  34. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Your videos are awesome. Always very informative. Your How to build videos helped me learn how to build my own system over 3 years ago keep it up as always!!!

  35. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    The guy who built this definitely goofed up. They probably put the CPU in last while the motherboard was already in the case.

  36. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    I built my first gaming pc yesterday thanks to your videos. Nice job.

  37. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    You always make me laugh. keep up the great vids and i am sure you have had some videos like these on YouTube back om the old YouTube of 2009

  38. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    very very good

  39. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    As a novice I started out with a ATX build along with heavy research time for parts. As I began to do more builds for myself and family, I didn't have to do much research, thus saving me time.

  40. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Its funny how much of a pain this case is, originally the design was for Mini ITX but (very experienced) people began modifying it heavily to put mATX in there and Bitfenix copied the modified design to sell as their own. This sort of thing was never really meant for a novice.

  41. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Such an awesome video Carey. I really enjoyed watching you work through the analysis of the problem (even though it was NOT fun for you, so thank you for that) and I found it extremely informative; I've always loved your videos… thank you sir.

  42. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    The itx version of this case is awesome. I love it.

  43. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Great job Carey, I liked the parts about self employment and picking your battles. Diagnostic videos are very interesting to watch.

  44. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Those crappy Bit Fenix cases cost like $140 too!

  45. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Very nice video, keep up the good work.

  46. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    that"s how i exactly diagnosed computers here in the philippines.. the way you did

  47. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Women care more about aesthetics and beauty far more than men. Are you familiar with the term gas lighting?

  48. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    That is a very interesting video Carey. I really like your videos plus the NewEgg ones too. I have learned a lot watching you on both channels. I don't think I know even 10% of what I need to know. LOL. But I find it really interesting and I am learning a bit each time I watch these. These are really valuable videos for the average person to learn some things. I will subscribe and see if I can learn some more. Keep up the great work. I do want to say I really like how you describe things along the way. Both on your channel and also on NewEgg. Because not everybody is as technical as you.

  49. February 3, 2017 at 11:52 pm —

    Nice work. I'm a tech too, and anticipated your every move. You're the real deal, and not a poser or a hardware seller like so many youtube "techs" are.

    I did catch a goof, at 13:35, you forgot to plug in the monitor after you reseated the video card the first time. In the end it didn't matter, and you did have the monitor plugged in the spare video card.

    It sure is nice to chase a ghost like this and then uncover the obvious defect like this. It's not always this easy, and you got my respect when you used all of the customer's other parts to fire up the new motherboard. That's how it's done by a pro. We even have the same cranky attitude regarding crummy cases and people asking for advice and ignoring it.

    Again, that's some top quality troubleshooting and professional evaluation. Kudos.
