    Lol, now I feel guilty. But if you want, I, and probably the rest of the forum, can help you pick parts if you want. But there's one rule you mustn't forget: be sure to ground yourself, or use a anti-static wrist strap to connect to your case. People panic way too much over this whole ''ESD''-event, but just try to stay on the safe side. I've honestly never had a failed PC because of static electricity, and on my first PC build I didn't do any of the above mentioned methods to prevent it. The chance it very minimal, but you get what I mean if I say you try to stay on the safe side when building an expensive machine.

    I personally always grab the heater before and after installing each component. There's no need to hold it when building, as you will lose your charge when touching it for a few seconds.

    This is Sonic 4 being emulated in Dolphin on my PC, with Fraps running in the background to record the footage. Seriously, I see no slowdowns whatsoever. And if the video looks kinda sloppy and laggy, that's because YouTube does not support 60fps videos, so it was cut down to 30fps. The game runs at 60fps, so 30fps really ruins the smoothness, but what the heck.




    Here's a video of Sonic Colours, as well. It has some slowdowns in menus, but it plays perfectly in-game.

    I failed so badly. I was quite surprised with the CPU reaching 58C on full-load, and I simply wasn't happy with it. I was playing some Dolphin yesterday. and then I heard a quick clicking noise. I thought it'd be something outside, but then the system speaker (the one you hear when you boot up your PC) started beeping like a crazy ****. So I looked through the window, and I saw that a push-pin was loose. I already feared that i hadn't installed it properly, and it was true. I didn't completely re-build my PC. I only re-did most of the cables that were floating around, and after all of the cables were behind the chassis, I gave it a go to finally install the cooler properly. I held on to the case, pushed the pin like a beast (motherboard was screwed into the case tightly) and then I finally heard the plastic cracking where the pin had to go through. Man, hearing that noise was such a good experience, lol. Booted up my PC, did a render of 20 minutes, and the highest temp it has reached was 50C.
