CUSTOM PC – Issue 196 January 2020
Despite being 42 years old and having enough white D body hair to start worrying that I’m turning into the Wampa from The Empire Strikes Back, managing excitement is still a problem for me when it comes to PC building. I’m a bit like a five-year-old ripping open a chocolate wrapper — I want my new gear up and running now—I don’t want to have to spend days setting it up properly first.
However, taking your time makes the difference between having a neat and tidy build, and a box full of messy wires, as we show you in our masterclass on P-76. It means you don’t block your case’s airflow, and that you can easily add upgrades in the future. I’ve written before about how much I love the process of tidying cables when I actually put my mind to it, and I heartily recommend that you do the same— allow for some proper planning time when assembling your PC build.
Knowing where to plug in the various plugs and components is an important part of the PC building equation, but there’s no substitute for taking a couple of hours looking at all the cables with your CPU cooler and power supply, checking them with the sockets and headers on your motherboard, and planning how you’re going to route them. Once you know that all your core gear works, clear your work area, and really think about every single cable and where it’s going to go.
Once you’ve done that, you also need to think about the logistics of connecting and routing which parts and when to do it. For example, if you’re installing an all-in-one liquid cooler in the roof, it will block access to the top cable-routing holes, so you’ll need to route any cables through those holes before you fit the radiator.
Sometimes installation involves careful coordination, while you thread cables through holes with one hand, and hold your radiator out of the way with the other. In most cases, it involves having to carefully work out the order in which to fit some of your components. Plan it all out step by step, place by place, and you should be able to construct a smart PC with minimal swearing and cut fingers in the process.
Are you indecisive about going digital? Don’t you have enough reasons to be persuaded? Whether you like it or not, the world is turning digital. Nowadays, it isn’t easy to envision a single day without digital connectivity. We all rely on our mobile gadgets in every domain, whether health, travel, pleasure, or work.
Meanwhile, the publishing sector is no different from any other. Realizing that digital is no longer a passing novelty, more publications are becoming digital or incorporating digital material into their business plans, such as digital magazines or PDF magazines.
Now you’ve become familiar with the importance of going digital, let’s move forward to help you decide further about whether you should download online magazines.
Easy To Access
The fact that we spend so much of our time online is why digital publications are chosen. Our reading habits include numerous usage of internet information at all hours of the day and night. Digital publications make it easier for us to keep our favorite pieces, share them, form communities, and discuss them online.
Purchasing, reading, and downloading online magazines is, without question, a quick and simple process. From the conveniences of our own homes, we may instantaneously purchase the digital edition of our choosing. It may be viewed and read at any time and location, such as when traveling, during a lunch break, or while waiting in line at a coffee shop. Rather than dealing with multiple books, you can obtain information instantly at your fingertips.
A digital magazine will be available worldwide once it is released. By sharing the story and thoughts, an author can reach a global audience in no time. Geographical boundaries are thus no longer an impediment. Furthermore, readers may share digital magazines with friends and family, increasing the publication’s user base.
A digital publication has an indefinite lifespan and stays unchanged even after years of use. Printed periodicals, on the other hand, degrade with each passing year. There is also the possibility of the print becoming lighter, the paper quality deteriorating, and other such difficulties.
Digital magazines give a better user experience than printed editions since they are more engaging. In addition to highly engaging photos, music, and video, one may peak viewers’ attention by displaying captivating 360-degree views, pop-ups, weblinks, and various other interactive components.
An author can increase user engagement by enabling two-way communication via push notifications and feedback forms.
A PDF reader is required.
To view electronic magazines and other digital periodicals, you’ll need a pdf reader software package. You may use it to read and arrange digital publications in a more efficient and orderly manner.
Installing the program first is the best approach to utilizing a pdf reader. It’s as simple as opening the pdf reader after the installation is complete. If you have a busy schedule and don’t want to connect to the internet whenever you want to view a pdf, you may also use a pdf reader offline.
