Hi guys do you know how to remove the metal thing in the MSI MS-6681 that covers half the unit? I cant seem to find a way on how to remove it and I cant access the other parts of the motherboard, I searched online but I find nothing because this model is so old.

I want to be like Anthony when I grow up albeit a tad bit more done with everyone's shit. I may be turning 30 soon, but I think it's important to have heroes no matter how old you are. Edit: I want UV style RGB stuff so I can look at myself in shame after using a VR headset for its intended purposes.

Really like the intelligent dry wit that Anthony expresses. Never patronising and always knowledgable. His voice has to be the most readable and easy on the ear bar none. Brilliant.

This video is great! I have build many systems before, but its been a while. This guide just puts my mind at rest. Super amped to build. Was able to get a Ryzen 9 5900X & RTX 3090. Also got G-Skill Trident Z Royal memory, good god these things look amazing. Only waiting for case fans, so build should be done in about a week, hype! Great video Anthony!

"We got the absolute most expensive RGB components we could find so that we could tell you that it isn't worth it" Well duh, but most people only spend like $30 on their gaming computers RGB and it looks fine.
Sander van Woerkom-Angenent
After all this time (? "Always") I still don't really like RGB, not in the most common ways you see it. I mean, most of the time it's rainbow unicorn puke through every component and peripheral, and in some cases people just pick a particular accent color. The only way I would use RGB is through a functional approach. Waterblock color on the cpu changing to express how hot it runs. Having keys on my keyboard light up a certain way to indicate an action or whatever (blinking key when a cooldown has finished or something, does this exist yet?), or the Ambilight approach and having your case (or these ridiculous RGB towers from the video) light up in correspondence to the monitor content.
Sander van Woerkom-Angenent

I have been watching a lot of pc videos because I am trying to buy a non gaming pc and get the most bang for my buck. But it seems like everything is gaming only. Should I get prebuilt? Refurbished? Any advice would be appreciated. Where do I go (Vegas)? Looking for 16 ram 1 tb hdd and maybe 256 ssd for os . Just basic gpu and cpu around an i5 or i7 equivalent. Windows 10 pro or equivalent. Any advice? What’s the best to buy with these specs. Who can I trust to build for me? Also wouldn’t mind something different in the case with maybe a little RGB I’m trying to stay under $1000. Just trying to stay away from the standard Dell type case look.
