What I see is new PC builders tend to have better luck with

The Intel systems tend to be less traumatic for new PC builders. AMD systems while costing a little less seem to find the new builder finding the most interesting issues.

Let's sum it all up to:

1. Don't create a new system that's never been build before. Copy someone.
2. Don't rush the building of the system. Put on the antistatic strap and take your time.
3. Don't overtax the power supplies.
4. Heat sink compound is never optional.

Good hunting,
Bob
