For my passion project this term i have decided to build a PC. The technology’s that are going into this project include:
- Memory (RAM)
- Graphics processing unit (GPU)
- Storage ( SSD)
- Power supply unit
- System cooling
- Operating system
My Project is targeted at people who are interested in PC’S/gaming or are looking into building there own PC. I’m looking forward to working on this with my dad and challenging myself to make it the best it can be.
What have you achieved so far?
So far i have researched and bought parts so now i just have to put it together
What type of learning have you done to up skill yourself?
At first i thought it was just about putting the parts together but i realised its a lot more than that. You have to be very careful with some parts and it requires a lot more wires than i thought.
What successes or challenges have you experienced so far?
So far i have run into a problem with getting the parts. Some of the parts i needed were not in the store where i was getting all the parts from and it would take to long to order them so i had to compromise with different parts.
What is the next step for you?
The next step for me is getting to actually build the PC because right now i only have the parts.
Insert an image that shows evidence of your process so far
Did you achieve what you originally set out to do?
I first set out to build a PC and i ended up finishing the PC with photos and videos and it also turned first try which was what i was originally setting out for
What successes or challenges did you experience toward the end of your project?
One of my challenges was trying to problem solve somethings when i’m stuck with the PC and one of my success was getting the CPU in the motherboard without it breaking.
How did you overcome the challenges?
I over came my challenges by going back before i came across the problem and working through the problem.
How can you extend your learning if you were to continue with this project?
I could extend my learning by going back and making the wires inside neater and i could be neater with the LED
Insert any images you have of you producing your project.
