Ever wondered how your pre-built PC gets put together? You might envision a Terminator-esque mass of metal and tubing falling off a production line. But yesterday, UK builder PC Specialist posted a peek behind the veil of their production facility to the PCMR subreddit. It’s like Willy Wonka’s Silicon Factory in there.
You’re going to need a great panel to make the most of your PC, so check out our guide to the best gaming monitors around.
This facility and the engineering team behind it shows a team of mere humans are capable of pumping out up to 4,000 bespoke PC builds every week.
Catering for the individual requirements of each customer, 80+ staff are squirrelled away in a warehouse. Technicians work on the various builds in long production lines and create the gaming monsters we all know and love.
For them, a rig build will take five to seven days on average from order time to be at your doorstep, with premium delivery getting PCs to the customer in just three days. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the most popular PC builds right now still tend to house Intel’s Core i7 and Core i5 processors with Nvidia graphics cards (mostly GTX 1060 and up) being the main choice of pixel pusher.
So there we have it, that’s how your gaming machine comes together and you can check it out in a little more detail in the full video below. Anyone else feeling a little bit of job envy?
