by Alexander Le and Tu Van Pham Computer Project Our Components Putting It All Together All the Right Stuff RAM
Stands for Random Access Memory.
It is a volatile storage, meaning it is temporary. It only holds memory when computer is on. When the computer is off, the memory is gone.
Its purpose is to help hold current data so it can reach the processor faster.
Once memory in the RAM is filled up, some memory bits will be kicked out so there would be more memory space.
Our RAM has a total of 16 GB of memory Hard Drive
It is the main memory storage system in the computer.
It is used to store permanent data in the computer.
The hard drive takes a longer time to process than RAM.
Our hard drive has 2TB or terabytes so therefore it holds more memory.
1024 gigabytes is equivalent to 1 tera byte Motherboard
It is the called the central printed circuit board (PCB).
The most important role of the motherboard is that it connects the processor to the computer components.
If you were to compare the computer to the human body, the motherboard would be the nerves and the processor would be the brain. Gigabyte-Z77X-UD5H

It is the brain of the computer.
The CPU also known as processor, it carries out the instructions of a computer and the components' functions.
It is responsible for interpreting and executing the commands from the computer's hardware and software.
A processor can also be found in vehicles, toys, and phones. 4 Steps to process data
1. The processor fetches information.
2. Then it decodes the information.
3. After it decodes, then it organizes.
4. Finally, it executes the information. Optical Drives
It is also known as disk or DVD/CD drives.
It allows the use of removable media such as CDs and DVDs. Power Supply
(PSU) stands for Power Supply Unit.
It supplies power to all the components of the computer.
The power usually ranges from 200-1000 watts.
It converts alternate currents to direct currents, meaning it takes power from the wall or outlet and convert it onto the motherboard which takes low voltage.
Our power supply has 550 watts.
The motherboard uses 120 W.
The RAM uses 30 W.
The processor uses 140 W.
The case uses 3 W.
The hard drive uses 30 W.
The DVD drive uses 30 W. Features on the Motherboard
BIOS: BIOS stands for Basic Input/Output System. It is the motherboard's main system that checks if everything is working fine in the hardware.
Motherboard Chipset: The chipset helps deliver the data flowing in the buses to the right computer component.
PCI: PCI stands for Peripheral Component Interconnect. This helps connect and support sound cards, DVD decoders, and graphic accelerators from the motherboard to the computer.
USB3: The USB3 helps deliver faster buses and makes nearly everything faster. It also gives extra power to the USB ports and devices.
On/Off Charge: This feature allows you to charge your iPod whether the system is turned off or on.

Antec Three Hundred Two Gaming Case Step 1: Take out the motherboard and put it on the anti static pad. Before doing this, rub your hands on something metallic to rid of your static charge. If you don't and you touch the computer components, you may discharge it. anti static pad Step 2: Insert CPU in the CPU socket. Move the cover up and place CPU facing up. Then apply a thin layer of thermal paste (this will help cool CPU). After, put cover back down and secure it. Step 3: Apply the CPU Fan on top of the thermal paste and attach it to the motherboard by placing the pins of the fan and pressing it diagonally and turn clockwise on the holes in the motherboard. Step 4: Install the RAM into the memory slots and do not overlap. Place the RAM in alternate slots. Step 5: Connect the 24 pins and the separate 8 pins of the power supply to the motherboard and then plug the cord to an outlet. After this, we hook it up to a monitor and turn the computer on to see if it works and responds. 8 pins 24 pins Power Button RAM CPU Fan.
Make sure the wire on top does not touch anything and is not tangled. thermal paste over CPU cover Step 6: Place power supply into case and start putting motherboard in there as well. Remember to discharge yourself before touching the components, especially the motherboard. Step 7: Insert all the components in the case, such as DVD drive and hard drive and then connect it to the motherboard. hard drive DVD drive Our drive is a Blu-Ray DVD drive so it can read Blu-Ray DVDs Hypothesis- If we custom-build our own computer, then we will create a more economical, efficient, and high quality computer than the store bought ones.

Question- Will a custom-build computer be cheaper than a store bought with the same quality or components? Data and Analysis RAM
