That is a tourny I could win, remember the scene in Armageddon when they dismantle the nuke in about 30 seconds? That was me in Morgan Computers for the guy that brought back his faulty PC at 4:50pm and I was ready to go home. :lol:

I think of we went away with this, it would be better to bring in your own tools for the creation and dismantle of the PC, that way, its also down to the creator to give themselves the best chance of winning. No electric tools ofcourse, thats too much of an advantage lol. If your serious about making PCs, you will have the best tools for the job already.

Because of course all of us can afford toolkits?

Tool kits aren't expensive. Plus nothing says you need a full tool kit. Best to keep things simple multi screw driver, compressed air can to clean out if needed. For me that's about it and all that's needed most of the time.

I don't have those. I use my dad's, or I use the ones on site. Until I get an income NOT consisting of Jobseekers, that's all I will have.

Honestly, to create or dismantle just about any standard ATX form factor PC the only tool you need is a philips screwdriver

Sounds Cheap.. But the local £1 shop. If you are just dimantling a PC, the tools dont have to be of amazing quality because the job isnt going to be too vigourous. Your not going to screw it too tight.

as long as it screws and unscrews screws, then use, dont lose with the blues. dont abuse the screws when you unscrew, or the screws are screwed..

Dr Seuss would be proud. :D

my eyes arent :S

im sure someone could provide a screwdriver, im just thinking for a final test, i could get hold of a laptop, it might not work but for the case of a speed dismantle and rebuild, it would have to be done perfectly and all the right screws in the right holes plus a mixture of hex, phillips and flat head screws.

i have the unfair advantage of having to do about 3 of these a day lol

As this idea seems to be popular as a tournament for the next LAN. I am looking into seeing if I can make it possible. I would like to put some limits in place. The first being a 10 minute time limit so people feel the pressure. The other is that the machine must post. What do people think please?

sounds good, post would be the final test i think, OS doesnt really matter.

but would it be, machine is at the bios screen and we have to power off, dismantle then re-assemble the machine. but what is the point at which we say, yes, thats dismantled enough? every component (heatsink, cpu, daughter boards, ram etc) has been removed from each other and on the table or what?

I would say, everything (including cd/dvd drive and psu) removed from the case and on the table, each component is on its own and not connected to anything else, once verified by tournament leader (whom ever whats the job i guess) then the re-assembly can commence.

sound good?
