    What?!? The CPU and HSF (edit: and PSU!) is already installed for them? Weak!!! :rolleyes:

    :p

    This much is certain: they didn't install Windows or drivers in less than 4 minutes!!! :biggrin

    Clearly it was supposed to be tongue in cheek.

    if the cpu and hsf and psu is already installed there aint much left. screw in the mobo attach atx cables, plug it in especially if the mobo has onboard graphics.

    If I remember correctly, there was a video card to "install". The mobo was already screwed in, but you had to put in memory and attach the PSU cables.

    Well that makes it even slower then. pluggin in a couple of dimms attaching an atx cable and a couple of molex connectors that doesn't take any time at all. All the time consuming stuff has already been done like adding the cpu adding thermal paste, attaching the cooler, adding the stand offs, screwing in the mobo and screwing in the psu and adding the gpu and the hard drive. sure usually I take my time if I have add some dimms and attach a new atx cable and some molex connectors but what does that take? about 5 minutes if your taking your time.

    looks like a lot of fun - would be good if something like this happened in UK. Maybe even having slightly different comp - like build a lab etc

    This is hardly building a computer, all the slightly tricky stuff has been done already including the real time consuming stuff, like un-boxing things and getting it out of the plastic packaging :eek:
