I Will be Building a new computer in 2 to three days should I make an instructable for it? Answered

I have seen many Build your own computer here but all are missing one or two important and non important instructions about building your own computer. Cable management, Saftey issues, Case Modding and so on, Has this subject been done to much ? or is it safe to do another with everything on it ?

I've built two PC's myself so I think I can offer a suggestion for that you don't normally see in How-To's.
Spend some time describing the process; how you decided on what kind of system you wanted, determining what components and software you used, bringing together all the elements of your build, ordering the parts, organizing and planning.
Concentrate on the trickier aspects of the build, eg: which cables from the PSU go were, installing the CPU, etc.
Bolting together the components is easy, making the right decisions is hard. Showcase the hard stuff, highlight the easy stuff.

Always make an instructable for anything you do.   Even if it's been done before you might cover something better that all the others and end up being featured.
