when you power on some equipment there is a current peek that will degrade component over time you can compare with light bulb, they always blow when you turn light on, there is a light bulb, the Centennial Light, that was turned ON in 1901 and has never goes off since

@Jay, I would say it's pretty simple to tell why a computer has a higher chance to blow a component while starting up. It's just like with Wolfram bulbs that pop the wolfram when you turn them on, the sudden raise of temperature that being uneven, may put some tension on cooler, more rigid parts. That could also break some things at a micro level. The resistance also varies with temp. In these circumstances, some inner components might not take that initial shock well, some cases leading to smoke. This could happen in places where resistance is expected to be at a certain value based on the env temp.

As an owner of "Overpowered PSU": In my gaming and entertainment PC which happens to be in our bedroom, and often in use late at night even after one of us falls asleep, I use an "overpowered" PSU, a Corsair HX1000i. Because it can deliver more wattage than let's say HX750i while remaining cool, and therefore passively cooled and quiet. Quiet at night like the rest of my PC, with a graphics card that can cool itself well at low fan speeds in simpler gaming, or stop its fans, oversized CPU cooler for stock CPU speeds, and so on. Then what about efficiency? If a computer's total power draw while just browsing is 85W and efficiency of the PSU is around "measly" 85%, how many Watts exactly is the PSU wasting and turning into heat, versus when gaming, and PC draws 370W at 92% efficiency for example? Yeah, it's not all in the efficiency %, because it IS a percentage of another, greatly changing number. As for waste of energy in general, please do think of the environment where you can. If your PC does generate lots of heat while you game, try to utilize it for heating your home, especially if you live in a cold country where the heat can be very useful rather than a nuisance.

Power on is more dangerous for components because when you turn it on it's going from no power to max power instantly, and that's hard on components. Parts that don't use 100% of their rated voltage during ordinary running will use 100% during boot, so if some component has degraded to the point it will only handle 90% of the current it's supposed to be rated for it's going to blow next time you boot up, but will only blow during ordinary use if you're running it pretty hard.

The memory/ RAM rule USED to be true, and the standard for making your PC faster. My family's second PC was an IBM Aptiva 535. It ran a 80486DX2/ 66mh. (486 with 66mh) It came with a HUGE 540MB hard disk, and 8 megs of RAM. Ran Windows 3.1 pretty well, but chugged with 95. Though at the time everything chugged with Windows 95. So went back to DOS/ 3.1, but upgraded it to 16 MB of RAM and it flew. (Also pro tip for the retro Windows 3.1/3.11 people. 16 or even 24 Megs of RAM a 1GB hard disk, and a socket 7 Pentium at 133 mh and your retro LAN will FLY)

Turning your computer on causes problems most often, in my understanding, because whenever you turn on a powered electrical device of almost any nature, generally speaking, there is an initial 'spike' in power, for lack of a better term. I'll use a car for an example, though a car is actually engineered on purpose to do this. When you start your car, there is a huge draw in power, because it's needed to ignite the initial burst of gasoline via the spark plugs, get the motor started, move the pistons, etc, etc, etc. In a computer, this isn't necessarily the case, but similarly, before the psu can regulate the power involved, there is usually a bit of a small spike over and above the standard operating voltage as each circuit powers up (there are tolerances for this in the manufacturing process such that it SHOULDN'T damage components. If it breaks those tolerances as set forth by other component manufacturers, the psu is considered 'broken' or 'damaged'.) PSU's can and do regulate voltage as part of their operation, but it's hard to break basic electrical engineering rules. Also, if you wanted to debunk a myth, we should have heard about psu degradation, which was the idea psus degrade up to possibly 10% per year, making them generate less power. This was a pretty common belief in the early internet age and late 90s to early 2000s span, and persists even today. In reality, while the components degrade and may fail over time (usually the fans first, capacitors second, other components thereafter.), usually it doesn't manifest in lowered wattage capacity, but instead in immediate failure of the unit or diminished cooling (in the case of the fans). Note that this also depends on ambient temperature, humidity, and a slew of other contributing factors. Always store machines in a cool, dry place!

I'm getting a little long in the tooth. I didn't realize people started to make up nonsense about how its good to leave your computer on. Spoiler warning: The reason why people left their computers on all day and night in the long long ago had to do with one thing: Booting up. Mechanical Drives were a thing. People were not remotely tech savvy. But people always have hated waiting. And people didn't understand online etiquette in the early days of the internet (and antivirus wasn't really a huge thing). The reason they left it on was because they didn't feel like dealing with the 3+min boot time every time they wanted to use their PC. I stopped leaving my PC on all day and night when SSDs became a thing. And with m.2 being a thing, there is even less of a reason to.

Whilst the power supply detail you provided were true it still makes no sense going so big. A single CPU, single GPU rig uses about 300w - 400w loaded witc which is outside the 50% - 70% efficiency window of just about any 1kw PSU under load and far far outside it at idle. That sort of load would be a better fit for a 600w PSU.

Can you please pick up the 'the eye can't see more than 30 fps' bullshit people are still repeating over and over again? There are actually people defending the all so common 30 fps cap on consoles. I know people might find 30 fps sufficient but I think it could be a good video showing the huge differences with fast movements on different fps, maybe recording in slow motion, to easily and plausibly explain how more fps result in more information that the eye will always recognize. I think it's a nobrainer but I see a lot of people argue about this. I don't think anyone playing on a 144hz strobe light monitor can ever go back even to 60hz. You could also compare different display technologies and how they affect the image and our perception of it (like persistence vs non persistence), you could talk about the history of displays, as you also experienced the change from crt to tft. I think the topic has a lot of potential for a big video. You can also explain why 24fps in video is different from 24 fps in a game...

When you power a system on and it breaks a component is commonly known as system shock, componet is cold you hit it with power which causes a heat spike due to the component may already have asome lower quality parts in it causes the system to fail. We perfromed this test whilst at university whilst I was doing my Micro Electrical Engineering degree. And it's not just computers that get system shock.

When people say adding ram makes their computer faster, it's because their going from single channel to dual channel when they get a computer that only has one slot filled and they fill more. You can get rid of data to the point that it can't be recovered by encrypting the drive and wiping it if you want to keep it on for up to a couple weeks. People destroy them because they don't want to spend weeks wiping them and don't intend to resell them. Solid state drives dying faster then hard drives is not a myth. There's hard drives that lat over 30 years while solid state drives only last about 5 - 10 years when hard drives don't have the limit of write cycles that solid state drives have. The gap would only close with drives that experience abuse and are misused. Cables messing up air flow was also a thing back when people used IDE cables and didn't manage them properly witch I've also experienced back when I didn't have much of a choice on what to use because of my budget and had not enough room to manage the cables but that's not a problem, anymore with Sata. You'd have to test it with that generation of hardware to prove it was a problem at one time.
