Hey everyone,

I'd like to ask for help with a build for a classroom competition environment. Our school is hosting a district wide competition for Computer Hardware. So, our competition is going to be building a computer from hardware we provide them with. I was wondering what kind of hardware is out there that will be pretty easy to put together and not too complicated. For our IT essentials class we have clear cases and are willing to order more because they're pretty good. Just wondering what you guys think in terms of cpu heatsinks because we all know the Intel brand stock heatsinks really are a hassle when they break (which is very often).

Thanks everyone,

For those purposes, I suggest you scavenge second hand sites like kijiji or craigslist for some cheap old parts. You'll be able to find some good deals on there for older hardware.
