EHW Tutorials - We need you!


ENTERPRISE

Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

 

I am wanting to put a Tutorial section together with "How To's" for the PC. I have some topic examples as shown below, this is not an exhaustive list by any means and we can have anything from beginner to expert level content. Why am I looking to do this? As a tech community, I feel that we should have a Tutorial section for members to access at their leisure, but this will also be useful content to refer a user to who comes seeking advice on any given topic. It is in our best interest to house Tutorial content, rather than pointing people out to the wider internet, this helps us keep our community bubble rich in best of breed content and will help to grow the community by making EHW an attractive resource overall.

 

Furthermore, this type of content helps to bolster our position on search engines and in general can help us leverage SEO further, but that is more of a secondary bonus overall.🙂

 

I am looking for help with this one in writing these up. I know we have talented writers here, so if you have any ideas and would like to run with it (or would like to run with an idea already listed), let me know here or in a PM and I will mark you against the topic. I am currently working on a dedicated FAQ section for the site where we will host this content, as we will keep it separate from the general forums. However that does not mean we cannot make a head start on the content!

 

I have come up with the below ideas off the top of my head, but please pop some suggestions here! 

 

Tutorial Topic list Examples.

 

- How to reset CMOS.

- BIOS flashback, what is it and how can I do it? 

- Best practice for Nvidia GPU Overclocks & stability testing.

- Using NVCleanstall to debloat Nvidia driver installers. @Mr. Fox

- Best practice for AMD GPU Overclocks & stability testing.

- Best practice for Intel CPU Overclocks & stability testing.

- Best practice for AMD CPU Overclocks & stability testing.

- Best practice for RAM Overclocks & stability testing.

- Overclockers Arsenal - Must have software/utilities for overlockers. @Mr. Fox

- Ensuring XMP/EXPO Is enabled for best out of box RAM performance.

- How to best diagnose a BSOD (Who Crashed).

- How to do a fresh install of GPU drivers (DDU).

- What services are safe to disable in Windows to free up resources? @Mr. Fox

- Slipstreaming a Windows image to remove bloatware (Nlite or similar).

- Setting a preferred DNS in Windows/Linux.

- Create a BAT script for mounting network drives on Windows boot.

- How to diagnose system lag & audio stutters (LatencyMon). 

- Utilities for tweaking Windows (Winaero Tweaker or similar). @Mr. Fox

- Reducing system latency (Optimizing interrupt signalling & Windows).

- Taking control of Windows Update. @Mr. Fox

- Tweaking for Performance vs. Security, Disaster Preparedness using Drive Images (Macrium Reflect) @Mr. Fox

-  Hosting multiple operating systems on one machine. @Mr. Fox

-  HWBOT Tweaks for better scores.

-  F@H PPD Efficiency Tweaking.

- Motherboard/GPU Prep for Sub-ambient overclocking.

- System Tuning For Gaming @GanjaSMK

 

Many thanks,

  • ENTERPRISE changed the title to EHW Tutorials - We need you!

I like it. Fantastic idea. I have identified several topics I could easily tackle. Below (from your list) are things that I routinely do where a tutorial could be benficial to others. Let's see how many respond and want to chip in. As long as it is an area of familiarity to me, you can count on me to fill in gaps if anyone is passionate about taking a specific topic.

A few similar topics could be things like how to take control of Windows Updates, Tweaking for Performance vs. Security, Disaster Preparedness using Drive Images (Macrium Reflect), How to Multi-Boot Operating Systems, etc.

maybe focus more on EHW-adjacent things? HWBOT Tweaks for better placement, F@H PPD Efficiency Tweaking, Motherboard/GPU Prep for Sub-ambient... ? 

 

"How to clear your CMOS" has 25,900,000 results on Google and even if EHW gets in the top 0.04% you're still gonna be the over 9000th result teehee

I tend to agree with Pookie here on this one.  Some of those topics, like the clear CMOS one, are definitely a tad generic and are probably going to get lost on google results.

I could give a how to on how to give a case a fresh coat of beige.  That help anybody?  🤣

I agree 100%, we should definitely cater to EHW-adjacent related content, no doubt about that and I will add it to the above list. However, I am also focusing on the basic/common items, such as "How to reset CMOS" as ultimately I am looking to build a library of content. Granted that the topic has been covered a thousand times by other sites and can be found almost anywhere via a Google search, but we should also be one of those thousands of sites picked up on Google search for that type of content, there is no downside 🙂

 

As an update, our Tutorial section is ready, I now just need to setup the Drafts category. This category will be made available to all those who want to submit a Tutorial. In this drafts section will also be a template to be followed so that all the submissions follow a common theme. As soon as this is all ready, I will post again here.

The thing is, if we create a tutorial for something simple like clearing CMOS, once it is there, it can be referenced and linked to open in a new window in the context of another tutorial where clearing CMOS is a recommended procedure. So, even if it offers minimal value as a standalone, it can be used to support other tutorials. Then you don't have to waste time explaining how to clear CMOS in a tutorial focused on another topic.

 Exactly, the Tutorials will be used as reference materials to point users towards, rather than re-hashing the topic over and over in multiple threads.
