PC Building Simulator 2 Update v1.4

Hello PC Builders!

Today we’ve got a new major update ready to drop straight out of our hands and onto the floor. It’s time for PC Building Simulator 2 Update v1.4! In today’s update, we’re expanding our water-cooling offering along with introducing exciting new parts, partners and long-awaited CPU delidding.

First though, speaking of exciting new partners, this blog needs an exciting segue – to our new decorator theme…

Decorator Theme: Linus Tech Tips

Ever wanted to take your PC building to the next golden subscriber milestone? Celebrate your hard work in style and give yourself an ultimate workshop upgrade on us, with the Linus Tech Tips decorator theme!

Building a PC to survive the end of the world? Adding enough storage for your favourite creator to record popular cube-based constructions? Contemplating building the ‘all Uncle Tim pc’? Try out the new theme where there’s space (and screwdrivers) for almost everything.

Note: vacuum-insulated water bottle not included.

New Feature: CPU Delidding

In our second tech-tuber team-up, we’re happy to introduce CPU delidding tools inspired directly by Roman “der8auer” Hartung’s Delid Die Mate series products.

Push your processors even further beyond with extra overclocking headroom. Replace the factory compound by removing the integrated heat spreader and applying liquid metal from the serene safety of simulation.

New Partner: SAPPHIRE

Often requested, today we welcome another heavy hitter to our list of partners – SAPPHIRE! SAPPHIRE has been a red team staple for over 22 years and remains a regular community recommendation at every level of PC building.

Today we welcome their latest PULSE and NITRO+ AMD Radeon 7000 series offerings to PC Building Simulator 2.

New Partner: AZZA

Launching with a mission statement that includes ‘pushing the boundaries of the impossible’ AZZA has had a huge impact on PC Building with their novel approach to case designs, reminding us they can be more than a simple box to place parts in.

Check out social media’s favourite PYRAMID L alongside their futuristic OPUS chassis in today’s update.
