Computer Hardware Chart

I recently came across a really useful Computer Hardware Chart made by a member on Deviantart that helps you visually identify plugs, ports, sockets, RAM and other computer components.

Most technicians should already know how to identify many of these, but there a quite a lot of lesser known plugs and ports that I either haven’t seen before or have seen, but didn’t know what it was called.

I have provided a link to a shrunken down version for easy web viewing that is only 2mb in size and an extremely high resolution version that weighs in at 24mb.


You can also get these graphics printed as a poster to hang in your workshop over at DeviantArt via this link.

    Vey useful to have on the wall of you come across something new but also for teaching less experienced techs

  • Yeah, I’m thinking about some fine art – have it printed and framed or laminated for something other than motherboards to hang on the wall! LoL!!! :)

  • jason says:

    WoW some of these i have never seen before.. well i know OFF them but never seen them in the flesh XD

  • vandalais says:

    $50 is a little steep for a reference chart but decent for fine art. Would love to have it framed on office wall.

  • Luis says:

    not nice enough for fine art. great reference though. At the risk of sounding cheap, I’d never pay for a bunch of copy & paste pictures. as a general reference its cool, maybe something to look at while your bored, but nothing i’d pay for

    Brought back some old memories,

    of memory in a Motorola based machine I built from scratch.
    Happy days

    The large version has the EPS12V label where it should be, smaller not.
