Henry Cavill has posted a video to his Instagram account of his new PC build, and it has garnered over 1 million views within hours of having been uploaded. The actor, best known for his roles in Superman and The Witcher, has over 12 million followers on his Instagram account, although few people would probably have imagined that he would have uploaded the process of building a gaming rig.

Based around a Ryzen 9 and a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, the video has gained more attention for the way Cavill built his machine rather than the components he chose for it. Some people note that he almost incorrectly inserted the CPU, for example, and that he did not apply on thermal paste. However, others have pointed out that the used an AIO with pre-applied thermal paste, so he was not running his CPU bare.

Overall, the video is a fun take on building a PC, not least because of the Barry White soundtrack. You can watch the video below. It is unclear whether he plans to play as himself in The Witcher 3, though.
