Okay, I finally got my PC parts today from Newegg, who sent then four days early. Go NewEgg!
I have a bunch of questions right now, and I will probably have a lot more later. First off, do I install my motherboard first and then add the CPU, etc. or do I first install the CPU and then place the motherboard in?
Second off, I don't think I got any spacers with my case, so do I have to buy them?
Third, I'm looking at the instructions manual for installing the CPU onto the motherboard, and it says something about some detaching the shielding of the backplate's paster. What is that supposed to mean? It seems to have to do something with the cooler set with the Athlon 64/FX, but I don't know what, and I don't think I got one of those with my CPU package.
