Oh yeah, don't worry TRD, I've spent weeks researching how a PC fits together, and I've read the motherboard manual at least 3 times all the way throuygh. I've also printed a guide just to make sure I keep on track with things.
One question I do have though is do I HAVE to use thermal paste on the processor? I've had friends who don't and they've been fine. Is there any damage done to it without the stuff?
EDIT: I also bought an anti-static wristband to be sure of not shocking myself
