Thank you for deleting my post? What is it with you guys? Little bit of power goes to your heads...sad. If he needs to ask such a dumb question, then no way should he even attempt it.

What are you talking about Akula?! Of course he should try it, first of its not that hard, second if he just read stuff of the nett and maybe watches some movies on places like youtube about building he will fo just fine. I know I did with three computers.

Actually for a "dumb question" its pretty easy to build your own machine for a first timer. The only thing that could go wrong with a first build is to touch the cpu while installing it.

Nothing wrong with that unless you bend a pin or fry it with static.

Touch the CPU??? Oh, your talking about these new sensitive CPUs, with the micro-pins...

What I'm worried about is the heatsink grease. Not too much, or not too little. So as not to cause the processor to overheat. The last time I rendered the grease useless by putting the whole packet on it.

Do these new processors come with pads instead of grease???

The most common thing I've done wrong, is plug the Power or reset button in wrong. Sometimes I have to press "reset" to turn the computer on. More likely it was mixed with the LEDs.

I've not seen a boxed CPU in years whose stock HSF unit didn't have a crappy little thermal pad on it. Pretty idiot-proof nowadays for a basic system.

Aye, they often have either a normal thermal pad or a thin pad-like layer of TIM that isn't actually a pad, but it's such a neat square it looks like one. Most aftermarket (ie decent) heatsinks come with a tube of the stuff so you can apply it yourself.
