I got excited putting my first pc together, turned the tower on to check and make sure all of the fans and cdrom drives worked. Then I realized that I didn't have the heat sink on the CPU and shut the system down myself. It was on for about 10 seconds, max.

This shouldn't be a problem, I wouldn't worry about it if it was only for about 10 seconds or so. Did you get power to everything when you did this ?
