Default PC assembly question..

so.. I am getting ready to assemble my new pc and I was curious about installing my CPU. I have an E7200 and I was wondering if it is any different than installing a normal amd CPU? Also, if anyone has pics of how to install and e7200 or something like that. That would be wonderful..

one more thing, I thinkI asked this early but I couldn't find my old post.
I am going to use some thermal paste that i used when I built my first cpu like 2 years ago is that ok ?

Check this out:
How To Install An Intel Socket 775 Processor and Heatsink - PCSTATS.com

You should be safe with the paste you used before as long as it's Arctic Silver, MX-2, or something along the lines of one of those. I wouldn't use the thermal paste that came with a heatsink or the Intel cpu.


Random movie quote to make you seem hip and "with it":
"Please take the chairs away. I don't like them. The big one is staring at me and that short one is being very droll."

Well the main difference is that core2 chips dont have pins anymore, so its a lot harder to screw something up. Just line up the notches and you're good to go.
Nothing to see here.
