Default Quick Question

Well the time as come, I've upgraded. Anyways my Motherboard, CPU, and CPU Cooler have arrived.

My question is, is it a good idea to put those components together first? Then mount it in my case, or should I mount the motherboard then intstall the CPU and Cooler. My case should be here in 1-2 days I think, I just cant wait.

Just remember, just because you cant figure out where that last wire should go, doesn't mean you can skip it.... (Speaking from personal experiance )

But, like the guy above me said, dont rush it. Nor should you work till 3 in the morning to get it done, thats the easyest way to miss something.

Gl with your build.
