Okay guys.

I got all my stuff and I have started building.

I put my RAM in and my CPU, and I put my motherboard in my case.

I'm having a hard time screwing it to the bottom of my case and pushing it into the I/O Shield. I'm really nervous I'll screw something up. I tried like 400 times and finally, it fit into the I/O shield.

Help! Is it normal to screw it in and it never gets tighter? :confused: I did it with 3 screws already, but the next are super hard to tighten and I don't know how! PLEASE HELP ME!!

Not unless you tried to boot like that.

Just put one where each screw needs to go, place the mobo on top, then put screws into them.

Just be sure there is one for each hole in the mobo, and they all line up.

I only have 6 and the motherboard has 8. :confused:

That's OK if you don't have enough.. Just make sure the corners and center of the motherboard are supported.

DONE! I am so freaking stressed right now. I did the CPU, RAM, PSU, and mounting. And my DVI-AVG converter is funky,... ugh. My stomach is sick. I hope I didn't screw anything up.

And yes, I am on a dining room table -- static free :D

Is it all right if I just close my case back up and continue in the morning? :/
