Open board box, no loose caps inside the bag. Check.
Remove CPU socket caps, no bent pins. Check.
Install CPUs. Check.
Install ram sticks. Check.
Install HSFs. Check.
Drop board on cardboard box. Check.
Sata cable connection from board to SSD. Check.
Figure out which cables you need for the build from the modular PSU. Check.
Start wiring the board and SSD. Check.

What's this? Oh, the second EPS connector. Right. Better get that adaptor out before I forget.

Already used on the 4p rig.

Canada Computers, you better have a PCIe-to-EPS adaptor in stock this afternoon, or else...
I've also ordered one from NCIX, just in case.

So I removed the 2nd CPU, and at least the darn thing booted fine on the 1st try.

Pics to come later this evening.
Hydro-Quebec is salivating...
