Smile New Build in boxes.......could use advice

Hello to all. I am new and wanted to ask some advice. I have a pile of parts from Newegg stacked here and I am looking for anyone else with similar components they have already assembled. I will start building very soon, but I have not run across anyone else with anything close. I am trying to minimize damage and/or simple mistakes that could end up ruining a somewhat costly parts list!!

I believe the components are listed in the sig...........(?)

This is my 5th build and I would appreciate input from those wiser and more experienced..............THANKS

(didnt show up in sig so here they are)

MSI 890FXA-GD70
PHII X6 1090t
Sapphire 5850 Vapor X
WD 750 BE
GSkill RipJaws 1600
Lite-On CD/DVD
Hyper 212+
NZXT Tempest EVO

Post what you got. It'd help us determine what goes where....

And didn't you research what you want BEFORE you bought your parts?

apologies about the list not showing up. I did exhaustive research on the parts and settled on the MSI board only because the continuing seemingly endless "release date" saga revolving around the CH-IV Extreme.

Rumor suggests end of this month. Asus tech support offered no info when I contacted their department here in the US. I settled for the MSI only after mentally soothing myself with a possible end-of-month purchase possibility.

This is a canadian forum... I suggest Techpowerup forums for help on your future buys and stuff :D Very helpful community over there...

You have any thermal paste? How close to the border of canada/montreal do you live? I could come and help you if you'd like xD

They look like they'll work fine so don't worry. When it comes to putting them together, it's just like a jig-saw puzzle. Each piece fits in only one way. Brute force will destroy it.

Where's the PSU?

I suggest you visit AnandTech as it's an excellent site and the forum community there is pretty good as well. Though I haven't posted or visited there that much in a long time now.
