Very good, now just take your time with the cabling..essentials first then Sata is how I usually go about it.

Personally I find it easier to install my HSF on the CPU before I install the Mobo in the Case, in my TJ09 anyhow...

Firestrike Extreme: 21.452
MARK 11: 32.530

Introducing me n my OCD to Watercooling, is like taking an Alcoholic to an "all you can drink" Beach Bar in Mexico

Yes its recomended to install the cpu cooler before installing the mobo
into your case

and next i also recomment the same as rjbarker does and allways double check the cabling before turning on your system.

Good luck and enjoy your new pc

You should really build the PC really quick just on/outside the boxes to make sure it posts to the bios to make sure everything is working a-ok, I've personally never done this but I would like to with my new build just incase, but I probably won't get around to it. But yea, maybe even run memtest while your at this stage to make sure your rams all good, I've experienced ALOT of odd and weird problems just because of faulty ram that can make you think crazy little aliens are running around in your computer. In all seriousness though, building the pc on a desk/workstation prior to putting in a case is the best option to do, I'm sure a couple people can vouch for that.
