Windows 7: Building my PC

Here is a good video on how to bench your parts to make sure they work before putting them in the case. I'm not crazy about the way he put the TIM (aka paste) on the CPU prior to installing the cooler. There is a good chance of getting air bubbles that way. This video shows a better way of applying the TIM. I suggest trying it a few time, pulling it off after each time, to see if you are getting the right amount on there. You can clean the TIM off with 90%+ isopropyl alcohol and something lint free like coffee filters.

The Newegg TV (first one) starts the bench testing at 5:29.

I would build it outside the case and then get it to boot in bios and make sure ram and everything is seen then build away. Use the stock cooler first then remove and install new H105 retention plate.

Isopropyl alcohol 91% or more works, also non-oily nail polish remover.
