Extreme caution should be used when working around the CPU socket as the pins are very fragile. Observe the CPU and CPU socket “keys” to determine proper orientation of the CPU. Place the CPU in the socket, close the retainer and slide it under the locking lug located on the motherboard. Carefully lower the locking lever and lock it in place. Prep the CPU by cleaning with isopropyl alcohol and a lint free cloth.
Apply thermal compound per manufacturer’s instructions. Be aware if you are using a CPU cooler with heatpipes that directly touch the CPU surface you will need to physically spread the thermal compound with a credit card or other thin flat item as the cooler base will not properly spread the compound.
Prep the CPU cooler by cleaning with isopropyl alcohol and a lint free cloth.
Install the CPU cooler. Install the system memory. The memory will go into the into the light blue slots. If using four memory modules, install a pair first, then install the others after the system is set up and running.
Install the I/O shield into the case, then install the motherboard.
Wire things up, then install the video card. Double check your work, and you’re done.
