Installation

WARNING – Use extreme caution when installing LGA 1366 CPUs. The pins in the CPU socket are very fragile and easily damaged. DO NOT TOUCH THE PINS WITH YOUR FINGERS!

Carefully install your CPU and apply the thermal paste.  In this step I also installed the mounting brackets for the Cooler Master V6 GT CPU cooler.

Next go ahead and install your memory and CPU cooler.  Remember to use the white slots first when using triple channel memory.  Even though our CPU cooler is quite large there is more than enough room to install it and to install our memory.

Go ahead and install the motherboard in your case.  We are using the BitFenix Colossus so there is more than enough room inside of the case.  Finally connect everything up and you are ready to power your system on.  The motherboard did not cause any issues at all when it came to installation.
