Hey guys, I just got my new ram mobo and cpu. How do I begin? I've never changed my mobo before S: The new one is Micro ATX as was my last one, so are the headers already setup for me?

to start off, read your motherboard's manual!

If you have not done this, the first step is to read the mobo handbook. The next step I take is to track down all the voltage numbers for the CPU,NB, RAM and all that good stuff. I dislike letting the mobo auto set stuff. after that is pretty simple. follow instructions in the mobo hand book. Its that simple.

Make sure you're working in a relatively static free environment as well when you're switching out the components.

Wouldn't be a good idea to be walking around in your socks on the carpet beforehand
