Do not worry about it Beks - i am brining heaps of stuff for LN2 and 1366 if you are a bit nervouse about killing your motherboard
not to worry I have a couple spare that you can use. I will bring a spare R4E just in case. And insulation is no problem. i am sure that there will be many of those at the meet willing to take the time to show you what all is needed. And really it is not a big deal. Honest - I have never killed a board yet. Graphic cards plenty, motherboards nah, well there was the one time a board caught fire in front of 50 people, and that other time visiting Daulist both my boards stopped working.
But they still work
Seriously now you will find it a bit of a cakewalk so bring it on I say.
