do you mean putting it together?

Check this out for some background knowledge, and some half-decent pics: Build Your Own Comp

Personally I wouldn't put a magnetic screwdriver anywhere near my PC, just in case I manage to stab my HDD with it, so please ignore #10 at the start of the guide:

"10. Using a magnetic screw driver (so that you do not have to touch the motherboard to remove dropped screws), attach all the screws on the motherboard loosely, then tighten all of them gently - do not over-tighten.
"
If you do drop a screw onto the motherboard (highly likely at some point), use a pair of tweezers/pliers to retrieve it.

One other thing (for a first time build): When it comes to mounting the motherboard, please remember to use the spacers/standoffs.

What you're going to want to do is attach the CPU and the cooler (and NB cooler, if need be) to the mobo before you put anything in the case. Put the I/O shield into your case (I always forget about this part, lol) and then put in the whole conglomerate you just put together and screw it down. Now that you have that in, you have a choice, you can do other hardware or put in the PSU depending on the size of your case. I like to the do the PSU early, but hey, you might not like all the wires going around. If not, put in the RAM into their slots and the video card(s) and any other hardware you have left. Next, screw in your PSU, and start attaching cables to everything...don't forget about the case power cables, too I think that covers it, if you have questions, just ask back here.

I think the best way to proceed is to have 2 seperate "work-spaces" going.

On the 1st . I like to prep the mobo. Get the CPU installed. Use your Arctic Silver and attach the cooler. Depending on the size of the cooler and mobo - It can be a real pain to install it once it's in the case. Forget about wores and stuff for now and just get the mobo preped to go in the case.

On the 2nd workspace. Prep the case. I find that it's best to put the PSU in the case first. Once again - depending on size - It could be nearly impossible to get the PSU in once the mobo is installed. Get your opticals in and secured as well as your Hard Drives and fans. Once again - do not plug any of the wires in just yet and just fold them out of the way.

So - now that you have your mobo completely assembled on one table and your case fully assembled on another...now it will be pretty easy to combine the 2. Put your mbo in the case and get the moutning screws secured.

Once the mobo is in the case - now you can start routing your cables and wires to the proper components. If you wait to do the wiring - now it takes less cable-ties and you can route wires in groups.

Once everything is wired and installed - I like to fire her up with the side panel removed to make sure everything is spinning etc.

That's the way I do it.

Yea. It could screw up the stable magnetic field. (Same with the processor. )

Can't say I have one of those, and I haven't messed up a mobo yet.

For my next build, I'm going to make sure I have the case right beside the motherboard. You know those power and reset switch cables? Man they are a ***** to hook up if you've already mounted your MOBO in the case.
