My first build ever, went pretty well. The only problem I had was when attaching the 212 evo, like the goof I am, I put on way too much thermal paste. Probably about half the stock CM tube. Now my temps are less than desirable (Averaging ~40, highs of ~70). I'm planning on getting some Arctic Cooling paste next time I'm at NCIX but I'm in no rush because temps aren't dangerous although I would like to begin overclocking.
