Chapter 3: Installing the CPU, Heatsink, and RAM On The Mainboard
The process of building a PC consists of several major phases. One of the most important is installing the mainboard into the system case. However, once the mainboard is in the case, it is rather difficult to access it to install components on the board. For that reason most PC assemblers first set up the mainboard with critical components before they put the mainboard into the case.
In this chapter well do exactly that. Well start by installing the CPU into the mainboard, then attach the heatsink and fan, and finally, insert the RAM modules.
