    This one, so should I just use the supplied one that comes with it? i5 processor
    Noctua paste is considered top quality.

    So I should use the extra fan and the paste with it?

    Not sure what you mean by extra fan, but yes you should use the included Noctua paste. Don't need to go buy additional paste when Noctua paste is good.

    Have to agree with the choice of noctua paste. Easy to apply & to wipe. No cure time and 0% conductive.

    You should be using the one you bought, with the paste that is included in the package. It'll be cooler and quieter performance.

    Noctua has the best fans btw.

    @Op you shouldn't use other fans than the stock noctua fans except if they have a high static pressure.

    If you are really going to be doing "a lot of video encoding" then I would seriously think about the i7.

    So all the parts are here. Get to build it tomorrow * excited little girl scream*. Only problem is I'm REALLY nervous about a few things;

    Static, what's the best way to avoid it? I'll be building it on a wooden table but it's legs are sitting on a rug. Is their something certain I should wear/do to avoid static?

    Breaking things, this is probably my biggest worry, the parts seem very volatile and fragile and I'm pretty heavy handed (awesome). Anyone have any tips to helping me keep my cool?

    I'm probably over thinking things and I *hope* it'll be a breeze.

    Thanks for the help ^^.

    Okay. Everything is going fine so far. Apart from one thing. I'm about to install the gpu but their are multiple PCI express slots. Does it matter which I use? I looked in the mobo manual and it doesn't specify.

    Tier gear should be available during the leveling process. I don't want to have to mingle with these eltitist jerks in LFR to get gear as it is. I pay a sub fee, I shouldn't have to do LFR to get raid gear, much less Flex or Normal.
