Thank you for showing up and for the support.

Would take a rest for now. I'm pretty exhausted for now.

It would be a good idea to make a note stating to install just enough stand-offs for their motherboard. I scared later people install standoffs in every hole and end up also shorting their motherboard.

When doing the PSU section, have some closeup shots of the PSU connecters, otherwise some people may take the 8-pin PCI-E connector and try to jam it into the 8-pin motherboard power socket.

One more thing, you forgot to talk about applying thermal paste.

It is necessary... If not, it wun be adequate enough to transfer heat from the cpu to the heatsink...

not necessary for a new heatsink i reckon? Since there are already thermal 'sticker' on them already.

If there is thermal paste on those 3rd party heatsinks, den u dun need to get. But some brands dun provide, so u gonna have to get your own TIM. Besides, most brands include lousy TIM which dries up very fast. I would prefer to invest is a decent TIM like MX4. cheap and good.
