Also, if you all could tell me one more thing while we here.. I have a Phenom II 955 BE processor, and was wondering about the heatsink and if it matters which side the handle for the locking mechanism latches down on. The bracket or bracer(on the motherboard, around the socket) that it attaches to has two little hooks on each side. Does it matter if the locking mechanism is attached to a certain one of these hooks, or are they exactly the same in every way? I have a Zalman 9900 LED heatsink/fan. I am a first time system builder so I'm trying to get some things right, and then I have to configure the DRAM settings and timings in the BIOS - which I'm totally clueless about! Again, everyone, I thank you for the assistance!
