Alright guys and girls, I'm starting work on version 2 of the guide, what do YOU want to see included in the next release (even if it's already been posted)?

Won't promise that I can include EVERYTHING that's posted, but I'll include what I find relevant to the topic to the best of my ability.

Suggestion for next version, a step that I always take after unboxing the case. Have a glance over it and careful prod around for any sharp edges, and trim them down. Most will be fine but the odd cheapy can still be nasty, and I've fallen foul of this before when wrist-deep in a PC trying to plug in an awkward fan connector, bleeding onto the mobo...

I'm just about to start my first build and just a quick question.

You mention about Anti Static wrist strap (or grounding yourself) but is there any need for an anti-static mat?

I think I'm tring to convince myself that it's a bit OTT but at the same time don't want to short a brand new CPU/GPU before I've even got it working

Thanks for the great guide

I have to admit, the mother board manuals are good, the a lot has to be desired for, for the case manual and power supply manual. I have a Fractal Define R3 case, with cables coming out of them. Some cables have names against them which I can figure out. Others, I have no idea and just guess work, or tallying with the mobo manual. If there is a connector which has not been connected, you get worried as to where it goes.

I'm following this (still waiting on a couple more parts), and I think a bit can be added to the processor section:

1) Mention the arrow on both the processor and the socket, and that they should be in the same corner.

2) Mention the **** TONNE of force required to push some processors in some motherboards, and that the velcro/scraping/crushing type noise is completely normal. Note that even when it looks like the lever is bending a bit as you push down and could snap at any moment, as long as you know the processor is for that type of socket, that it's in perfectly, and that you're pushing down gradually, don't worry, just keep going. This really needs being driven home because some tutorials say there shouldn't be any pressure, and even in videos when they say there'll be some pressure it doesn't truly underline how much, and I think everyone's first time encountering this was bloody scary.
