The first step is mounting your CPU and your RAM to the motherboard. Check your particular user's manual and see if any jumpers need to be set on your motherboard, such as the FSB, the clock speed, and the core voltage. The CPU has a corner cut out that matches the socket on the Socket 370 type, and your RAM should always start off in slot one of the RAM slots (this is usually the one closest to the CPU). Most motherboards are jumperless these days, but check your manual to see if you have jumpers to be set. If you do, set them at this time. Use your needle nose pliers for this task.
