Ok well i just ordered my asus A7N8X Deluxe board along with a Athlon XP 2700+ CPU. My question is, how hard is it to install a CPU to a motherboard. This is going to be my first time installing a chip to a mobo so I am sorta nervous. I already have my windows XP os so I hope I dont have much software issue. Should I have bought an adhesive to increase conductivity? I didnt buy it cause it was 10 dollars extra. I know that doesnt sound alot but when im already spending so much for a board and chip every penny counts. Can anyone tell me any tips on what I problems I am going to encounter because when I change the board and I encounter some problems I might not be able to get online. So I would like to get all the advice i can before i install it. Thank you for all your help.
