Sorry i haven't updated, putting some more pictures up now. It all went ok and im typing from the pc now :)
My heart was pouncing when i first put the processor in the mobo, felt like quite a lot of pressure then i would have thought was needed was needed to secure the latch.

Now i just need a 5850 sometime next week and a new cooler. Anyone have any ideas on the cooler? It seems to be running a bit hot at stock at 40c with the stock cooler. Although there doesn't seem to be much choice in the 1156 cooler market as of yet.
