It would help if someone would explain to me how to mount anything in my tower. What order parts go. What wires I need to connect and don't need to connect. etc. That's not going to happen though.

ha. ha. AHA.

Here's a question someone can answer. I mounted a fan over CPU by accident not realizing that's where my liquid cooler goes. Then I mounted liquid cooler but had to take it off because I couldn't put them in the tower at the same time or even figure out how to get either of them in there. That's 2 encounters with thermal paste for my CPU. Can I remount it like I did last night when I figure out how to get the motherboard in the tower? Or do I need to scrape both of them clean and reapply new paste? Am I fu*****?

I think we need to sacrifice a member before AI will come.

I nominate X-3.

You should be using thermal paste remover and a purifying solution. Just scraping it off will leave imperfections in the paste which can cause it to perform badly, or leave microabrasions in the CPU surface. I use ArcticClean and their paste, Arctic Silver 5. This will give you instructions as well:
