stupid question (pentium vs amd)

#1
I have to build a pentium computer from the ground up, but all of the systems I've built in the past have been AMD ones. My question is, would it be the same setup considering the chip placement, thermal grease, heatsink? or is it different? thanks

Pentium HSF's are easier to put in. Just plonk it into the guides and secure the levers.

Apart from that you won't find any difficulties. Its mostly self explanatory when you really have a look at it.

Shouldn't be a problem. Intel is easier since you don't need to be as cardful with the HSF as on an AMD because if it's construction. Don't forget the 4-pin 12V line though! :)
