Did your motherboard come with a manual showing where to plug in the fan?

One comment I have pasted from a board review below:

The layout of the board is clean and tidy with the ATX and IDE/Floppy headers conveniently placed out of the way of the processor fan and peripheral cards on the edge of the PCB. One point of concern, though, is the area around the processor which is surrounded by capacitors, making fitting of a large cooler almost impossible.

If this is your first time doing this I would really recommend getting a friend or someone to help you out.  The whole process isn't that hard once you get the hang of it, but one wrong move can fry your system.
