This is my 1st time building a new computer from parts I have just bought, and I have 2 questions. If someone could please answer them.
1) When trying to hook my power supply to my motherboard I fing out that my mobo has a 24 pin connector and my power supply has a 20 pin connector. Will the 20 pin connector work? Do I need a converter? I guess I could send one of them back to newegg and get another that works. What is the best solution to my prob?

2) I had some trouble figuring out how to install my heat sink to my CPU and in the process had to pull the heatsink off the CPU once after the adheasive pad (or whatever its called) had already connected with the CPU. About a minute after that I figured out how and place the heatsink back on. But the instructions say to replace the pad if u take the heat sink off the CPU. Is that really necessary? I didn't power up anything.
Thanks in advance if anyone can help me.
