comment Development environment clean installation
Note: with older versions of windows, you need to install windows first. I've never done a Win7/Linux duel boot system, so I don't know if this is still the case (but it won't hurt to do windows first)

comment DVD drive not recognized
After getting a new cable, I connected both the HDD and DVD. Both were recognized. I must have not plugged it in all the way the first time.

Where can I find the correct idle temperature for my CPU? It is an Athlon II X2 250.

comment Hooking up my power switch/reset switch/LEDs
Thanks! It's good to know this won't damage anything. Being new to computer building, it's hard to know what parts I need to be really careful with, and I can relax about.

Sure enough: I didn't know that. It did come with its own panel. Thanks!
