Re: Building a computer...in need of help!
Not entirely true. Some cases nowadays (even relatively cheap ones) have a cutout panel that gives you access to the back of the motherboard where you'd install the brackets. Having said that, I would suggest getting them all at the same time. Not that you'd even turn your computer on without a heatsink/cooler.
The case he purchased does have that cutout, by the way. And from experience, I would suggest screwing your MoBo in and using that to help with the installation of the standoffs and mounting bracket. Or maybe I just failed at that step when I installed mine!
