Ok guys help me out. This is probably a really stupid question but I'll ask it anyway.

I just got all the parts in for my new 1.8a P-4 / Koolance 601 system. Have everything except the waterblock which won't be out for another couple of weeks (the socket 478 from koolance). Question is, is it going to hurt anything if I go ahead and install everything and get everything set up and running with the stock intel heatsink and then once I get the new waterblock in take off the heatsink and water cool it???
