I just finished installing the last part of my pc. Havent even turned it on yet. What should I do at this point to make sure I dont fry anything?

After that should I install my OS right away? I have it USB ready.

Heres my system

If your finished building it just plug It in, turn it on, and install the OS. Though considering I'm 16 hours late in sure you've already done that.
