    Dear Mr. icyroad41, Just transfer the ROM file in your SD card, and any patches if required. And do the following:-

    1.Factory reset in cwm
    2.wipe cache partition
    3.wipe dalvik cache
    4.Format /system (in mounts and storage)
    5.Format /cache
    6.Format /Data
    7.Install Custom_ROM.zip (Where Custom_ROM is the name of your Custom Rom.. lol)
    8.Install patch for your phone model
    9.Reboot now and you are done !

    After flashing let the phone settle down for 1 hour at least before starts to play with it
