Tomorow I will be buying a Socket 775 Mobo and cpu, and I have read the instructions from intel as well as other sites such as hardwarezone. I have a few questions:
Some say to remove plastic cover first, before lifting load plate, while others recomend after. Does it mater.
Intell recomend removeing plastic cover on the hing side, other recomend on the sides.
Some say to gently hold the load plate before lifting the lever to prevent the lad plate from snaping back in a mouse trap style and bending pins. Anyone have experince with this socket?
They say it requires some force to secure the lever after the processor has been seated, I hope it is not alot.
hardware zone says cpu will fit snugly into socket when placed, do I put any force, or just verticle movement and release?
