Quick! Need help with Intel 1155 cpu latch

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys i got in on the 2550k deal at microcenter and need help installing it.

I was just wondering if its normal that theres a ton of resistance from the latch AFTER placing the cpu in. I'm scared I might bend pins, and b4 u ask, its in properly as the notches only fit one way.

update: nvm got impatient checked on utube and did it!
can't believe the latch so much harder to set than for AMD.

I agree, it feels like u might break it as much pressure as u need to put down, just make sure the processor's two notches fit the ones on the socket and u are fine.
