Quote:Ummm, U don't rotate the cpu, the notches are 90degrees off.That's the whole purpose of cutting the tabs off in the socket. Socket 775 has notches top & bottom to fitt 775 cpu's, and socket 771 has them on the left and right. After cutting the tabs off,and placing the sticker on the 771 cpu, place the cpu in the socket with the gold tri-angle in the BOTTOM LEFT corner of the socket. That tri-angle goes in THAT corner no matter if you are using the 771 cpu or switching back to a 775 (C2D,C2Q)cpu. That's your ck mark now that tabs are gone.
