If it isn't in perfect... expect your CPU to overheat and shutdown within 5-30s. I've seen it a few dozen times. It really isn't that hard.... Take the motherboard out of the case and do it if you have that many issues.
Once again...

make sure when your pushing in the pins you do a cross pattern, like lug nuts on a car. push one in until its fully in, popped. then go to the opposite corner, after you get that corner it doesnt matter which one you go to, they will both be easier.

just be patient, and im sure it would be much easier to do if the motherboard wasnt installed already.

I give up sorry, I don't have the patience for this stuff, I'm buying a dell and calling it a day.

Taking both the motherboard and processor back. This has taken over 2 hours with no luck.

I'm done.

I will stop trying and assume the cpu fan is dead, no power to the heatsink at all, everything else works except the cpu fan.

I will wait till Friday when the New aftermarket heatsink comes in, if that doesn't work then I will have to RMA this motherboard.

Dell's are good for a casual user and at this point in my life, I'm more of a casual user. It's just my curiosity for gadgets brought me to this forum but when I stop and think about it, I have much other important things to handle than overclocking and the fastest computer.

I will see if I can get it working on friday.

Could have been faulty push pins. Bent or warped in the manufacturing process you know...

The pins seem fine but if the heatsink isn't installed all the way in shoulddn't it still power on?
