Socket 1155 broken pins

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello, so I ordered a Gigabyte H67-UD3H and I haven't played with anything since Q66 G0 days.

I wonder, what did I do wrong during CPU installation that it destroyed a pin, and the processor has scrapes on the side of the IHS now.

I was never able to full lock the CPU inside. I matched it up to the sides like I'm supposed to but it just wouldn't lock in. I'm getting a new board tomorrow, any ides?

You lined up the notches, right? Could have been a manufacturer fault on the socket or proc. Unlikely, but possible. Just make sure it's lined up and that you set the end of the proc furthest from the notches on the ledge of the socket interior first, then lower the proc into the socket with your finger or fingernail.

sounds like you just had a bit of bad luck. just be really super careful next time.

Yeah, it seemed strange... the other day I broke a s478 proc but putting it in at the wrong side and crushing off a pin from the CPU. Terrible week.

So there should be no difference in S1155 and S775 in terms of installing CPU?

I saw some picture in the manual about some screw on the side of the MB that you need to take off..???

All LGA's should be the same in terms of installing them. The notches are in different places, though.

Get a P67 board so you can overclock your cpu. The H67 limits you to plain old turbo multipliers

H series chipsets are for media minded, and the K series SandyBridge is for OC'ers; irony.

Thanks pon, this is a media processing workstation, not for OCing. I already ordered another h67 board. I need the onboard GPU.

I just was very upset about botching the installation.

Why buy the K series proc...much more expensive. I would have just gotten a 2400 and called it a day. For 185USD, you wouldn't catch me complaining. AFAIK, the instruction sets (SSE) are the same on all SB procs.

Because the k chip has a gpu that is twice as powerful as whats on the non k chips...
