Hi,

Can someone tell me what the distance is (mm) from the top of the PCB to the top of the mounted CPU, on a LGA775 mobo ???

Thanks

you guys are all missing the point.
He wants the distance between the top of the PCB, the surface of the motherboard and the surface of the CPU, so the height of the socket above the motherboard.
I had a quick look on the Intel specs and couldn't find anything. You would be best measuring it yourself, all sockets are made to the same designs so should be the same distance.

Its 4cm on my old gigabyte 915 motherboard. If its the same, then 4cm it is.

If I'm thinking right, it's not 4cm for sure. 4cm suggests that you have a socket that's about 3.8cm high. Not true.

He wants the height of the cpu above the motherboard. eg on this image the distance (HEIGHT) between the lettering '860' and the surface of the motherboard.

No pun intended.
I just measured on my socket 478 motherboard, I know they aren't identical but the sizes are roughly the same (in terms of heights), that's less than 3mm tall socket only, around 5mm with the cpu installed.

It's nowhere near a centimetre.

Didn't have a ruler handy and approximated with sight, then 5mm it is, since the capacitors next to the socket are 5mm's too.
