>rtfm next time.
story of my life...
>boot it up
>this motherboard is not compatible with i5 2500k
hence why i was replacing the socket cover

>> No.50790203

Shiiit man that happened to me too to a board that I wanted to RMA but after bending the pins that was not an option anymore. Thanks for reminding me OP

>> No.50790266

You're welcome, taking a quick look at google it seems that a lot of people make the same mistake.

>> No.50790295

Motherboards based pins are much easier to break than the ones that were on CPUs.

>> No.50791749

Get the fuck out.

LGA is so so much better than PGA.

I don't understand how people can fucking break their socket with LGA, OP must be a fucking retard, if it doesn't have a CPU in it, put the fucking cover on it. Done. Fucking boggles my mind.

>> No.50791786

Kek. Switched from AMD my entire life to intel the other week, I put my CPU in the mobo
>Oh fuck
I spergged out for 30minutes on google and realized that's what is supposed to happen.

>> No.50791849


Why can't we just return to slots for the motherboard/CPU. My PIII 450mhz installation was so easy.
