All modern mainstream processors are socketed rather than slotted. Faster processors may generate more heat, and may require either a larger heatsink or active cooling a heatsink with an integrated fan. Again, avoid using overclocking unless you are making an informed decision to do so. To further complicate matters, Intel ships the same processor in different variants. Many motherboard manufacturers, including top-notch ones like Intel, have a nasty habit of slipstreaming revisions. Compatibility As we explained in some detail in an earlier section, compatibility between motherboard and processor is a major issue. How small must the standard power supply have been?

Avoid excessive force when seating the processor. For example, until late our Internet gateway system was an older Celeron. This locks the processor into the socket and makes electrical contact on all pins.

Posted November 19, edited. All high-quality motherboards have information printed on the board itself d815eeaa2 identifies the manufacturer, model, and revision number.

INTEL DRIVERS MANUALS BIOS Motherboard – Mainboard

Intel manufactures processors for two similar but incompatible slots. Jan 29, Messages: Socket 5 and Socket 7 motherboards must be configured properly to support the particular processor you are installing.

With the case cover still off, apply power. Most support brackets have locking tabs at the top that will snap into place to secure the processor once it is eazton seated. In particular, the portion of the heatsink that overhangs the processor may come into contact with capacitors and other components that protrude above the motherboard.


If nothing or something strange happens, immediately turn the power off and re-verify all connections and settings.

Once you have set and verified all jumpers, lift the ZIF lever, which is located on one side of the socket, as far as it will go. These higher bus speeds are used to overclock a 60 or 66 MHz processor—running it faster than its rated speed.

For example, we have an early Slot 1 board that was designed for the cacheless Slot 1 Celeron and did not support later Slot 1 Celerons, which included embedded L2 cache. Tip For example, until late our Internet gateway system was an older Celeron.

Your name or email address: If you purchase an OEM processor with an attached fan, that package may or may not fit the standard retention mechanism although it usually does fit. To further complicate matters, Intel ships the same processor in different variants.

Good practice would have been to clean the leftover parts of the thermal pad from the processor and heatsink before proceeding, but we simply added a dollop of thermal goop, which worked fine.


Using that heatsink on a 1.

Slide the processor into the support bracket, making sure that the d815wea2 is oriented properly, as shown in Figure With Safari, you learn the way you learn best. If the retention mechanism needs to be replaced, e. There are three different physical forms of Socket processors you are likely to encounter.

Socket processors are a particular problem in this respect. Once you have the heatsink inel properly with the processor most fit properly in only one orientationalign the clip and press down until it locks into place, as shown in Figure Yes, my password is: Installing Modern Socketed Processors. The following sections describe the steps required to install a socketed processor of any type. I don’t really know abount this sort of thing.

Or should she just gut the thing?
