MERGED QUESTIONQuestion from roudy-s : "is it ok to wiggle the cpu befor the arm is closed?"
hello guys i have a question and need your help i have installed my cpu in place and i have made some wiggle before closing the arm the wiggle is up and down to be sure that it has fitted right so i have wiggled it a bit and leave it but the wiggle was up and down and i leave it down not up i mean there is a golden arrow on the front or up of the cpu and i wiggled it down or under the arrow like this -cpu> - cpu> -cpu > where > is the arrow and - is the socket and cpu is my cpu i have made the wiggle like 2 times only and leave it but beside of the arrow way like this -cpu >
is this ok or should i move it to the arrow? and you know the socket is very small so there is no gaps but i want to make sure that when i close the arm will it put the cpu where it should be and thank you.
they only really seat in one way. Wiggling is not necessary. If you have wiggled, I'd remove the CPU and make sure none of the pins on the mobo are bent.
yea there should be a triangle to let you no what way the cpu is seated
the cpu is seated well but i want to know if wiggling will then put the cpu in place
and how to know if pins are bent?
Some technicians do this to make sure that it is sitting flush in the CPU socket. It is not 100% necessary. This applies to LGA Intel processors only and do not do this to AMD processors as the pins are on the CPU. The socket latch mechanism most of the time ensures the CPU is connected to the pins.
If you've bent pins in the CPU or socket, the PC will generally fail to boot or fail a very short while into use.
i have booted the pc and played games for about 2 hours and the temp never go over 58 while gaming my main answer is should i push the cpu after wiggling toward the arrow or it will take place where it should be after the retention arm is closed
