Hey building my first build C2D, e6750, and putting it into a gigabyte p35 dsr3
When i drop the C2d in the slot, all seems to fit good, and i think im doing it correctly, until i have to put that latch thing down...to secure it in, its hard to do, and i think its bending the little connectors on the MOBO, cause i stoped midway once frightened and looks at them, and i think they were bending. Is this normal? or are they supposed to recess and go down when the C2D is placed on them.
Did you remove the temporary plastic insert from the CPU slot? Are the two notches in the CPU lined up with the two notches on the CPU slot? If so, it's sitting correctly. Maybe try a different angle on the latch then slid over to lock it.
