the gold arrow on the green pcb points at the memory in the lower left corner

the triangle on the mobo white socket lines up with the gold one

the 2 slots will align with the notches

hold the cpu with 2 fingers
index on top
thumb on the bottom
slide the cpu in the left side and lay it down towards the memory

the gold triange will be to the right of your tumb

There are the two tabs on the sides of the socket which fit into the two cutouts on the sides of the CPU and it only fits one way.
