I have trouble with installing the i5 into the CPU slot given with the P8P67 LE. It fits perfectly, with notch and all, but I cannot get it to lock into place withe the bar without having these tabs (see picture) pushing into the CPU, and having the cover slide forward.
Is the board defective or should I just push harder for it to fit in place? The notches are creaking and the chip does not seem to like me pushing it down like that.
you need a bit of force when it comes to closing the 1155 lever thing.It isnt the same as AMD processors.But try to apply as little force as necessary.The first time i did this i had a scary crunching sound.
I did this.You could ask other members first for their opinion.
