The link to the picture is at the very bottom.

Sorry to ask here. But I asked here because I did not see another triangle to match the sockets. I wanna be 100 percent sure before I hook everything up and turn on this computer.

This is an old Dell Dimension E510, with a Pentium D 775 socket.

The picture is below. I think it is on correctly because the processor's corner with the triangle is with the socket corner that has a cut off corner. I just thought that made sense. But I am not entirely sure. I made a foolish mistake to not take a look at the processor inside before this one.

This is my first time dealing with a CPU take it easy on me please.

Of course I know I have to put the thermal compound on and than the heat sink back.

Looks fine to me...that's the cutoff corner. You need to do something about all that dust though, preferably before seating the cpu. Use some compressed air.
