Apply pressure to the LGA775 CPU

Push the lever down and away from the socket until you can fit it under its metal retention tab.

(Above: for clarity, shown with plastic cover removed)

Securing the lever under the retention tab will fasten the load plate correctly and should cause the plastic protective cover to pop loose. If it does not come loose, you can safely remove it now by pulling it away from the load plate with your finger. In either case, remove and save the plastic protective cover.

Your processor is now correctly in place and ready for heatsink installation. Before you can do this though, you should install the motherboard correctly into your computer case. If you need any help on this topic, see this PCSTATS guide on the subject.

Now it's time to install the heatsink, this isn't complicated but can be a little tricky in the confines of a dark computer case.
