Installing an Intel LGA2011 Processor

PCSTATS will assume you have a socket LGA2011 motherboard and processor at hand, both still in their boxes. For this Beginners Guide we'll be using an Intel Core i7 3820 processor and a Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 motherboard .

Step 1: Remove the socket LGA2011 motherboard from its box and protective packaging. Place the antistatic bag or foam mat under the motherboard to protect it, then place both on a table with good light so you can get to work.

First thing's first, open the CPU socket. To do this, press down on the metal lever arm marked with a (1) and an unlocked lock symbol (we'll call this the first lever arm from now on), then pull it away from the socket to release the catch. (see below).

Release this lever arm first.

There are two metal lever arms on the LGA2011 socket, the second metal lever arm is in the opposite corner and cannot be unclipped first. The second lever arm is marked with a (1) and a locked lock symbol. (see below)

(The second lever arm. This catch cannot be released first...)

After the first metal lever arm is released, the second can be unclipped.

Un clip the second metal lever arm now, by pressing down and pulling it away from the socket to release the catch.
