Intel Core2 Q6600 CPU (Updated)



Installing these CPU’s (Socket 775) is actually a lot different than installing say a 939, 754, or 478 CPU.  With Intel making the jump from pins to pads, there is also a new mounting method to accommodate the transition.  On the CPU socket there is a lever, once unlocked you are able to lift up a metal plate that has a hole in the middle.  Orient your CPU the right way and place it down on the brushes you then flip the ‘pressure plate’ down over the top.  To secure the plate and the CPU down you must push very hard to secure the metal lever that latches the CPU and the plate down.  After the CPU is locked down, place your thermal paste on the CPU and the pop the four pins down into the holes on the motherboard of your cooler.  Pretty basic, though I was surprised at how much force was required to latch the CPU into the socket.
