      I'm totally with you both on it being easy, but you would be shocked at how many of our returns are due to bent motherboard pins (or on the CPU if AMD).

        That's a real issue as that isn't covered under warranty. It really sucks. These 'tools' won't help the actual tools who are installing the CPU though.

          I've just watched it with sound and he is saying that it just fits under the retention arm and apparently fits any mobo, they designed it to not interfere with anything apparently?

          Does worry me that something like this is neccesary, I mean i'm no pro at building rigs but its not hard to install a CPU

            They'll just drop it putting it in the plastic bracket instead

              Wonder if has any impact on heat dissipation of CPU? I mean people delid and polish for a few degrees, would this extra plastic have any effect even if only a few *C?

                Just seen an absolute massacre of a socket, like someone had took a pen and drawn a circle round the entire socket, trail of pin desecration.

                  It would be pretty interesting to see if it has an effect but it looks like it just goes in the same place as the retention bracket would anyway, although I would have thought that would place slightly more pressure on the cpu? Has anybody actually how thin these are in person?
