    the new lga 775 socket fragility solution?

    ok i keep reading about how fragile the new intel socket is going to be and now apparantly is only good for 20 or so insertions of the cpu , so i asked my self surely it would be possible to put a spacer thingy over the the pins to stop them bending?

    ----------|
    ::::::::::::|
    ::::::::::::| <-top view, holes for pins
    ::::::::::::|
    ----------|


    ===|===|====|====|====|====|=== <- side on view with spacers to keep off of floor

    now i dont know if this would work as i cant find a close up shot of the socket and i dont know the dimensions of the socket but in theory ive got a good idea right

    Well, in theory it would work. We can't be sure for certain though because Intel might have something up their sleeves they arn't showing us. That is a very stupid decision by Intel though, could be very un popular. Seems like a new way to extract money from us though. We insert it 20 times and it becomes useless and we have to buy a new one.
    Bring on AMD, they got sense!

    Current CPUs are only supposidly good for 20 insertions and you have to insert them straight - same with LGA775.

    hmm 20 insertions, saying that I bet most people will upgrade their motherboard after about the 5th processor upgrade

    I've taken athlons out way more than that - not dealt with opterons or 64's though.

    Socket's should be robust and easy to work with IMO.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    I agree, when you buy something this expensive you don't want to be told you can only take it out 20 times. It's like telling you that you can only read a book 20 times (well, sorta)

    You have to reemember... would you prefer to break a 100 quid mobo or a 500 quid EE CPU?



    Also remember we are not 'normal' computer users... most OEMs build PC's/

    Id prefer not to brake either, not sure how the 20 insertion would be enforced as a warranty claws. Im sure there will be someone out there that could do the same damage with only 1 or 2 attempts.

    Poor engineering, poor planning, poor Intel.

    Indeed, i'd prefer to break my mobo. Would much prefer not to break it though. We shall see when the boards get into use. As long as the socket remains zero insertion force thats ok. If it becomes a partial insertion force or something other thats when it becomes problematic
