oMotherboard bus, processor, and memory settings should be adjusted to matchthe overclock speed.oOverclocking may require more voltage.oOverclocking often increases heat output. For this reason, it may be necessaryto upgrade your cooling devices.When choosing a motherboard, you need to ensure that the board is compatible with the systemCPU that you intend to use.Your motherboard has a socket that accepts the processor. The processor socket on themotherboard must match the socket type used by the processor. Some motherboards supportmultiple processors and will have a socket for each one.Processor sockets can be categorized according to how the processor makes contact with theleads in the processor socket.Pin Grid Array (PGA): PGA processors implement a series of pins on the underside of theprocessor package in an array. The pins are inserted into corresponding receptacleswithin the processor socket on the motherboard.Land Grid Array (LGA): The LGA socket moves the connecting pins from the processorpackage to the socket itself. Conducting pads are implemented on the bottom of theprocessor that contact the protruding pins from the processor socket.Some commonly-implemented processor sockets include the following:Intel:o775: Used with the Intel Pentium 4, Celeron D, Intel Pentium 4 ExtremeEdition, Pentium D, Pentium Dual-Core, Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Extreme, Core 2Quad, Xeon, and Celeron processors.
o1155: Used with the Intel Pentium 4, Celeron, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, Corei7 Extreme, and Xeon processors.o1156: Used with the Intel Pentium 4, Celeron, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, andXeon processors.o1366: Used with the Intel Celeron, Core i7, and Xeon processors.o1150: Used with the Intel Celeron Dual-Core, Pentium Dual-Core, Core i3,Core i5, Core i7, Core i7 Extreme, and Xeon processors.o2011: Used with the Intel Core i7 and Xeon processors.AMD:oAM3: Used with the AMD Phenom II, Athlon II, Sempron, and Opteronprocessors.oAM3+: Used with the AMD Phenom II, Athlon II, Sempron, and Opteronprocessors.oFM1: Used with the AMD Athlon II processor along with the A-series APUs.oFM2: Used with the AMD A4 series, A6 series, A8 series, A10 series, AthlonX2, Athlon X4, FirePro, and Sempron processors.oFM2+: Used with the AMD A4 series, A6 series, A8 series, A10 series, AthlonX2, and Athlon X4 processors.Installing a ProcessorIn this lesson, we are going to walk through the process of installing a CPU in amotherboard. Now before we begin, there are a couple of things you need to do toprepare for the installation process. Really, the first thing you need to do, is make sureyou take an adequate electrostatic discharge prevention measures. For example, you haveto use a static mat. And you need to be clipped to that static mat. Now the reason this isso important, is because CPUs are made up of very dense small components, andtherefore it takes very little static discharge to damage a CPU. And there is nothing worsethan going out and spending a lot of money on a brand-new mother board, and a brandnew CPU, only to find out that you fried it when you were trying to install it.
