2.23 Installing the Processor and Heatsink
Your Tiger i7501R S2735 supports the latest processor technologies from Intel. Check the
following page on TYAN's website for latest processor support:
The following diagrams will detail how to install your processor(s):
The processors you choose to use may not look exactly like the one pictured above, nor
will the socket look exactly the same. The diagram is provided as a visual guide to help
you install socket processors.
1. Lift the lever on the socket until it is approximately 130
or as far back as
possible to the socket.
Align the processor with the socket. There are keys underneath the processor
just like on memory modules to ensure that they insert the correct way.
3. Seat the processor firmly into the socket by gently pressing down until the
processor sits flush with the socket.
Place the socket lever back down until it snaps into place.
Your processor is installed.
Repeat these steps for the second processor if you are using two processors.
NOTE: If using only one CPU, it must be installed in CPU1 socket.
After you are done installing the processor(s), you should proceed to installing their
heatsinks. Heatsinks will ensure that the processors do not overheat and continue to
operate at maximum performance for as long as you own them. Overheated processors
may damage the motherboard.
Because there are many different types of heatsinks available from many different
manufacturers, a lot of them have their own method of installation. For the safest method
of installation and information on choosing the appropriate heatsink, please refer to Intel's
website at http://www.intel.com.
