Assembling pc processor

The processor is the engine of the computer. The execution times of the various applications depend on it.

In particular, a high working frequency is indicated in video editing applications that have to process a huge amount of data.

Do not underestimate the cache, the internal memory of the processor, which is much faster than the system ram memory, speeds up the PC considerably if it is larger.

It is the component responsible for data processing. Determinants are the working frequency and internal cache memory.

Technically it is a digital electronic component formed by transistors enclosed in one or more integrated circuits.

The processor operates at a speed (frequency) expressed in MHz (megahertz), obviously the higher the frequency the faster the system.

To proceed with the assembly of the processor, the motherboard must first have the right type of socket (socket) for the make and type of processor.

We then proceed by lowering the processor perpendicularly from above, making the pins match the corresponding holes present on the socket on the motherboard.

Particular care must be taken to make the feet coincide with the holes so that they do not bend and for this purpose we recommend proceeding with the utmost delicacy.

Once the processor is positioned, simply lock it with the locking lever present and fix the heat sink above, supplied with the processor in some cases or purchased separately.
