Processor Installation for Intel® Core™ 13th and 12th Generation (Socket LGA1700)
This integration process for Intel® Boxed Processors is based on the LGA1700 desktop socket.
|Note||Desktop 12th Generation Intel® Processors use the LGA1700 socket and they need Intel® 600 Series Chipset motherboards to deliver the rated performance. Desktop 13th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors use the LGA1700 socket and they need Intel® Z790 Chipset motherboards to deliver the rated performance. For compatible details refer to Compatibility of 12th Generation Intel® Desktop Processors and Compatibility of 13th Generation Intel® Desktop Processors.|
Installation process for Intel® Boxed Processors based on the LGA1700 Desktop Socket
During the processor installation process, make sure the processor is seated correctly in the socket before actuating the Independent Loading Mechanism (ILM) lever. Improper installation can damage your processor and make it inoperable.
To make sure the processor is seated correctly, check for the following:
- Match the Pin 1 marker on the processor with the Pin 1 marker on the socket.
- Make sure the processor notches align correctly with the socket keying features. (Refer to Socket LGA1700 and Comparison with Socket LGA1200).
- After the processor is seated in the socket, check that all four corner heights are level.
Failure to follow the installation procedures can lead to bending of the processor package corners when the Independent Loading Mechanism (ILM) lever is actuated. Do a visual inspection to confirm the correct seating of the processor in the socket.
