NOTICE: To ensure maximum cooling for the microprocessor, do not touch the
heat transfer areas on the microprocessor thermal-cooling assembly. The oils in
your skin reduce the heat transfer capability of the thermal pads.
3. Remove the microprocessor thermal-cooling assembly.
NOTICE: When removing the microprocessor module, pull the module straight
up. Be careful not to bend the pins on the microprocessor module.
4. To loosen the ZIF socket, use a small, flat-blade screwdriver and rotate the ZIFsocket cam screw counterclockwise until it comes to the cam stop.
The ZIF-socket cam screw secures the microprocessor to the system board. Take
note of the arrow on the ZIF-socket cam screw.
5. Use a microprocessor extraction tool to remove the microprocessor module.
Replacing the Microprocessor Module
NOTICE: Ensure that the cam lock is in the fully open position before seating
the microprocessor module. Seating the microprocessor module properly in the
ZIF socket does not require force.
NOTICE: A microprocessor module that is not properly seated can result in an
intermittent connection, or permanent damage to the microprocessor and ZIF
socket.
1. Align the pin-1 corner of the microprocessor module with the pin-1 corner of the
ZIF socket, and insert the microprocessor module.
NOTE: The pin-1 corner of the microprocessor module has a triangle that aligns
with the triangle on the pin-1 corner of the ZIF socket.
NOTICE: You must position the microprocessor module correctly in the ZIF
socket to avoid permanent damage to the module and the socket.

When the microprocessor module is correctly seated, all four corners are aligned
at the same height. If one or more corners of the module are higher than the
others, the module is not seated correctly.
NOTICE: Hold the microprocessor down while turning the cam screw to prevent
intermittent contact between the cam screw and microprocessor.
