Intel has been working to reduce LGA socket damage for the industry. The socket contacts are fragile and can be easily damaged if touched.
Example of a bent contact on an LGA socket:
Intel has developed tools to provide consistent, controlled motions for inserting and removing socket covers and processors on Intel® Server Boards.
There are tools available for these socket types:
- LGA1366 HEDT
- LGA1366 server
Refer to the product guide or technical product specification for your server board to identify the type of socket it uses.
Intel is working with CCI to manufacture and distribute these tools. Contact CCI to place tool orders (even prior to tool release) using the part numbers listed below.
