Processor Installation Video for the LGA1155 and LGA1156 Sockets
This video demonstrates the installation process for Intel® Processors based on the LGA1155 and LGA1156 sockets. Visit Intel® Processor Installation Center for more information on other desktop processors.
This installation video refers to the installation of LGA1156 socket processors and fan-heatsinks. These instructions also apply to LGA1155-based processors due to the similarity between the installation processes. The boxed fan-heatsink installation is the same for both sockets since the fan-heatsink footprint is the same.
LGA1156-based processors and LGA1155-based processors are not compatible between sockets due to electrical, mechanical, and keying differences.
