ASUS Created Safer CPU Installation for Their Z170 Boards
Bohs Hansen / 5 years ago
Not every user that builds PC systems is equally skilled and bent pins have been a problem on Intel motherboards for quite some time thanks to that. The research and development department at ASUS also noticed that and the amount of warranty cases they have in this regards and as a result they came up with the new CPU installation tool.
The new CPU mounting system will be available on the companies Z170 motherboard and are due to be launched very soon and that I’m sure some of our readers already have their eyes on and wallets in their hands – they do look amazing.
The new system works by placing the CPU bottom side up and sliding it into a CPU bracket first. Then that bracket is placed onto the socket before finally being secured with the ledge. With the new bracket, it’s only possible to put the CPU in the way it also fits and it should help reduce the amount of warranty cases that come in with bent pins.
ASUS Hong Kong shared this on their Facebook page without much more information, but I think we can safely assume that this new mounting system will make its way onto their entire range and not just the flagship boards.I b
