Hi was hoping one of you guys could advise me with a small issue i appear to have found myself in...
Sorting out my partners PC and it needs a new mobo (or so my techs tell me) so i dutifully get on dabs, do a quick Cross ref and order mother board.
It get's here i start swapping bits out only to find its teh wrong socket correct size just 2 tiny bits of plastic (Alignment markers i presume) are about 2 mm out of place to fit in the chip
this is the motherboard http://www.dabs.com/products/asus-p8...matx-81X1.html
Can only assume there is another socket type that i am not aware of or something
Many thanks in advance
