Technicians will reassure you that installing a CPU on your motherboard is not rocket science. Inthis question, common sense is surely enough. You cannot lower the lever before you have lifted it, for instance, or install the cooling system before lifting the CPU!
Release lever arm, locate the position of socket, place CPU correctly, lower lever arm, install a cooling system. Not difficult now, was it?

A CPU, or central processing unit, is the electronic circuitry in a computer that performs the processing of instructions and data flow. When installing a CPU, you would first want to lift the release arm in order to be able to install the CPU.
Next, you would want to locate the orientation mark on the corner of the CPU and socket. Then you would hold the CPU by the edges and position it over the socket. Once you have it positioned correctly, you would want to lower the release lever arm, and then install the cooling system.
