Now, I've watched plenty of videos on how to build your system, and the Newegg one is very informative and the one I was watching at the time of building my computer. Anyways, I went to put my CPU into my motherboard, (YES, STEP FUCKING 1) and noticed there was A LOT more resistance when putting the arm down. Like, A LOT. Not just "Oh man, it's pushing back slightly, better back out." As in like, it was at a 90degree angle and would not go further unless I pushed with enough force to snap the mobo in half, which I have no plans of doing. Before I head back to the computer store and ask them what the issue is, any idea here?
Yes, it was put in correctly.
At least I'm assuming so. I did it the way the Paul from newegg TV said to do, and it really only goes in one way because of how it lines up.
