How to Change a Processor in a Desktop Computer


This video shows you how to change the processor in your desktop computer.
One thing that is very important before you buy a processor is that it’s from the same brand: AMD or Intel. also make sure the socket type is the same as your old processor as well. If it is not then it will not fit in the motherboard. The Key thing to remember is that the Socket type has to match the Motherboard and the Processor. Also when applying the paste use very little. Apparently at the time of this tutorial I knew it was necessary but I didn’t understand the function of the paste. it’s used to transfer the heart from your processor to your heat-sink. Your computer will not work properly without the paste.
