comment Trouble installing an AMD CPU to socket G34 motherboard
thanks for the answer, I closed down the clamp and it didn't break anything. With the cost of the chip and motherboard combo I think I lost my nerve :)

@Ramhound I'm actually not sure of the source, I just got handed all the parts :) Interesting point though thank you.

Just to follow up the last picture the latch is at 90 degrees to the motherboard I realise now that may not be obvious from the picture.

@Ramhound thanks for the input I know its a socket G34 chip and a socket G34 motherboard. But I've installed CPUs before and everything tells me if I close the lever to secure the chip in the socket that the retention clamp will damage the CPU. PS: The last picture the latch is not locked, I am afraid to do so as I feel it will damage the CPU.
