Get the fuck out.
LGA is so so much better than PGA.
I don't understand how people can fucking break their socket with LGA, OP must be a fucking retard, if it doesn't have a CPU in it, put the fucking cover on it. Done. Fucking boggles my mind.
Kek. Switched from AMD my entire life to intel the other week, I put my CPU in the mobo
