    I agree, I wish I had seen this before I spent 20 minutes and having to expend all my strength on screw 2 to get my CPU installed. I watched other videos and knew about not torquing down any screw, and just tightening them first but no video I saw had screw #2 not catching at all and the fix was to push down with a ton of pressure which is very unnerving.

    On my 5th board and the socket had no issue (just needed 2 fingers worth of strength) the first 4 were horrible I felt like I was trying to bend the metal into place I'm pretty positive its a foxconn QA issue

    My Lotes did the same. So it effects both.

    This might help

    I had posted a thread in this post how it took me 20+ minutes to install my ThreadRipper CPU on my build. It took all my strength (200 lbs) to get screw #2 to catch which was very unnerving. I recently had to troubleshoot a bios post issue and ASUS tech told me to reseat the CPU and clear the CMOS. I was very skeptical to do this because of the horror show the first time. Since my PC was dead in the water I decided to give it a try.

    What I did is not use the supplied ThreadRipper screwdriver to start, I used my heavy ratcheting screwdriver because the handle is bigger and heavier and I can apply a bit let force without pushing with all my weight. When I did this I was able to get all 3 screws to catch in less than a minute. I did NOT use this screwdriver to tighten the screws I did use the ThreadRipper one to torque down the screws. This was a much better experience.
