    Ha good, I thought it would be strange to put tape over the pins rather than the nice flat contact points of the CPU, and I've never done this before myself, so I wanted to make sure Huniken was not getting the wrong end of the stick - and then praps ending up with a messed up CPU socket!

    It does make sense, putting tape over the pins, Yikes! Yeah, just the contact point, 2 well placed Kapton tape tiny patches should be good.

    Hang on man, what are you saying!! You put the tape on the CPU, not the pins of the socket - that's what I was trying to clarify with everyone here.

    Yeah, I know what are you saying, those pins are very delicate on the MOBO, when I was posting back then, I had a mind jam, derp...was thinking CPU had the pins LOL!!!!. So YIKES! I don’t want to bend any of them.

    Sorry but work and life took a toll on me, yeah, you are correct :)

    Those pads are too small to cover....can I just plug in the processor?

    I’m waiting for that special magnifying tool to arrive in the post, but until then I just want to try it....

    Up to you I tried in my p870dmg with no covered pads and that worked flawlessly although the cpu heated up very quickly.

    Not even. The reason the pins need to be covered are because they could fry the motherboard socket pins. No one knows what those pins do but the last thing you want is the motherboard going dead.
