I ordered a cpu upgrade for my acer aspire 5349, from a celeron to an i3. I didnt check the supported hardware but it looks like i lucked out because the i3 i ordered is one of the 3 that work in it, good thing i spent all night learning about sockets and architecture, close one. Anyways, i watched a disassembly video so im confident i can get the old cpu out. Now heres my problem, how the fuck do i put the new cpu in? push it and it clips in like ram does? I heard something about a lever before...and what about thermal paste, do i just rub that shit in there like butter or do i do a fucking dollop like daisy?

okay, so, with a cpu, you have to treat it like the skull of a newborn baby. too much pressure, not gentle enough, and you have permanent brain damage.

This is how to replace the thermal paste.

You are playing with very expensive legos, be gentle, be patient, google is your friend, use it the instant you run into something, look for a video tutorial or a forum post (on a tech site) to fully understand what is going on before you proceed.

The only thing that makes somebody proficent in IT is googling EVERYTHING about what may be going on. (if you want to get a job you actually need to go to college and get a piece of paper that verifies your knowledge)

So google things! Read!

Good luck <3
