I just bought a used Gigabyte GA-7ZMMH motherboard (revison 2.0) with socket A, and an Athlon XP2000 CPU, which came packaged separately.
In the centre of the CPU socket (in the square hole), there is a metal strip which is bent over so it looks like a spring clip thing. I think it is the CPU temperature sensor. (I have no documentation for this motherboard).
My queston is this:
When i fit the CPU, should this sensor actually touch the underside of the CPU or not?
Thanks to anyone who can help
