    I have a motherboard that's like this:


    Where the CPU is accessed by lifting a metal pole. One day I decided to practise to see how easy it is to replace it. I put the CPU back in making sure the notches and everything is correct and when I pushed the metal pole down, I heard this unnerving snap noise. Is this meant to be normal? Sorry for such a newbiw question.

    depending on the snap. it could have just been you locking the cpu to the motherboard.
