Too much fun to install an LGA 775 CPU?

Anyone have a horror story about installing a pinless Socket LGA 775 processor into its pinned socket? Just curious because I don't have the world's steadiest hands.

Just throw it in the socket, you should see the little guidance on both sides and then push the lever down. That's all !

Advice: you may consider not having any coffee that day

Maybe I've overestimated the precision needed to install an LGA 775 processor. Dunno... P4's are mighty small with LOTS of pins. Other than extreme overclocking ability, I still don't see much advantage in going Prescott versus Northwood. Some folks don't care about OCing. Hard to believe, I admit.
