  • In your BIOS, find and release microcode for any low-end CPU you would never use. Then add one with profile that matches this laptop CPU. With all instructions and registers patched, your system will boot correctly. Note: Microcode must come from laptop using same chipset as your desktop motherboard. If anything goes wrong, don't panic. Drop back in your old CPU, reset BIOS, and try again. Also, your motherboard will not support power saving speed-step features only for laptops. Why should it? There's no battery.

  • Linus you should have a torque screwdriver (like a torque wrench but a screwdriver) for stuff like this. I use one to install EPYC CPUs in servers as is recommended by AMD. It will allow you to accurately and consistently set your hold down pressure with this type of CPU retention.
