Alright, so I installed my CPU. You know the I guess, metal case that goes over it? And then the lever thats there to lock it in place? Well, it's resisting. Like when I put the metal case down, it goes in perfectly, however, when I put the lever down afterwards it gets stuck. If I put them both down at the same time with the lever underneath the metal case then it gets stuck halfway through. Nothing is broken, but something is just making it stick. Help??

What cpu are you installing?
What motherboard?

Did the metal thing (heatsink?) come with the cpu?

What type of socket is it?

Just look for YT vids on how to install your type of socket and CPU.

I assume it's an Intel socket. You're supposed to slip the metal cover under the screw that holds it down, then push the lever down. It will take a good amount of force to push the lever down.
