I am building my first PC and  right at the start I have problems when putting my processor ( i7 6950x extreme edition) into my mother board ( Asus rampage v 10 edition).
I put the processor with the triangle design matching the triangle design on the mobo, but when I want to close  the socket, the little metal bars are really though to pull down and I

am  scared of breaking something.
I am have the same processor and mobo as the guy on this video  :  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_k796yRjTk&list=PLFKzzXSLzVjjZVQ3gDzlxLzdzueV7tW6i&index=3&t=68s


I know the guy on the video just put  the thing like nothing I find my mobo's socket really hard to close.

Any ideas?

Thanks you very much for your time.

The CPU and Socket will be fine, as long as you insert the CPU correctly and push the right arm down first and then the second arm. If Linus's Son can do it then you sure can too !
