Intel’s original Socket 775 for the latest breed of the Pentium and Celeron series processors has received certain amount of criticism from mainboard makers as well as end-users for numerous problems. But a maker of sockets from Taiwan believes it had tackled all the issues with its newly designed Socket 775.

The new Socket 775, which is also referred as Socket T, developed by Sun King Technology has patented terminals and built-in retractable spring cover that provides complete bent-pin protection for the Intel Pentium 4 in LGA775 packaging, according to the company’s statement located on DigiTimes web-site. The four-screw metal supporting bracket mounted on the reverse side of PC board can resolve the existing board bending (bowing) issue during the board design phase, and assure accurate pressure contact and alignment to the circuit pad directly, while the CPU is driven into the “lock” position by the lever loading mechanism.

In addition, the new LGA775 socket design focuses on overcoming existing bent-pin issues, which will help to answer the return materials authorization (RMA) issues among PC makers. The maintenance free main body housing is fully replaceable by PC service centers.

While numerous companies blamed Intel Corp. and its socket partner Foxconn for unreliable Socket 775 design, it is unclear whether the actual return rate of mainboards with Socket T because of socket issues is much higher compared to that of Socket 478 mainboards.
