CPU

The modern day CPU has hundreds of little round contacts around the bottom surface, as seen in the top image. These contact with pins on the motherboard, inside a socket specially designed for the CPU. Each motherboard has a specific socket type, and only CPU's of that socket type are compatible with that board.
