Title: System for attaching cartridge-type CPU to a board

Abstract: The system provided attaches a cartridge-type central processor unit (CPU) to a motherboard and includes a first device, a second device and a third device. The first device has a slot for receiving the cartridge-type CPU. The second device is disposed below the motherboard to fortify the strength of the motherboard. The third device functions to attach the first device and the motherboard to the second device. The weight of the cartridge-type CPU, via the first device and the third device, is substantially transferred to the second device with the second device being a primary carrier of weight of the cartridge-type CPU. Since weight of the cartridge-type CPU is not carried by the motherboard, motherboard will experience no damage.
