    Do you or he have an aversion to CPU-Z?

    I guess you could find a picture of each socket online and then open up your computer to look at it.

    Hmm. Can he extract other stuff? What OS does he have?

    Also, it might say it on the side of the socket. That's how it is with my old socket 7 motherboards anyway :D
