How to install a x5670 on a DL360 G6?

Hi everyone,

So here is a newby question for you guys;

I need to install a x5670 processor into a DL360 G6; before buying it I checked the G6 specs but now that I have it I can't seem to figure out on how to install I am not sure if I am missing something or if I bought a wrong CPU.

My actual issue is that the processor seems to float on the socket when put over it? Its footprint seems to be smaller than the socket itself....

What am I doing wrong? Do I need a tool or something else? Etc.

Thanks in advance

Note: I installed some 5470 on some G5 and had no issues..
