That is a LIF (Low Insertion Force) socket. It means you don't need a mallet to hammer the CPU in.

are you sure that is indeed a 486 and not a socket A CPU then? :P

There were several socket types used for the '486' variety of CPU. AMD and other companies did make chipsets imitating the Intel line, but different in ratings and structure to avoid patent/copyright infringements. The socket types #1 through #4 were commonly used, with the socket having individual pin holes and no release mechanism like the Socket 5 variety and later. Insertion of the CPU was not all that hard, just ensuring it went in with all pins straight. Removal was another matter.. you needed a special "grabber" that looked like a pair of flat ice-cube tongs, or very wide, flat "fork". WIKI: CPU sockets:

:-)

yup 486. must be, thats what it says on the chip :-)

I had to lift it out bit-by-bit to prevent bending the pins (used a wide & flat edged knife) - it just seemed very "sticky" (if thats the right term).

flat-blade screwdriver works best in my personal experience. not sticky, clamped. Imagine an IDE or floppy connector, the same effect...

Just be careful. The pins are stonger then current CPUs but not indestructible.
