Lga775pin Lever Expectancy Lifespan?

Hi i just obtained a ASUS P5Q DELUXE MOBO, coupled with a Q9450. After reading some online post through other websites, i've found out that some the lever for securing the processor to the motherboard has a stipulated amount of times it can be used. After the stipulated amounted, the manufacturer cannot assure the user that the CPU would be functioning under normal circumstances. By the way the number of times - 20 times? How true is it and to what extend? Hope to hear from you guys soon thank you.

I've replaced chips in motherboards well over 20 times so far. Maybe even close to 40 times. No visible damage as yet.

Must have swapped the cpu on my IP35 Pro 10-15 times, and its still strong as it was when I put it in the 1st time.

Everything will break if you stress it enough but it shouldn't be a concern.

If that is going to happen then good thing you kept your motherboard reciept coz it needs to be RMAed
A mod changed my signature because it was too big. Tutt-tutt

Where are you getting this? Load of BS anyway. They would design the lever better than that anyway.
