what do u mean different? it should be a 1155 socket. Keep in mind, ASrock just puts together the motherboards-the actual CPU socket may be made by a different company, and its possible they used a different brand of socket in your motherboard then they did in the display picture, but a 1155 CPU should still fit. However, in your top picture, correct me if Im wrong-but Im not seeing any pins, is there any type of protective cover over them, are they missing, or is it just the picture?
