Default Intel's LGA 775: There's no conspiracy, folks

Part IV Put away your tin foil hats

THERE ARE a few other details that made the '***** rounds', and cost is by far the most prevalent one of them. The cost of a LGA775 socket is in the $3-5 range compared to about $1 for a s478 socket. While that may seem to be a huge step up, s478 was similar in cost at first, and ratcheted down. In fact all new sockets cost a premium at introduction, and as time goes on, volume ramps, and manufacturing improves, costs go down. LGA775 sockets will not stay up in this price range forever, count on it.

The last problem is the more nebulous one, that LGA775 is a true conspiracy in the 'CIA is beaming microwaves into my skull to make my bed-wetting worse' vein (here). The theory goes that Intel made these fragile, almost self-destructive sockets for no reason other than to shift returns from them to the motherboard makers. Some numbers bandied about are 20% of the defective CPUs returned to Intel are bent pins, and those 20% will no longer be Intel's problem.
