Default Processor alignment

How do you know the correct alignment when placing a processor into the socket of the mobo? I know on the processor itself there are 2 missing pins that tells me Orientation indicator but what do I look for in the socket so I know to align it with the indecator?

the marked corner of the processor should be on the same side as the lever and at the end opposite the levers hinge
