Before answering your question, I would like to confirm if you refer to a specific processor model; if so, please let me know the exact model of the unit you are asking for.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Because i5-10500E in ARK ordering information have 2 different type with FC-LGA14A and FC-LGA14C, I want to know what's different with these 2 CPU socket type?
Intel site search finds nothing for LGA14A.
Thank you for posting on the Intel️® communities.
We will move your question to the correct subforum, the team in charge will get back to you soon.

Hello, @RSun ,
The information I have received is that the difference between FC-LGA14A and FC-LG14C is directly related to the stepping of the processor.
As you can see on the following page: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/203893/intel-core-i510500e-processor-12m-cache-...
This site can explain the FCLGA acronym: https://sites.google.com/site/tvcccis111ch0283/home/assignment-2-motherboards/processor-sockets
Have searched the ark page and thousands of pages of datasheets and there is no reference to LGA14.
On the contrary, page 13 of the processor datasheet volume 1 specifically refers to LGA1200 as a package type and not just a socket type.
The processor is available in the following packages:
• A 46 mm x 24 mm BGA package (BGA1528) for U-Processor Line
• A 28 mm x 42mm BGA package (BGA1440) for H-Processor Line
• A 37.5 mm x 37.5 mm LGA package (LGA1200) for S-Processor Line"
Amazing that there is no official mention anywhere google can find.
