    Default Help with p4 installation

    I have a retail P4 2.53ghz chip package which has heatsync/fan included. The manual says to only apply thermal compound if it has not been pre applied. It also shows an illustration of the "pre-applied themal solution". This seems a little weird, as there was no compound or syringe in the box. Is it as easy as just snapping it into the motherboard?????

    ftp://download.intel.com/support/pro...s/p4p478_1.pdf <---- the manual

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Intel already include a thermal compound that is pre applied to the heatsink. Simply assemble the heatsink retaining mechanism and that is it.
    My 2.53 is running at 29.5°C idle and 41°C under full load using the standard Intel supplied heatsink straight out of the box in a Lian Li case (you can add an extra 10°C if you are using a "standard" steel case).
    Understeer is when you hit a wall with the front of your car
    Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of your car
    horsepower is how fast your car hits the wall
    Torque is how far your car sends the wall across the field once you've hit it
