Guide for Mounting Skt478 HSF on Skt775 M/B

Today I,m going to show you how you can still use some Skt478 HSF Coolers on a Skt775 Motherboard, Using a Thermalright LGA775 RM,
And the ZalmanCNPS7000B-cu HSF Cooler

Compatibility Information: The LGA775 RM is designed to use with Thermalright XP-120, SI-120 and XP-90 heatsinks
only. It's not compatible with our old P4 models SLK-947U/-900U or SP-94
I also found it to be compatible for use with the ZalmanCNPS7000B-cu



Once you have the above Retention Modual you will see that there are Four parts to it
(1) The 2 x Retention Brackets
(2) The Back Plate with the sticky square pad
(3) The Plastic X insulator
(4) The Mounting Screws



Note: Do not remove white protective paper/peel
As it will be easier to remove, this bracket if you ever wish to transfer to another M/b

Put the metal backplate with the X insulator at back of motherboard and align the four holes with the ones on the motherboard.



Insert screws through the backplate and the motherboard.



Then put the Mounting bar through the slots in each of the Retention Brackets
Note : you may find that they are tight to get through I had to File the bars slightly to correctly fit !!
Then Mount to the Back Plate with the screws provided



Closer View
Note : When using the Zalman-CNPS7000B-cu Cooler and above 775-RM Bracket you must have at least 10mm Clearance from CPU PWM area





Now you can put your AS-5 Thermal Paste (or which ever you use) on the CPU then Mount ZalmanCNPS7000B-cu HSF on the Mounting bars as seen below



Now we have just to Plug the fan into the CPU Fan header and we have a fully functional Skt478 Cooler now Mounted on our Skt 775 Motherboard.


Hope this will be useful to you as it was for Me!!

Temps and tests?

I'm interested to see whether it's effective.

At the moment it is in a Rosetta@haome/Folding Rig with an E2200 @ 3.0Ghz and is 22C-24C Idle Temps and 38C-40C Load

Ambient Temp here @ the moment is around 22C in that room

The Stock Intel HSF temps were around 30C idle and 44-46C with no OC on CPU
