Big Typhoon fits 478?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I want to get the Thermaltake Big Typhoon for my dads pentium 4 478pin 1.7GHZ desktop computer. It says it fits it fine except that it says 'Intel P4 478 Prescott FMB1.5' im not sure what FMB1.5 means and im pretty sure his cpu is not a prescott. However it is the same bracket so it wouldnt make a difference right? Will it fit it? I included a print screen of the details of his cpu if it will help.

if they say taht the big typhoon is incompatible with FMB 1.5, i THINK they mean the 4 holes. Meaning if your MOBO don't use the four holes to connect a heatsink, it will not be supported. If yours has a plastic-ish clip, it will be supported. (The above is an educated guess.. , hopefuly i amd helpful OR right)

EDIT: nvm me...i guess i'm wrong then...

hmm well it has a plastic bracket box around the cpu. The cpu connects with these four clips and has two levers to hold it in place. Pictures below.....

Yes, you have to remove the retension bracket before you can fit the BT on the motherboard.
Edit: I didn't see the part of the first post that said "478", but you will have to remove the motherboard, take the retension bracket off, and attach whatever the HSF came with.
