Hey guys. I have a socket 478 mobo, P4PE-X by ASUS. I just ordered an XP-90 and plan on installing it myself. Is there anything I should know for safety precautions? Are there any sites which you could direct me to that could show me what exactly to do, just so I can make sure I'm doing it right? I don't want to f..mess this up. Thanks

Wow guys you are quick! Awesome advice too. I'm getting a Panaflo of some sort...he threw it in to an additional 5 bucks so i didnt ask! He said its decent. Helped alot, I'll post back here when I get the fan. I had AS5 but I ran out helping out my buds n stuff. I do have some OCz overclocking paste. It cost 10 bucks so it should do
.

One major worry of mine...please say it isn't so!

Compatibility
# AMD: Athlon64 FX 3200+ (socket 939/940) /Athlon64 3200+ (socket 754) and above
# Intel: Pentium-4 socket 478 3.2 GHz and above


I don't have a 3.2GhZ!!!

P.S. Huge fan of the 455 Buick..huge

Well it finally cam yesterday! I installed it, man was that a breeze! I was shocked at how easy it was. I had the fan in, in a matter of seconds. The installation on my compact case was a sinch. Awesome airflow, a little loud though
. Awesome temp difference

ORIGINAL = 45c - 57c stock CPU
XP-90 = 31c - 37c stock CPU
XP-90 = 32c - 37c OC'ed CPU

I have the CPU at 3.3GhZ. It wasn't stable at 3.4. My Vcore is at 1.575 and my ram is at 387mhz 1:1


Fan gets a 10/10 from me, amazingly easy install, awesome cooling! What more could you ask.

Why does your cooling read stock? haha that must really suck..no pun intended. I've overclocked my CPU to 3.330 with only a 10c decrease on load and idle without any problem. Push that prescott farther!
