Installing XP-90 on a socket 478

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

Its a good cooler. The only draw back, is the hold down brackets are a little stiff. So like Zipnogg said. Prepare for blisters. Naa, its not that bad.

I actually had to bend my brackets to make it a little easier to mount and unmount it when i cleaned it.

What fan are you putting on that?

# 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


It should be fine as long as its a 478 socket.
