Socket 478 heat sink retension bracket

Discussion in 'Intel' started by 200µv ripple, Jul 5, 2007.

  1. Hi,

    I just assumed ownership of a P4 MB. It appears the heat sink support
    mechanism is not securely mounted to the MB. I can wiggle each corner
    off the MB by maybe 1/32". In my mind that will place most the stress of
    the heat sink onto the cpu and MB. The white push pins appear to be in
    all the way, but the heads are not flush with the bracket (in the base).

    I am not sure about this setup and before installing a cpu/cooling want
    to verify this setup. I scrounged Intel's site but found nothing
    specific concerning this particular item. Does anyone know about this?
