HydroCool200EX and Intel LGA 775 Pentium 4 processors


Makubex

Recommended Posts

Because the LGA 775 processors have a Prescott core they get pretty hot, especially during game play. So when I get me one of these I also want to get a good cooling system, as is the HydroCool200EX. But in the specifications of the HydroCool200EX it says: "Integrated, fully contained unit includes all necessary hardware to cool your Athlon XP or [B][[U]P4 NorthwoodCPU[/U]". [/B] It does not mention Prescott. Which brings me to my question: [U]Is the HydroCool200EX compatible and fully funtional with the new Intel LGA [U]775[/U] Pentium 4 processors?[/U]

Makubex, From what I understand, the LGA 775 is a very hot processor. [url]http://www.overclockers.com/tips00613[/url] Some serious thinking prior to purchasing a LGA 775. [url]http://www.overclockers.com/articles1049[/url] [url]http://www.overclockers.com/tips00617[/url] The LGA 775 hold-down isn't available for the HC (yet?). See the pictures and info at this site too.

All the bugs will be worked out in the second year. Likewise, Intel and some AMD's processors have had some recalls in the past after being introduced. Don't jump onto the ship just yet, even though it's attractive to do so. A small wait could pay off greatly. Stev
