Hey, I know this is a stupid question, but I only got into the hardware parts of computers since around December this year, so I missed out on socket 478 stuff ^.^ My dad bought the P4 at the end of the P4 generation so it sucked. Some friend of his suggested all the parts and put it together for my dad. Incase you're wondering, it's P4 3.0ghz socket 478 (forgot stepping), no name DDR1 512m ram, Radeon 9250 128m DDR2, 80gig hard drive (never heard of brand), ASUS P4S800 mobo.
Got it from 200x15 to 210x15 with no voltage change. Can't go any higher cuz stupid $25 PSU gets jumpy under load, horrible Vcore under load, and the darn P4's at like 54 celcius during OCCT. Anyone willing to explain to tell me how I can take off Intel's stock heatsink? (so I can put some arctic silver on it
I remember that I may have tried pulling on it really hard when I was younger... didn't come off though)
So yea, just asking, how to take off the stock heatsink XD I'm familiar with AM2/3 sockets, if that's relevant...
