Pentium 4 For Socket478, Continued

WCPU 3.0b was not able to recognize the processor as a Socket478-version.

However, MadOnion's 3DMark2001 reported the right socket.

Cooler manufacturers will be pleased to know that Socket478 requires differently sized coolers. The new retention mechanism is completely different to current Pentium 4 coolers and the shape of the cooler is slightly different as well. The new cooler needs to be shorter, but wider.

We cooled with an old P4-cooler after removing the new retention frame that you can see above.
