A word of advice to Pentium 4/Core 2 users...

Postby Chukkz » Mon Aug 30, 2010 1:13 pm

If you have a mainboard that has an LGA 775 socket and your cooler/CPU gives up so you want to exchange a part then BE CAREFUL WITH THE COOLER!

I am talking of this:

You are supposed to push the plastic pins you see here upside down into the holes on the mainboard so that they *click* in...

I have no idea what Intel thought when they came up with this concept of fastening the coolers on such boards, I just know it sucks! :evil:
So I wanted to exchange my sisters shitty Celeron with a Pentium equivalent, costed only 15 € (Thats less then the ammount in Dollares) and was worth a shot right? The thing goes slow at times and even my old P4 1.8 was faster. It can not even run flashgames like Rubble Trouble, thats how shitty it is.

Now once I had it open and the cooler removed it was no biggie to exchange the processor, really straightforward... I have built my Athlon II from which I am writing here and its like Lego. I THOUGHT IT IS!

Strangely when putting the cooler back on the fucking plastic pins would not go into the holes right. After a lot of trying around I noticed there was something wrong... reason: I broke off half of the shitty fuck piss dick plasticpin (Drea please censor me if you think I am inappropriate thank you :p).

So yeah, thats what I have from my good will to help out. I can see tomorrow that I can buy a 775 cooler somehow, see that I install it WITHOUT BREAKING SHIT OFF and then pray the whole thing wasn't damaged anyway. =_=; Please wish me luck folks-

But yeah, LGA 775 cooler arretation = WORST INVENTION EVER. I love AMD for not adopting this crap and going with a lever.

And yeah Drea knows about it but the mainboard died. On a positive note the new cooler is supereasy to fit in and out. I think the whole thing was just shit.

It's probably a lot better than that thing she was on before.
