There are 479 pins, to prevent you from insearting a PM in a 478 board. Since P4 and PM is electrical compatible, PM does not need an extra pin. But since the pin out is somewhat different, Intel don't want n00bs to return fried PM's because they tried it in a 478.

At that time I was looking into overclocking the thing som I placed a papst 40mm fan on top of it. I required that I cut down the fins...

Well, i just read that I can draw 500mA from the connectors, e.g. 6W. The fans draw 2.4W each at 12v. So it will be a close call. Question is, do they draw more, when run by PWM? Is the rating max, or during normal operation?

Max currentdraw from mobo fan connectors?

I know the inf is somewhere around, but I have tried searching to no avail. Anyhow I have two 120mm panaflo FBK-12G12LH in my system, undervolted to 5v. However I want to run them from the mobo fanconnectors as Speedfan then can take control of them. They do not have RPM minitoring, so I was thinkin...

Well, guess that was kind of a stupid post i wrote. I just found out that the P4-M and P4 is compatible, but the pin-out is different. So eventou a P4-M would work with P4 desktop chipset, it would need a different pin-out.

So much for my good idea.

P4 M socket 478

I'm building a new HTPC for running WMCE 2005 with the Ahanix D-Vine 5 case. As the thermal properties of HTPC cases in generel are very poor I am considering different paths. MCE5 requires a P4 2.4 to run smoothly and I already have a 2.6. So the question is, what P4-M (socket 478) do I need in ord...

A P133 heatsink is fine for the 9600XT. I have done it, and there haven't been any problems so far. If pcislots is a concern try finding a heatsink for a P Pro for 1U servers. They are about 2 centimeters high, and therefore should only render one pci slot useless, I would think.

I can only second zoob. Did it with my old Radeon AIW, and it worked fine. Just be carefull not to apply to much pressure. As I recall it, you apply some pressure, and after a few seconds you can feel the glue giving in and the heatsink comes of.

So i finally got around to mod my vidcard. I exchanged the stock fan/heatsink on my Sapphire 9600XT 256 with an old heatsink from a P133. The P133 heatsink is from a ICL/Fujitsu system, where the cpu was passively cooled. I glued it on with arctic silver epoxy and left it for a couple of hours to cu...

Neither is it recommended to change the heatsink on your gpu nor fiddle with the mobo. Things I have already done, together with many others here.

The fan/heatsink on my Sapphire 9600XT looks rather flimsey. I have had it apart and it is only the walls of the fan that acts as heatsink.
