Intel Pentium 4 Socket478 Processor Thermal Solutions

As processor technology pushes to faster speeds and higher performance, thermal management becomes increasingly crucial when building computer systems. Maintaining the proper thermal environment is key to reliable, long-term system operation. The overall goal in providing the proper thermal environment is keeping the processor below its specified maximum case temperature. Heatsinks induce improved processor heat dissipation through increased surface area and concentrated airflow from attached fans. In addition, interface materials allow effective transfers of heat from the processor to the heatsink. For optimum heat transfer, Intel recommends the use of thermal grease and mounting clips to attach the heatsink to the processor.

When selecting a thermal solution for your system, please refer to the website below for collection of heatsinks evaluated and recommended by Intel for use with Intel processors. Note, those heatsinks are recommended for maintaining the specified Maximum T case requirement. In addition, this collection is not intended to be a comprehensive listing of all heatsinks that support Intel processors.

Chapter 1

Introduction of PT800DB/PT800DBP/PT800DBZ Motherboard

Thank you for purchasing the PT800 series which provide extremely performance and meet future specification demand.

PT800 series motherboards are adopted with advanced technologies to deliver the extremely performance for Intel Pentium 4 socket 478 processors. PT800 series motherboards also feature AGP 8X, Serial ATA RAID0, 1, USB 2.0 as well as 6-channel audio which are based on the advanced VIA PT800 chipset with FSB 800MHz and DDR 400 MHz support. Now we could know more details by reading the features of motherboards below.

1-1 Feature of motherboard

PT800 series motherboards are designed for Intel Pentium 4 Socket-478 400MHz/533MHz/800MHz Front Side Bus Frequency CPUs and the memory size expandable to 3.0GB.

By using VIA PT800 chipset which provides 800/533/400MHz Front Side Bus frequency and DDR266/333/400 SDRAM support as a obvious further step to the next generation of 400/533/800MHz processors. PT800 series motherboards also offer ULTRA ATA 133 and Serial ATA RAID 0, 1 functions to provide speedier HDD throughout that boosts overall system performance.

Integrated AC’97 CODEC audio on system supports 6 channel speaker for 3D Surround Effect which is fully compatible with Sound Blaster Pro® that gives you the best sound quality and compatibility. AGP 8X slot enables more complex models and detailed textures with AGP 8X graphic accelerators which creates richer and more lifelike virtual environments. VIA VT6103 LAN PHY supports 10/100Mbps data transfer rate full duplex, half duplex operation. USB control as well as capability of expanding to 8 USB function ports support USB2.0/1.1 Devices.

Built-in hardware monitor function will monitor and protect your computer which is the special design in hardware for protecting Pentium 4 CPU from burned, and will shutdown power supply automatically when CPU is overheated or the CPU cooling fan is not working.

Minor adjustable DDR memory 2.5V Voltage, AGP 1.5V Voltage, and other special functions allows user to increase CPU Host clock step by step by setting up BIOS to approach over clocking and increasing stability of the system.

2-3-2 About INTEL PENTIUM 4 478-PIN CPU

This motherboard provides a 478-pin surface mount, Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) socket, referred to as the mPGA478B socket supports Intel Pentium 4 processor in the 478 Pin package utilizes Flip-Chip Pin Grid Array (FC-PGA2) package technology.

The CPU that comes with the motherboard should have a cooling FAN attached to prevent overheating. If this is not the case, then purchase a correct cooling FAN before you turn on your system.

WARNING! Be sure that there is sufficient air circulation across the processor’s heatsink and CPU cooling FAN is working correctly, otherwise it may cause the processor and motherboard overheat and damage, you may install an auxiliary cooling FAN, if necessary.

To install a CPU, first turn off your system and remove its cover. To locate the ZIF socket and open it by first pulling the level sideways away from the socket then upward to 90-degree. Insert the CPU with the correct orientation as shown below. The notched corner should point toward the end of the level. Because the CPU has a corner pin for two of the four corners, the CPU will only fit in the orientation as shown.

NOTE! When you install DIMM modules fully into the DIMM sockets the eject tab should be locked into the DIMM modules firmly and fit to its indention on both sides.

WARNING! For the DDR SDRAM CLOCK is set at 166MHz, use only PC2700compliant DDR Modules. When this motherboard operate at 133Mhz, most system will not even boot if non-compliant modules are used because of the strict timing issues, if your DDR Modules are not PC2100-compliant, set the DDR SDRAM clock to 100MHz to ensure system stability.

2-5 To install the Expansion Cards

WARNING! Turn off your power when adding or removing expansion cards or other system components. Failure to do so may cause severe damage to both your motherboard and expansion cards.

2-5-1 Procedure For Expansion Card Installation

1.To read documentations or manuals for your expansion cards and make any necessary hardware or software settings for your expansion card such as jumpers.

2.To remove your computer’s cover and the bracket plate on the slot you intend to use.

3.To align the card’s connectors and press firmly.

4.To secure the card on the slot with the screen you remove above.

5.To replace the computer system’s cover.

6.To set up the BIOS if it’s necessary.

7.To install the necessary software drivers for your expansion cards.
