|Switching from Athlon XP to a Pentium 4 system - Yeah!
My Athlon XP system ran like a beauty.
BUT! The Air Cooling System was very noisy. Furthermore I have never
really liked using AMD's CPUs. Therefore I thought.... Let's buy a
Pentium 4 system instead. So I did. And I have never been happier.
Some photos of the swap-out:
I remember that it was a hard thing to put on air
cooling and the cooling block on the Athlon XP system. I nearly broke
the motherboard, because of the hatch that needs to clip around the
processor. I think it was a very very bad design. When installing the
Pentium 4 processor (of course it was a in-a-box) it was a easy as just
clipping it on the processor and using the two plastic arms and lock it
down onto the processor. Very very easy.
Therefore if you are not a professional, I really
recommend buying specially a Pentium 4 processor as an "In-A-Box"
This is just my memories.
