If you buy retail version, fan will come in it (not to worry)

LGA775 is different, entirely different, n it, the processor has holes (rather than the pins), and Motherboard have pins (rather than holes), so you have to buy the Intel 915 or Intel 925 based chipset board for it, which has JUST entered the market, so you have definately 478pin processor.


got it?

if its OEM, then you can get original FAN of P-4 out of eBay, as I have built pc's for family with different CPu's and every time I see a new fan, like in 3.06 its full copper base. nd with this mine, its more efficent, throws air at 4 sides.

people use to buy ratail CPU's and install their own fans, (if u dont have a good fan), go to eBay. you'l find cheaper.
