Pentium 4 2.0GHz in all its glory
what's that old saying? "A picture is worth a thousand words". Well, we will let the pictures below speak for themselves.
Here we see a picture of the Intel Pentium 4 2Ghz CPU in the mPGA 478 packaging.
The two pictures above show the Intel i850 chipset used. The first picture is of the Northbridge's rather large passive cooling system. I think Intel should have opted for the Active cooling. The bottom picture shows the actual chipset. Packaged in the OLGA package, the i850 Northbridge resembles the old 0.25um Slot 1 Pentium 3 core.
From the picture above, you can see how Intel has modified the ATX back panel. The Keyboard, Mouse, LTP, COM and USB ports are all in the same position; however, Intel has added a second set of 2 USB ports and a NIC interface (NIC comes in rather handy for a Micro ATX motherboard). Also the audio ports have been modified. The ports sit horizontally rather than vertically and the Gameport has been totally removed.
Last but not least, the largest stock heatsink ever. While the Intel Pentium 4 does put out slightly more heat that the Pentium III CPU it doesn't put anywhere near enough to need a heatsink this big. This is the kind of baby you would love to have on one of your super clocked AMD Athlon CPU's. Weighing in at over 1KG, this heatsink uses a 2700RPM 60mm Intel stock fan. The heatsink/fan combo makes very little noise and does a fantastic job of keeping the CPU cool. During full load we only got the CPU up to 33 degrees Celsius. That's a pretty good sign for overclockers.
