Most likely yes because mine does not have film and the CPU can get extreemly hot so it would melt and it would smell very bad! so removing it is a good idea.

I need to know what kind to buy for this board. the processor heatsink ASRock ge pro-ht


Socket 478 is a very old socket type, it's been around for nearly a decade. The only processors that work with this socket are Intel's Northwood Pentium 4 and Celeron processors, which are now far surpassed in performance. I would definitely recommend buying a new motherboard for whatever you were going to use this one for. If you are set on this motherboard, however, read on.

Many computer hardware companies have stopped carrying Socket 478 processors. You will most likely have to buy one second-hand. A quick search on Amazon will give you a few buying options (all used) for around $20-$30 US.

Due to the age of the processors, you will probably need to purchase a heat sink seperately. This heatsink is $20, will fit Socket 478, and has very good reviews, but of course feel free to use any heatsink as long as it fits Socket 478: http://bit.ly/hk6yZ5

If you also need memory, be sure it is DDR 333/266, as this is the ONLY type of memory that the 2 memory slots on motherboard will take (maximum 2GB of memory). You can find list of DDR 333 memory in varying capacities here: http://amzn.to/fOGbeV

My monitor is not booting up but powered up, what is the problem? the fan is real loud but nothing else works


I see this is your second posting. Good for you in adding the additional information.
This may be rather lengthy genevacotton, so grab something to drink, and sit back.

The cooling system for a desktop computer consists of air flow through the computer case.
Air is brought in from the Front towards the Back of the computer. (Or for some gamer computers, through the top, or side, and out of the back)

Air helps to cool the hardware components inside the computer.
A Processor is one of the two main components to develop the most heat.

[ Below shows a typical Intel Pentium 4 processor. Operates at a maximum frequency rate, ('Speed') of 3.0GigaHertz,

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium_4/Intel-Pentium%204%203.0%20GHz%20-%20RK80546PG0801M%20%28BX80546PG3000E%29.html

Under the bold black heading > Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz RK80546PG0801M ( BX80546PG3000E),
look at the tabs >
Specifications, Pictures (3), CPU ID, and Comments (0)

Click on > Pictures (5)

You can click on any of the photos to enlarge.

The photos show the top view of a Processor.
The silvery looking square case in the middle is the Processor chipset.
The Green square surrounding it is a circuit board.

Click on the third photo down. The one under 2008-10-05 14:56:45

Holding that circuit board up off of that flat black surface, are pins. These you do not see in the photo.
For this particular Intel Pentium 4, there are 478 pins.
This Processor fits in a Socket 478 processor socket.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

The photo shows the top of the Processor's case, with No Heatsink sitting on it.

This is a typical Heatsink/Fan combo,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=262455&CatId=493

The Heatsink is the aluminum looking square object under the fan.
Your particular desktop computer may not use a fan on top of the Heatsink.

It may have a Fan in the front which draws air through a plastic tuned port.
The plastic tuned port in turn, then goes over the Heatsink sitting on top of the Processor.


Case in point with all of the above prattle?

The Thermal Paste used in-between the top of the Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink, has dried up.


The top of a Processor's case, and the bottom of a Heatsink, are not perfectly smooth.
A microscopic view would reveal 'Pits, Hills, and Valleys'.
When the two surfaces of the Heatsink's bottom, and the Processor's top are put together, the before mentioned imperfections create Air Pockets.

AIR is an Insulator. Not a Conductor.
Thermal Paste is a Conductor. It conducts heat from the top of the Processor's case to the bottom of the Heatsink. and fills in the imperfections.

When thermal paste dries up it looses it's conducive properties.

The fans are designed to spin at an RPM, (Revolutions Per Minute), that is in compliance with the needed cooling for the Processor.
Processor isn't running very hard, fan/s spin at normal speed, (RPM)

Processor is running hard from multiple programs running, or intense games, the Processor heats up, and the fan/s spin faster.

Whenever the Processor heats up past it's thermal limit, (Maximum operating temperature), the fan/s spin faster.
If the Thermal Paste is dried up, the Heatsink, and Fan cannot cool the Processor properly.
The signal is given to the fan/s to speed up, but they still cannot cool the Processor.

The Processor overheats, and shuts off. The fans still spin at max RPM.
No computer operating, fan/s spinning at high RPM.

Right i need the size or model for the cooling fan that all intelboard mode E210882


The Heatsink/Fan combo is based on the processor socket used.

After a few search hits, I have seen E210882 on Intel based motherboards, that use two different processor sockets.
The Socket 478, and the LGA 775 processor socket.

The socket for the Socket 478 has the pin holes. The Processor has the pins. (478 of them)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

The socket for the LGA 775 processor socket has the pins. The Processor has the pin holes. (775 of them)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_775

Identify which processor socket you have, buy accordingly as to the Heatsink/Fan combo.

One example of a Heatsink/Fan combo for an Socket 478 processor socket,
(Only Intel uses the Socket 478 for their Processors),

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=578161&CatId=795

One example of a Heatsink/Fan combo for an LGA 775 processor socket,
(Only Intel uses the LGA 775 socket for their Processors),

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3302824&CatId=1588

Remember to observe Anti-Static Precautions, Thoroughly clean the top of the Processor's case, and aplly fresh new thermal paste.
(A Processor is the most susceptible hardware component to Static shock)

[ Example of thermal paste,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3071621&CatId=503 ]

If you would like advice on how to properly clean the processor's case, properly apply thermal paste, and/or what Anti-Static Precautions are, post in a Comment.

There is a verity of things you can check & or replace. You mentioned the CPU fan is not turning. This is very very important.
This suggests possible CPU fan is defective. Average life span for a CPU fan is 5 years or 50,000 hours. Your MB uses Intel PGA socket 478. For a replacement heatsink & fan assembly open the link provided;
http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-A4012-Cooler-Intel-Socket/dp/B000FEW8JW/ref=dp_cp_ob_e_title_0
A new heatsink assembly will come with a new fan attached to the heatsink.
It should also come with new thermal past or thermal tape attached to the bottom of the heatsink assembly.

As to the front panel LED light blinking continuously.
If the LED light is red in color this means your primary hard disk drive is trying to load windows.
My suggestion is for you to replace the CPU heatsink assembly first.
No need to remove the CPU from its socket at this time.
If you never replaced the Heatsink & fan assembly watch the video included below;

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OB1hxxKdec
Once completed your system should function correctly.
If it doesn't, post you’re finding here & I'll help you further.

Cheers'

Can you instruct me on how to remove this fan as I am replacing processor


you shouldn't remove the fan. your better off, removing the old proc from the heatsink and use new thermal paste on the new one when installing this heatsink back on. just be sure to clean the surface well before pasting it.

don't fear of useing a razor bade to pry the old proc off, it's not glued on. somtimes the old paste gets real tough to remove and sticks pretty good.

Want to upgraded Pentium 4 2.8 GHz to Pentium 4 3.2E GHz


why not go with a faster MB and CPU combo?
First to awnser your question yes the Pentuim 3.2 will fit the MB as long as yours is a 800 Mhz Bus speed. And the Board can be configured for the proper clock speed. I would also buy a new CPU fan and heatsink greese b4 you install this CPU. Thee are so many cheap CPU MB Combos out there its almost cheaper to just replace both and get a much faster system.

This is a standard micro atx board. The holes you are seeing will be on any 478 mobo, you just have to remove the black bracket, which is usually achieved by lifting the center pin in each of the corners.

Socket 478 3 GHz Intel CPU overheating


Simply open/unlock the clips and pull the heatsink off. Then you will need to remove the termal compound from both on top of the CPU and from the bottom of the heatsink. Papertowel + rubbing alcohol works well. Then you will need to re-apply thermal compound before reseating the heatsink/fan.

That's what usually breaks if you have a 478 pin cpu. Should be available in any computer shop. If the actual metal bracket on the heatsink broke you will have to buy a new fan/heatsink. Both solutions are cheap.
