a Intel GHz Pentium D processor (boxed - with a Intel heatsink). There is no instructions for removing a protective plastic strip, so I.
When I say "cooling unit" I meant the whole heatsink and/or fan It has been on 24/7 for a couple of years now. Another trick I've used to get Pentium machines to run fanless is to use a P3 or Athlon XP heatsink and remove the fan. Also, thermal tape or "frag tape" works, but not as nice of a finish.
Thermal Metrology for the Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor in the Pin Package. This tape must be removed prior to heatsink installation.
