Ok first things first. This computer is for my dad, I got a 2.8 PD through Intel's retail program, got XP Pro, the proc, and intel mobo for 210. So it was a good deal.

Onto the technical question. I have the heatsink installed, i know their the four rubber like plastic clips. I have it more locked down than I did before but theirs still a signifigent wiggle to it. I'm just wondering if that is normal or how the retention mechinism works.

Thanks in advance.

o geez i dont kno...sorry

my friend has an LGA775 PC from dell..i think he showed me the heat sink and socket once. i dont remember how steady the heat sink was on the socket, but i can give u a bit of advice. i would say to start it up an dgo STRAIGHT into the BIOS to check the temp. if its too high, pull the plug. i wouldnt normally say this, but i have a prescott for socket 478 and it has booted up at above 96C before(heat sink problems), pulled the plug right away, and the prescott is still going strong, folding right next to my san diego system, no problems what so ever.
