Intel Quadro

Intel's upcoming quad-core Kentsfield processor will be arriving in November and will be dubbed "Core 2 Quadro" according to DigiTimes. The new CPU is slated to debut at the same time as AMD's upcoming 3GHz Athlon 64 FX-64 CPU, the first quad-core CPU from Intel will be a flagship Core 2 Extreme QX6700. This model will feature a 2.66GHz core frequency, though a much less expensive Core 2 Quadro Q6600 will be offered in Q1 2007 which will run at 2.4GHz.

Certainly interesting times ahead in the desktop and server arena! Feel free to  comment in our forum.

First time I`ve done this to a K7 series, and I`ll be doing it 2morrow, from an ABit kv7 to a similar ASRock kt400a.

Anywho, what I was after was some real basic do`s and don`t`s i.e. don`t clean off the old heat pastey stuff with sandpaper and don`t submerge in soapy water.

The cpu will be housed under it`s original stock hsf.

Not much to say really. Just take the same care that you would with most electrical components. Socket A's have heatsink retention mechanisms. I've put a simple to use guide in the AMD section on installing Skt A HSF's

Well wouldn`t u believe it, I bust open a pack of "CoolMaster Premium Thermal Compound Kit" and there is both a credit card shaped thingy AND a template for a SktA & 423! Think I`ll use a busted k7 board to house it in whilst cleaning.

Hmm what was the stuff you cleaned the goo off the processor with - piccy is pretty blurred - more importantly what is it based on. i.e. alchyhol, non-alchyhol ?

You can just use isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) to clean off old thermal paste.

Thanks WC, I aint never pulled a hsf off a cpu and had it come away like dry bubble-gum b4 >.<

Think it`s coz the cpu and pcb aren`t covered with a semi inch metalic square b4 human contact, more like a small rectangle with sub rectangles branched around it.

EDIT: AXDA2600DKV4D now nice`n clean thnx guyz ;) Let`s hope I didn`t frig something with the wire wool brush and soap powder.
