Any computer system generates heat and excessive heat build up can result in CPU slowdowns and crashes. StarTech has designed its FAN478 heatsink and fan combination for optimal cooling of Pentium 4 processors.

Specifically designed for CPUs using the Socket 478 configuration, the FAN478 keeps your system running at optimal temperatures by drawing heat into the closely-spaced aluminum cooling fins while the 60mm, 4800RPM fan moves over 20CFM to dissipate the heat.

The fan utilizes both ball and sleeve bearings for longer, and more reliable service life. The fan operates at a relatively low 36 dBA at top speed. In order to reduce noise levels during low thermal need cycles, the fan can be controlled via the TX3 connector. This connector plugs directly into the motherboard and provides power to the fan as well as allowing the system to monitor and control the fan's speed and operational status.

  • newegg Superior Heat Dissipation and Cooling Performance The StarTech FAN478 features an aluminum heatsink with closely-spaced fins for effective heat dissipation and a 60mm, 4800RPM fan for superior cooling performance.
  • newegg Adjustable Fan Speed With a 3-pin connector, the StarTech FAN478 supports fan speed monitoring so you can fine tune the fan speeds for the optimum balance between cooling performance and noise level.

3 out of 5 eggsVery basic

Pros: Simple
Removable non-proprietary fan
Mounting Plate for fan is also removable
Cheap

Cons: No copper on heatsink
Fan is somewhat noisy
Didn't improve my P4 3GHz over stock heatsink

Other Thoughts: My main goal was to get a heatsink that did not have a proprietary fan / mounting system, etc. My stock intel fan has been going out slowly, causing a lot of vibrations, etc. There did not seem to be a direct replacement easily available. I ordered this heatsink, a 60-80mm adapter and an Enermax 24CFM 14Db 80mm fan. The fan on the CPU is rated at 24 CFM, but at about 5000RPM, not 1700 like the Enermax. The Enermax is quiet alright, but doesn't seem to move enough air with the adapater on it. I tried push and pull direction with same results. Idle CPU runs at around 60C. With stock 60mm fan, runs around 52C and with Intel stock setup, runs around 47C. I am going to try the stock intel heat sink (which is clearly superior) that had a copper core with the Enermax fan / adapter. I have to bend up the mounting plate for the 60mm fan on this heatsink a bit to get it to fit, but we'll see how it does then. Next is to get a higher CFM fan (prob louder too) and see how that works.

5 out of 5 eggsA Quiet Replacement

Pros: The fan (60mm) was quieter than the old fan (80mm).

Cons: I was surprised that the heat sink block was identical to the old one.

Other Thoughts: Replacement for a heat sink/fan with broken clips on a Celeron motherboard that I pulled from my Dad's old system to use a NAS server. I would've preferred a lower profile heat sink block but the free shipping made this one a bargain.

4 out of 5 eggsGood

Pros: Very easy and sturdy install. The clamps are good quality. It does a great job of keeping things cool.

Cons: The fan is a bit loud and the fan doesn't sound "fluid" while it spins all the time. You can sometimes hear a sandy sound coming from the spinning fan.

Other Thoughts: Very easy to install, comes with thermal paste. Good for my Pentium 4.
