1000Mhz from a 700Mhz CPU - FrostyTech.com 1000Mhz from a 700Mhz CPU

"Right then first things first I cleaned off the thermal pad that came with this, this is the pink stuff make sure this goes! Also remove the pink tab from the cooler. (you don't have to do this but I am a Perfectionist!!) and clean the surface with medical alcohol (No this isn't my favorite tipple) and apply a thin amount of white heat sink compound to the CPU and ORB. Mounting of the ORB was very easy even though it does get very close to the capacitors by the Socket A Housing. I was very impressed that on one side of the mounting clip there were three eyelets compared to the normal one on most Socket A heatsinks, this stopped the ORB from moving around whilst securing the other side of the mounting clip and thus gave me plenty of confidence that I hadn't spread the heatsink compound everywhere which is the general feeling I get when fitting me generic heatsink with only one eyelet either side and which also can rock about too much and chip the edge of your CPU off which is highly dangerous!"
