Asus isn’t a company to just throw a product out to the consumer without a decent package and setup.
This small box contains all the tools and cables you need to install the CT-479 on a compatible motherboard and start your Pentium M platform experience.
The complete contents are pretty slim, including the adaptor itself, a power cable, the heatsinks and retention clips, and a short instruction manual.
Here’s the top of the adaptor, where the Pentium M processor is attached. The blue jumpers you see on the right hand side of the CT-479 are there to set the FSB of the processor you are installing. Our 755 CPU uses the 400 MHz FSB but some of the newer Dothans are using a 533 MHz bus. The power cable is there to supply additional power to the adaptor.
On the rear of the card we see a 478-pin male connection that plugs into the motherboard just as a Pentium 4 processor would.
The heatsink supplied with the CT-479 is much larger than the one that came with the DFI 855GME board as it is meant to use the same heatsink restraints that the Pentium 4 processors use. This isn’t a problem at all, as the fan still remains very quiet and the extra cooling can only help with our overclocking attempts.
Here you can see the depth of the heatsink Asus has included with the kit.
And finally, the foam shim on the bottom of the heatsink is there to help prevent the bare core of the Pentium M from being damaged during installation.
