inefficient and often very high. For best results, buy a cooling system for
compatible third-party processor.
2. Install the processor as shown in the chart in the
manual. The processor cannot be placed in the wrong direction, so do not try to
force them, so you bend the pins. If the processor slides into the wall
pull-down bar to solve.
3. Apply thermal grease to the top of the processor, the
entire chip with a thin layer. Bank must have a sink path of the thermal grease
applied to them on the floor. If this is the case, skip this step.
4. Place the heatsink on top of the processor. Slide the
metal brackets under the beams to reach the plastic housing of the processor
socket. If staples are present, pull the clip from the heat sink and fan block.
It must be securely fastened and must not waver at all when you try to move it.
The heatsink and fan should be pressed firmly against the processor. Read the notes
5. Connect the CPU fan in the exhaust of the fan on the
motherboard. Consult your motherboard if you cannot find the correct port. The
computer will not start if the processor fan is not connected.
6. Reboot and run some CPU-intensive programs like video
games. Monitoring the CPU temperature with Speed Fan or a similar program.
Under full load, at a temperature of about 60-70 degrees is acceptable. If the
temperature is much higher than this, you may need better cooling.
