How do I remove the Intel Socket 775 heat sink?

I am trying to replace my cpu, but I cannot get the plastic screws to detach from the motherboard. What are the ways that I can get it off, without having to drill or cut out the screws?

Use a minus screwdriver. The 4 plastic pins that hold the heatsink are rotatable. Rotate anti-clockwise (using screwdriver) and pull up to remove. When installing do the reverse, make sure the narrow lines (where the screwdriver tip goes) are facing outwards and rotate clockwise to tighten.

Where do I find the 4 plastic retention clips for this heatsink?


You can't just replace the clips, you will need to purchase the entire heat sink. Contact the manufacturer's parts dept for help ordering this or buy an aftermarket one on eBay.

My old heat sink and fan have screw in attatchments and the new on has the plastic pop in and 1/4 turns. Help?


Your old heat sink and fan probably works just as as good or better than that stock Intel fan and heat sink. If your computer case does not allow access to the rear of the motherboard you are going to have to remove the motherboard to pull the back plate that was used to attach your old heat sink and fan. To install the Intel fan turn the pins until the screwdriver slot is perpendicular to the fan shroud (the tip of the arrow is furthest out), then push in any 2 opposite sides at the same time into the motherboard. You will here them click in. Repeat for the other 2 pins.

How to remove the cooling fan


They are usually mounted on with plastic clips, sometimes with screws. Use a small screw driver to loosen the clips on all the sides at the same time so the fan can some off.

Socket 478 3 GHz Intel CPU overheating


Simply open/unlock the clips and pull the heatsink off. Then you will need to remove the termal compound from both on top of the CPU and from the bottom of the heatsink. Papertowel + rubbing alcohol works well. Then you will need to re-apply thermal compound before reseating the heatsink/fan.

Noisy fan


You need to replace the fan. Measure the fan you have now and buy one the same diameter. Then remove the old fan and put in the new fan.

Upgrading the cpu and heat sink and fan


Hi,
All the factory fitted CPUs are having such heat sinks as previously u were having.
Check on the backside there will be small plastic covers where screws fit these could be removed by screw driver but u can purchase that heat sink or can use previous heatsink as well if it is working.

My lap top is extra ordinary heated after some time.what is problem?


You didn't mention if you had a laptop or a desktop. But on a laptop there is a small fan on the power supply that cools the CPU and all inside. The laptop must always be used on a flat surface like a table to ensure the air is circulating properly. Putting it on your lap or on your bed will cause it to heat more than usual. Yes they do get hot, the tempature is monitored by your BIOS and will automatically shut down if it gets too hot, this is to save the CPU from being damaged. As long as things are working properly then you are ok.

How to change


Hi

Replacing the heatsink fan on a PC is not a difficult job, but it pays to be thorough, especially with cleaning the top of the CPU die before replacing the fan.

Don't be mean with money when choosing a new cooler either. With CPU coolers you get what you pay for. I personally always use coolers from a company called Zalman.

Ok ..with that out of the way ..the basics are ...remove old cooler..

They are either held on by a sprung clip that fits across the cooler and locates in lugs on the cpu socket surround, or they are held by screws that go through the motherboard.

Clean the top face of the cpu die carefully making sure to use a blunt implement ..... scratches on the machined face will lead to premature failure due to overheating.

If the cooler you buy has a "thermal pad" stuck to the face of the heatsink, then remove this too and clean up the heatsink face. Use good quality thermal paste on the top face of the CPU die, then fit the new cooler. Getting the right amount of thermal paste is a bit of an art .... too much is a bad as too little. The paste is NOT a glue. The paste simply fills in any imperfections on the machined surfaces of the cpu die and the heatsink to aid heat transfer.

Does this sound complicated? It isn't really. The key is not to rush it and make sure the surfaces are completley clean and the thermal paste applied correctly.

Here is a link to one tutorial on fitting cpu coolers that you might find useful:

P4 ugrade required


Sadly you wont find any 1066Mhz FSB processors for the Socket 478. The best you can find is the 3.4Ghz with 800Mhz FSB. It might be cheaper and also better value for you to get a Socket 775 based motherboard and Core2 Duo processor. The value range E2160/2180 processors or the E4300/4400 processors have been tested to be even faster than the Socket 775 Pentium Dual 3.4Ghz and they also use less power.

An article on socket 478 for you http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/cpu/display/20040123103754.html
