There is usually 2 clips on heat sinks which can be accessed on the sides of the heat sink itself, you'll need to move the latches from the lock position to the unlock position.

If there aren't latches on the sides of the heat sink then it may use push clips that hold it to the motherboard, those can be accessed by removing the motherboard and squeezing the plastic clips together with a pair of needle nose plyers. The clips will be located on the underside of the motherboard.

    It has the two latches, and one side has a lever. When I move the lever to the unlock position, it loosens up, but I don't know how to remove the latches.

    I'd need a picture of the heat sink to give you more advice, preferably up close showing the latches.

    Normally you 'teeter' the latch. Most heat sink latches look like an M with hooks on the bottom | |'s you normally will push one side down and push in the direction of the latch arm to release it. Difficult to explain but easy to do.

Asus m32 loud fan


Fan speed does increase for a reason.....heat. Check you BIOS settings and verify that the CPU temp is not getting too high. Desktop computers are dirt magnets. It is common for the CPU heatsink to get clogged with dust and dirt. This will reduce cooling and increase heat, eventually to the point that the fan will speed up. Get some electronic duster (canned air) and blow out the fins on the CPU heatsink. DO NOT remove the heatsink from the CPU. There is a special compound that is on the heatsink surface that allows proper heat transfer from the CPU. Removing the heatsink means that this compound is disturbed and would need replaced. Most users do not have this compound and thus should not remove the heatsink to clean. If the heatsink is so clogged that you cannot get the dirt out with canned air, you may be able to remove the fan from the heatsink, depending on the fan/heatsink design. Then you can use a brush to get into the fins to clean them.

Lenovo chipset heating problem


If this is on a desktop lenovo and if it is a slightly older board you may have to remove the heatsink and RE-DO the heatsink compound as there was a common issue with some boards.
NOTE some heatsinks were soldered in and if you are not happy with removing those then a good friend who is knowledgable will be able to help out there.

It isnt a big job but often fixes issues.

If however you are really talking about the CPU heatsink then once again it is pretty simple to do yourself but make sure you clean ALL the old heatsink paste off with isopropynol.

I use CERAMIC heatsink paste (white stuff) as it lasts longer and conducts heat better for lower overall temps.

Toshiba Satellite L500D is shutting down by itself OVERHEATING Clean the fan with compress Air ....> NO GO Need help Please or Any other Suggestion


Disassemble the laptop and remove the heatsink.
Remove all the dried up heatsink goo that's on the heatsink and processor.
Squeeze a small amount of QuickSilver heatsink compound onto the middle of the processor top.
Place the heatsink on the processor and move it in a couple small circles before locking the processor heatsink back in place.
Clean the air vents and cooling fins well while the unit is open.
This should fix any overheating issues you are having (assuming the fan is OK)
If the fan isn't running, replace it.

You have to put a lot of weight on the heat sync for it to boot up


I would assume that it's the cpu heatsink? Actually, it's a bad thing to put extra weight on the heatsink for it may damage the processor. The spring and locking mechanism of the heatsink is just enough to transfer the heat from the processor to the heatsink. Problem maybe on your processor not properly seated on the slot. Remove the heatsink assembly, and release or remove the processor from the slot. Check if there's a foreign object in the slot, a brush will do the cleaning. Reinstall the processor and the heatsink assembly.

Cannot remove the fan and heatsink


Hi,

The heatsink is probably stuck on with the cooler compound. If it's really stuck on, then I would release the CPU brace as well and pull the CPU out with the heatsink. Then carefully wedge something sharpe between the heatsink and cpu, like a razor blade and slowly push the blade through the compound until it's unstuck.

Thanks Mark

How do i remove the processor on a dell optiplex gx 280 from the heatsink and repaste the processor seems to be like glued to the heatsink?


The heatsink compound does act as a weak glue over time. To remove the heatsink, twist gently after removing the clamps, to release the junction. The CPU should stay in it's socket. Scrape off the old compound and add new and re-install the heatsink.

Changeing a cpu is a simple process.

First step, remove the cables and open the case.
locate the cpu - heatsink

it debends on what kind of heatsink it has, simply turn the lever
or use a screwdriver to unhook the metal connector. If you don't have enought room you might need to remove the powersupply first.

handle the cpu with care, ones the heatsink is removed you can
pull up the lever next to the cpu to unlock it

now you can remove the cpu with your fingers by the edges.

place it in a safe location, and go ahead install the new cpu.
optionally apply some thermalpaste and attach the heatsink
and the power connector for the heatsink fan.

you are done.
