    Has the heat sink fan unit been pressed onto the motherboard over the CPU or how is it removed ?

  • vhbeckie Jan 29, 2009

    The heat sink and fan instructions are separate from the manual on the package they came in ... unfortunately those instructions are lost.
    The screw driver worked very well in removing the heat sink from the motherboard . Both efforts were much appreciated . Thank you !

There is a stainless steel spring which goes through the heatsink and clips down on lugs either side of the cpu socket. Look carefully and you will see where you can put a flat screwdriver on one side of it.
Just push it down and away from the socket.
To put it back on just reverse the procedure.
Don`t forget where your fan is plugged into on the motherboard or power supply unit

I think my cpu died,how do I take off old one with heatsink and fan attached. The motherboard is an iwill p4s.


You will need to remove the fan first. Usually, if its a stock intel fan, there are 2 clips that lift up, then you will need to pry the edges out of the notches. Once you get the fan off, there is a little metal bar you will lift up to open the cpu holder and release the pins. Then lift the cpu up out of the socket.

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

Removal of CPU


There are several types of CPU fan / Heatsink assymblies on the market these days, usually there is a lever, or two on either side of the fan that tension the fan and heatsink to the CPU socket. Once released the fan/heatsink should come off as a single unit. Sometimes you may need to gently " wiggle " the fan/heatsink in a rotating motion to loosen it from the CPU thermal grease.

Once the fan/heatsink is removed, the CPU slot will have a single lever on one side, this can be lifted, and the CPU should come out of the socket.

Remember to gently place the new CPU into the socket, it should only seat properly one way, so remember to note how the original CPU was seated.

Apply a very thin film of thermal grease to the top of the CPU*, and re-attach the cooling fan / heatsink unit.

*Thermal grease is quite inexpensive, and easy to apply, put a small dab in the center of the top of the CPU, and with a small flat piece of plastic such as an old credit card, smooth the grease out and spred it to the edges of the raised surface of the CPU.

Hi - benimur


Pls check:
  • if CPU heatsink fan turning;
  • if heatsink is flat on CPU and tight;
  • if PSU exhaust fan turning;
  • if Video Card heatsink fan turning;
  • with a voltmeter, pls check consistency of the yellow and red wires (+12 and +5);
  • pls inspect capacitors near the CPU, none should be blistered, bulging are leaking;
  • remove the HDD connection and observe it will restart, if no, then probably a driver/software issue.

Cpu removal


If you are removing the cpu itself, you must first release it by pushing the metal lever over a bit, then lifting it up..

If you are removing the heatsink and fan, you must first release the 4 clips on either corner of the heatsink. (pull back a little on then, the pull up, careful not to damage the components).

CPU fan stops, computer shuts down


You must have the CPU fan plugged into the CPU fan power connector or the system can not monitor the fans speed. Your PC will shut down & give you that message. (The fan must be connected to the correct power plug).
If when you did replace the CPU's fan & had to remove the heat sink, which is where the fan screws into & did not clean the old thermal grease off the CPU & heatsink & replace with new thermal grease than your CPU will still overheat. If you add thermal grease over top of old thermal grease your CPU will over heat.
This is all a balancing act. If any one is not correct your system will shut down. (This is better than killing the CPU).
To remove old thermal grease use a clean cloth damped with house hold alcohol & use the same on the bottom of the heatsink. Please allow plenty of time for the alcohol to dry.

Good Luck! Take your time.

How to remove the cpu from mobo.


Was the heatsink screwed into the mobo or was it clipped to the plastic? If it was screwed on the processor is soldered to the mobo and cannot be removed. If its a ZIF socket then more than likely the lever has broken off and the socket is pretty useless now, time for a new mobo.

How to remove the cpu


Hi, You will find that the CPU doe's have a lever to remove it. But it is probably hidden under your heatsink and fan. Study the clips holding the h/s & fan down and unclip them. gently apply a bit of force to the h/s and remove it. You will now see the lever you need Take as much care as possible removing the H/S and also the CPU other wise you may damage the pins on the CPU. Regards mistyman
