One of the best sources I've found is www.mwave.com. You can check out their fans at:

http://www.mwave.com/mwave/dosearch_v2.asp?scriteria=cooling%20fan&bop=and&bbp=and&catpromotename=%filename%client-url%

I've bought from them for years and always had good results. If nothing else, you can find the type fan you need and then try and find it locally.

Good luck, and please let me know how it works out!

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.

As for the green shroud, I would not recommend removing it. The computer case is designed to correctly circulate the air through the system and safely out. As for replacing the fans you can replace them with anything you like, just make sure the new fans are the same dimensions they come in szies 40, 60, 80, 92, 120, 140 and a newer 200 mm form factor so you can just measure them if you don't know the correct size. Next look at where the fans plug in, if it is a three pin plug then they fan's are kept at optimal speeds via the motherboard and bios. So they are already controlled by heat sensors / thermostat so to speak. If they are 2 pin then they just run full speed usually. For the back fan just make sure it is the right size and pin out. You can hook a 3 pin fan to a 2 pin fan plug on the board it will just run full speed all the time. For the CPU fan buy a combo fan/ sink and just make sure the sink is the same as the existing one so it will fit on the motherboard. You could probably get rid of the green shroud if you went with a really high end fan / sink for the CPU but that's up to you. For the thermal paste it is easiest to put a small blob in the center of the CPU and then use a plastic card, such as a drivers license to spread it out to cover the entire CPU, thinly and evenly. Add small amounts if you need to to cover the entire surface. Try not to have a bunch oozing out the sides although it won't really hurt if it is.

I have a dell 8400 tower that operates just fine usually but lately there seems to be a fan issue where it sound like a jet engine and I am concerned that the fan will fail (it currently operates) and...


the bios monitors the processor Temperature and increases fan speed if its gets hot. I recommend, get a can of air and blow out the processor's heat sink, as it could be getting dirty and preventing air flow for cooling. otherwise you have some software that running the CPU at a high rate for a long period of time. Use control +alt +Del then switch to task manager, if you click on the CPU heading it will order the tasks by CPU usage, look for the ones that are at the top of the list. note:system idle process should always be way up there 95-100% CPU, this on is OK. all else look into. you can "end task" one the offensive one and look up more details on the web about that application. I look forward to your comments. Thanks

The bracket clip that holds the fan down broke. Is there a fix or do I buy a new fan?


If you are innovative enough one can improvise by simply hold the fan to the heat sink with copper wire in case only one bracket is broken. The fan only requires to be on the heat sink to remove heat from the processor. Otherwise the fan & heat sink as one sealed unit only. Else try out the junk yard and see if you can hunt for one where PC's are dumped !

However if you want your PC to last for 2-3 yrs more, trouble-free, then my recommendation would be to replace the fan+heat sink unit, 'cos if the heat conducting paste between the processor & heat sink, if disturbed cannot be replaced to its original capacity & the processor will overheat and the PC will auto shut down repeatedly, till the processor is damaged permanently! .............................sodeep

Over heating and how to change admin password


Assuming yours is windows xp.

go to start->control panel->useraccounts->
select the admin account. side list see change the password.
you have to input the old one to change the new one.

and overheating is caused by damaged heat sink interface material or even damaged heat sink.

if interface material is damaged then replace it with the intel original heat sink interface material or cooler master material.
if heat sink is damaged then select the appropriate heat sink for your cpu.
my recommendation other that original cpu coolers is cooler master cpu coolers. very less cost but superb effective against processor overheating.

Intel D865GVHZ (Gateway Hazelton) motherboard system cooling fan


This fan error message shows up when the CPU fan is not plugged into the CPU FAN plug on the motherboard. The Intel D865GVHZ
motherboard has a total of 4-fan plugs so it is easy to plug the CPU fan into one of the other fan plugs that is not marked CPU FAN on the motherboard.

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.

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:
