Re: how to install intel processor cooling fan?

Hi, the strips sound ike thermal strips. Install the processor, apply the strips onto it just wide enough to cover the centre of the unit and then install the heatsink and fan on to that. Regards mistyman

Why does desktop fan run contiuously

It's probably running a lot because it's trying to keep cool. It could be about to overheat. The heatsink is probably plugged with dust and whatnot...or it could need new thermal paste as well.

If you are around the Chicora, PA area, I can clean it out for you.

Too much heat

Does the fan run on this machine ? They eventually fail but can be replaced. Has it been removed before? If so make sure there is fresh thermal paste where required. There is a disassembly guide online for this machine but the site is in Mandarin. That is never a problem for us Chrome users but I don't know about other browsers.

This is a question regarding the Intel processor's internal thermal solution. I have a Core i7 870 processor. As a sidenote I've used it a few times to start the computer and it's functioning, but I can't...

If you have already wiped some thermal compound paste fro the processor then I reccommend you to wipe it completly from the heatsink of the cpu and the heatsink itself. The reason to this is that if you plan on purchasing another type of compound thermal paste in which have more conductivilty then you want to get the most out of it. Do not attempt to run your cpu without any thermal compound as you will damage the cpu from overheating.

I have a "p4 processor with 3.06ghz speed";i recently having problem of overheating and my temperature is rising to 100degree when CPU utilization is 100%.. .This all happened when i took out my heat-sink...

you should make sure that the heatsink and fan are clean and dust free, then you should clean all the thermal paste off with som alcohol(preferably 90% pure isopropyl alcohol)but 75 will work too make sure the top of the processor is clean also,then reapply the thermal paste.that should help,but if temps still run high then you should look for a better cooler.

D865 desktop processor geting hot as soon as i

Take the fan from processor surface, buy some processor coolant paste, apply well in both the surfaces, and fix a different fan. It will cost a few dollars. And fix it. You are there. Pls vote if you like this solution.

Temperature too high! goes up to 90 C, when working intensively. Coolers not fixing the problem! No way to reduce frequency in bios lower than 3GHz.

get an ohter cpu fan, then apply thermal paste or heat paste the kind you get from radio shacks, or car sound shops, the thermal paste they use on the car amps is very good, it will bring the temp down to atleast 50

Processor overheating

Hi have you cleaned the heatsink? Also replace the paste on the CPU, also you could try installing an extra fan on the case to increase air flow. Also check that your RAM is seated properly and any other chip and card on your board is firmly plugged in. If all this fails replace your CPU. Regards mistyman

Intel p4 3.0ghz with 800fsb fan makes more noice

Hello Prask, Cooling the Intel's LGA775 CPU presents quite a challenge due to it's high operating temperatures, and while the ideal solution would be to use water, not all of us are ready to make the jump. The best solution I found for an easy replacement of the stock cooler is nMEDIAPC ICECONE Pure Copper CPU Cooler. It is an easier install than Thermaltake, and is just as quiet. You can find it here for the best price: Let us know if you need any additional assistance. Best regards, nightdiver
