This is an easy one. :)

I am assuming that you're asking about removing your typical P4 HSF.

Direct from Intel's very own website! :)

Is there supposed to be any heat sink paste between the processor and fans


Yes, and this is to promote better thermal transfer between components.

According to studies:
Thermal grease is primarily used in the electronics and computer industries to assist a heat sink to draw heat away from a semiconductor component such as an integrated circuit or transistor.

!!!Warning!!!
Over time, some thermal greases may dry out, have reduced heat transferring capabilities, set like glue and make it difficult to remove the heat sink. If too much force is applied the processor may be damaged. Heating the grease by turning the processor on for a short period often softens the adhesion. It is recommended that thermal grease be re-applied with each removal of the heat sink.

I hope it helped you. Rate for this information will greatly be appreciated. Thank you!

If heatsink is very hot then apply thermal grease between the processor and the heatsink or you can test if it's cooling problem by cooling with an external, powerful cooler.

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.

Continuse restart my computer


Your CPU is overheating
1) Turn off computer and remove case side
2) remove fan from "heatsink" do NOT remove Heatsink "Usually this is stuck with solidified heat paste"
3) clean all dust and dirt from heatsink and fan.
4) vacuum out case Include behind power supply and video card.and any other fans
5) use stiff brush and vacuum outside of power supply
Reboot and see if still restarts if not everything OK
shutdown PC and refit case side.
This is a common problem on a lot of computers as the environment they are used in is usually dusty.
I do mine every 3/4 months and have no problems like this
Please when works give me a fixya

Sometimes my computer restarts suddenly.


this problem is due overheating, and you say yo have a C2D with this mobo.... at intel site it said that this mobo works fine with intel P4, Pentium Duo an Celeron but not C2D. Its true that you have 800Mhz FSB and it will detect the micropro.... and work fine but the C2D will overheat the mobo for its need of energy and overheat it so it start restarting. I dont know how much that mobo is going to last but start installing all cooler you can....the mission is to cool down that mobo and micro...

Upgrade CPU In my SAMBA SM-1845


Hi, as long as both chips are slot 478 it should work fine, you wont need to change any bios or jumpers, just open up the computer, remove the heatsink, lift the lever and remove the CPU.
Insert new processor.
you will need thermal grease at this point, you need to apply a little amount onto the cpu, and make sure the old thermal paste is removed from the heatsink and then refit the heatsink & fan.
other option is fit the new cpu and purchase a new heatsink & fan, they usually come with the thermal grease, a new heatsink will cost about £10 or themal grease by itself will cost about 2-3 pounds.
just make sure you have new thermal paste before you remove the heatsink as the processor will get damaged otherwise..

Hope this helps

Second opinion for ecs p4vmm2 8.1


It's ok to upgrade the processor to P4 the mother board is capable to run the pentium 4 2.0Ghz only . I said that because i'm using that type of motherboard ecs p4vmm2 with processor 2.0Ghz. But for my opinion the problem of your friend computer is not the processor is about the cooling fan heatsink because if the heatsink is not fit or properly lock the processor is over heating that's why the computer hanging and shutdown. If you can tight the two clip that was broken the problem is solved because i have also the same problem before one of my client computer. but if you friend want to upgrade to p4 it's better to buy also a new fan and heatsink for P4.

Thanks and God Bless

Over sound heard from mother board processor fan


the speed of the fan is done by the motherboard, the harder the procesor is working the faster the fan speeds are. There probably was thermal paste between the processor and heatsink but some may have dissipated. If you are applying paste on, put a very thin layer, as too much can be as bad as not enough. clean the fan off of any dust and the heatsink and ensure that there is plenty of room in pc for air circulation.

Cooling solutions


Without a fan mounted to the heatsink I strongly suspect this will overheat and be unreliable pretty quickly. The processor isn't worth buying a $50 heatsink solution but what you have will just damage the processor and put the motherboard at risk as well.
