You need to see if the motherboard is compatible with active cooling other wise it will not work.

Where is the fan


There's a CPU fan mounted on the heatsink on top of the CPU and inside case fan(s) mounted in the back of the case.

Heatsink louse (spring clip ****) could i use a metal shim or something like that


You could shim it if you're careful, but don't shim between the processor and the heatsink, put it between the spring clip and the top of the heatsink. Also as this a universal heat sink, are you using the correct mounting attachments? normally these are very tight and difficult to get on rather than loose.
Hope this helps.

A noisey or ineffcient Fan.
The fan can some times be replaced, consult your computer shop. This CPU cooler is for a AMD socket 462 if I am not mistaken.
Remove the fan from the heatsink.
Clean it with a paintbrush and dust it out.
Carefully peel back the sticker containing the fan information, this is the sticker that would otherwise be invisable when it was installed on the CPU cooler.
Using light oil, Q20 and the red nozel, spray a drop on the exposed sharft.
Then put the sticker back on the fan.
Please remember to clean the heatsink and to apply the thermal interface paste correctly as these processors can burn out in less than 5 seconds.
Reassemble the CPU cooler.

Please rate this solution it is the thumbs up on the right hand side of this solution.
Thanks

You have to find out which socket the cpu got and the size .
it has to fits to your pc case.
Look for some videos on youtube .There are some good guidlines
for cooler installin.
A cpu cooler is not very expensive but most a time a lot better than the standart cooler.

I need a cpu fan what size does it take


It goes by which socket you have. I am an Intel connoisseur so my knowledge ends with Intel PCs.

If your processor is an early Intel Pentium 4, you will want a socket 478 CPU cooler.

If your processor is a late Intel Pentium 4 or Intel Core 2 Duo/Quad (~2ghz+) you will want a socket 775 CPU cooler. Luckily this socket is still in wide use and many can be found locally or online.

If your processor is an Intel Core i7, you will want a socket 1366 cooler.

Just go to a local PC store and ask for an LGA478, LGA775, or LGA1366 CPU heatsink.

IF you trust yourself, take apart the laptop and apply a thin coat of thermal paste to the processor, and put it abck together. This should help.

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:

My AMD X 2 4000+ Windsor is overheatting


Hi, you shouldnt even switch on the PC if its running at that temperature, machine will be restarting and shutting down on you.
If you just bought it, you should take it back to the shop.
Otherwise you need to remove the old heatsink and fan and apply new thermal paste to the cpu and resit the heatsink, if its still running very hot over 50c you will probably find the cpu has been damaged.

Have a nice christmas
