Question about Intel D845GVSR Motherboard
Hello. My hp pavilion 7955 has been running slow lately. While inspecting the motherboard i noticed that the 1.5 by 2 inch silver block located near the centre of my board had detached and is now held by only 2 metal clips. I tried attaching it back but the other 2 clips end up popping off. Also looks like an adhesive was used to help hold the block to the motherboard. Is there any products or solutions to re-attach it on my own? Any help is much appreciated. thx
From your description the square aluminium block is the heat sink that has thermal paste on the bottom of the heat sink. It is not an adhesive that helps hold the heat sink on the CPU. This is placed (clipped) over the CPU to keep the CPU from overheating.
When the clips are attached properly, it holds the heat sink and fan firmly against the CPU.
There are recesses that hold the clips in place unless they are broken.
