Any Pentium 4 fan will do. The pc will not boot without a CPU fan plugged in.

Hey man, I saw a previous post where you were the only person to help the customer out. Probably pretty easy question, but my heat sink retention bracket for the CPU broke. It is an HP pavilion 514n. ...


I'd suggest release the other side and remove the fan & heat sink. They often come as a unit. Its very common to buy a new fan and the heat sink comes with it. It really depends on what processor your using. Its getting hard to find pent 3 stuff but otherwise you should be able to find another heat sink or fan, or combo with both and the bracket to fasten it is part of the heatsink fan assembly. Take the whole assembly to your local computer geek shop. They'll have another one.OR have a bones system they'll borrow from. You should find it on-line somewhere, but it would take awhile to find one. If you can carry in to a shop you'll be more likely to leave with the right thing. You might be able to rig it with something, but with the much heat around it and voltage being so close it wouldnt be a very good choice. I had one that broke one and then a little piece started rubbing the fan and making noise. I think the heat is what made the plastic so brittle and why it just broke.

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.

Mt dimension 3000 gets very noisy when the weather


That's because it heats up more easily and faster, which usually makes the fans spin faster and results in being noisy. Have you ever cleaned out the interior of the computer? If not, or if it's been awhile since it's been done, then buy some canned air for dusting electronics, open the side of the computer case (while it's not powered ON), and blow out the fans and the heat sink. If you get alot of just clogging up the heat sink, then it will not dissipate heat correctly; which results in the fans running more often. It that doesn't help any, then I would try to figure out if one of the fans is making alot of noise because it's going bad. You can find replacement fans on ebay, or at local electronics\computer shops.

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

Heat sink fell off processor


Go to your local Staple,Radio Shack or Best Buy and get a new heat sink and fan assembly, if you are lucky it will thread through the motherboard so you can reset it onto the processor chip. DO NOT PUT SUPERGLUE ON THE PROCESSOR.
AND DO NOT RUN COMPUTER WITHOUT HEAT SINK AND FAN IN PLACE OR ELSE>

K8S-LA mobo heat sink fell off.


That is the 'Northbridge' chip that provides the I/O interfacing for the main chip. The heat sink is normally held on with glue as you surmised, and should be re-done with a thermal conductive glue. The glue (a silver filled epoxy) is available from MCM electronics or from Mouser. Be sure to thoroughly clean the chip and heat sink before re-gluing.
