CLip of motherboard felt off.


http://www.heatsinkfactory.com/cpu-retainer-clips-intel-pentium-4-478.html

That would be for an AOpen AX4SPE-UN motherboard, because it has a Socket 478 processor socket.

I had it happen to an old mobo in the past, with a Socket 478 processor socket; and no clips.

I used a straight piece of coat hanger, and went from hole to hole, on one side.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/P4-Socket-478-Intel-CPU-Retention-Retainer-Bracket-/140647148266?pt=US_Fan_Heatsin_Brackets_Accs&hash=item20bf392aea

Had a slight bend in the middle, and this bend went partially across one side of the finned Heatsink.

Small piece of coat hanger again, on the other side.
Cut to the right length, and with the correct bend, the two pieces of coat hanger, put even pressure down on the finned Heatsink.

Problem is they twisted. The pressure on the bent part against the Heatsink, made them want to spin up away, from the Heatsink.
So I added a piece of coat hanger on each side, to keep the side coat hanger pieces from twisting.

Hard to explain, and looked like something from Dr.Frankenstein's laboratory.

Worked though.

(Too much pressure, and it will break the plastic retention bracket on the motherboard.
Not even pressure on both sides, and Heatsink will not sit flat on Processor. This = No.
You just have to 'dial it in', (Coat hanger pieces), or use the correct part/s)

Where do I find the 4 plastic retention clips for this heatsink?


You can't just replace the clips, you will need to purchase the entire heat sink. Contact the manufacturer's parts dept for help ordering this or buy an aftermarket one on eBay.

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.

Intel D865GBF Motherboard


Hi Jharper91,
There is no easy way to explain how to remove your Intel® Pentium® 4 processor with out some pictures. Intel does have a site showing how to install. Once you understand how to install you'll be able to remove. Try looking through this link from Intel.
http://www.intel.com/support/processors/pentium4/sb/CS-007988.htm
Newer Intel Pentium 4 processor use 4 plastic pins to hold the retention clip onto the board. To remove them you will need to lift the motherboard out of the case. Using a needle-nose plier to squeeze the plastic ends together & pop-out the plastic pins.

The north bridge can be glued onto the chipset & have
2 pins bent inwards on themselves. Bend them in and push them through. If glued, use a hair dryer to heat the cooler, thus making the glue soften. Each board can & do use different methods to hold coolers to the chipset's. You might want to keep in mind the total db of adding a bunch of coolers. It may get very noisy for you.

I hope you find this helpful.
If I can help you more just post you're question's here.
Good Luck Jharper91!

Abit bd7m - no video, no keyboard, no mouse


Why does the BD7 board fail to POST with sirens? Is the mainboard faulty? A:
  1. If the CPU retention unit or heat sink wasn't installed correctly, the bad heat dissipation will cause P4 CPU over temperature and fail to boot up.

  2. Please check the black CPU retention is fully inserted into the holes in the mainboard. Below picture illustrates a bad installation- there is a gap between retention unit and mainboard.

  3. Please make sure the white nails were fully inserted and can prevent CPU retention unit from loosen.

  4. Double check the back side of mainboard. If the feet of CPU retention unit and white nails were correctly installed?

How to remove the cpu from mobo.


Was the heatsink screwed into the mobo or was it clipped to the plastic? If it was screwed on the processor is soldered to the mobo and cannot be removed. If its a ZIF socket then more than likely the lever has broken off and the socket is pretty useless now, time for a new mobo.
