Any small CPU cooler could fit into this crow space computer?

I had been try to buy a quieter CPU cooler for this computer to get rid of the intolerable noise it made. But turn out this crow space computer can't even contain a 92mm cpu cooler like this one (Thermaltake CL-P0370 92mm Enter CPU Cooler )
So does any one can recommend me a small cooler that can fit into this computer? By the way I heart about people say some computer support change cpu fan speed in BIOS. Is this computer support this feature? or any

That Thermaltake Cpu cooler you show is HUGE! Not surprised it won't fit! lol! It's 117mm Long x 102mm Wide x141mm Tall.
That's about 4-1/2 inches Long by 4 inches Wide by 5-1/2 inches Tall!

Suggestion for CPU cooler? Hmmmm, how about a ZEROtherm CF900? It's 100mm Long X 94mm Wide X 77mm Tall.
Here's the PDF file download for it's installation guide,

Speedfan is a software many people use to control CPU fan speed,

Perhaps you should try it. To change your fan speed in your BIOS Setup utility, you access BIOS Setup, and look in Advanced BIOS options. See if this option is there. I would use care, hence why I posted Speedfan instead.

Hi my Acer T180 cpu fan is very loud. Will I be able to replace this with a quieter one?


Yes, it's a standard AM2 cooler that you can replace yourself. Just make sure the one you will buy will fit on the board - the space is limited on the sides so a cooler with horizontally raised fan will be the best. One like

What kind of CPU coolers are compatible with HP Pavilion a1710n?


That's a hard question to answer, you need to fine out what CPU you have inside and then look up CPU coolers for that CPU style. Since your using a pre assembled machine you may have a specialized hole pattern making an aftermarket cooler hard to find. and use.

Motherboard power


hey, without seeing it its quite hard, if the cpu fan aint running you have either not connected the cpu fan cable up, or connected it to the wrong place,
are you sure you fitted the cpu the correct way round when you removed it,
and depending on the processor in the computer make sure you aint damaged any of the pins etc on the cpu.

if you can supply some pictures or something can probably help you better

My heat sink got dirty and caused a thermal event alarm (overheated) the computer will shut down when the cpu is taxed. do i need a new cpu


No, if the computer will start and it run bios screen and boots into windows
the cpu is fine, you need to get a better cpu cooler.

Buy a better cpu cooler for your socket, coolers are designed for the Socket that the processor plugs into.

Go to Newegg.com and llok for a cooler, you will see reviews by people
and if they liked the cooler, there are little eggs next to the product
is it has high ratings, you will see what I mean when you look at the site.


The page I posted is already on the cooler page, just llok to the left side
and look at sockets and pick your socket out to look at coolers for your system.

Fan sounds like it taking off when downloading and surfing alot of pages and doing maintance its a dell otiplex gx280


Hello,

Open your machine while its running and check the power supply fan. The CPU fan will speed up to try and make up for the power supply fan that is not running. Both fans are temp controlled so if one is not working the computer will overheat and cause the other fan to speed much faster than it should run. You need to check it quick because overheating will damage the motherboard, hard drive and cpu.

Hp a 620n pc freezing up????


It does sound like an overheating computer they are designed nowadays to shut themselves down if there is a problem

What you should do is check the fan assembly and if it is loose at all that would give good reason to do what I am going to advise.

Disconnect the fan from the board.

Check your manual for the exact instructions but you should remove the cooler completely

DO NOT REMOVE THE CPU

Now with nothing more than isopropynol and cotton bud sticks or another alcohol based cleaner remove the old thermal grease / sticker from the top of the CPU (make sure it is clean)

At this point it is up to you but you could consider a newer better cooler
You could take your old cooler to a good computer shop show them it and just ask for a better one

If you are using your original cooler then here we go
Do the same with the underside of the cooler.
While the cooler is off it may be worth giving it a good 8low job
.
Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)
Be careful about how much you put on

Here are some basic instructions

Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.

If everything went to plan you should now be back in business.

Another consideration is that many cases have places in them for extra fans and usually extra connections on the motherboard too.

They are quick and easy to fit.

Quite often I will fit TWO in what is called a push/pull configuration. One pulls cool air in while the other pushes hot air out.

Loud fan noise


have one very similar, they only have a fan in the power supply, and a small, small fan on the CPU. If it's the fan in the power supply making the noise, some people would say replace the whole unit, some would say replace the fan. I would replace the fan, but if you don't want to take the risk of getting electrocuted, that's probably a great idea. A power supply can be found somewhat cheaply, but one that fits those cases might not be quite as easy.

Finding a cpu cooler replacement for motherboard with screwholes.


You should be able to purchase a cooler that fits your existing cooler plate.
Replacing a cooler can sometimes be a lot of work. Sometimes you have to remove the motherboard from the case and remove the cooler plate from the underside of the motherboard. Then coolers that use "just the holes" can be used. Or another (different) cooler plate can be installed that may have came with your new cooler. In my experience, the coolers that use "just the holes" (no plate) leave a lot to be desired. Plus, if you're not careful, you can damage the motherboard by applying too much force when installing the fan. If you use a new plate, don't forget to install the insulator between the motherboard and the plate, if it comes with one.
Be careful to protect against unwanted electrostatic discharge. Always touch the metal computer case before touching any parts inside the computer. Also, if you remove the mobo, take careful note of where all the wires go before disassembly.
