Advice 1: How to remove the cooler with the motherboard

On many modern motherboards as additional cooling for the chipsets use additional coolers. But over time they may collect dust and they are beginning to create high levels of noise. To restore the normal operation of the cooler, remove it with the mother Board and clean. Also can happen that the cooler can completely fail. Then you need to replace it for a new one.
How to remove the cooler with the motherboard
You will need
  • Computer, cooler, screwdriver
Instruction
1
Disconnect the computer from the mains. Unplug the system unit all attached devices. Remove the cover from the system unit. It is fastened with screws. Unscrew them. On some buildings there may be more latches. Now, notice how it attaches the cooler to the motherboard. Option can be two. In the first embodiment, it can be fastened with screws to the front of the motherboard. In this case, in order to remove the cooler, just Unscrew the four screws. Pick a suitable screwdriver and Unscrew these screws. After that just disconnect the cooler from the motherboard and remove it from the system unit.
2
In the second variant, the cooler can be mounted to the motherboard from the back side. To remove the attachment, you will have to first remove the motherboard from the system unit. Disconnect from the motherboard all the power supply wires, including the wire on and restart the computer. Remove the four screws on the edges of the motherboard. Then see if it still screws. If you find them Unscrew.
3
After Unscrew all the screws, gently remove the motherboard from the computer case. From the back of the motherboard, Unscrew all the screws that attach the cooler to it, and disconnect it.
4
Perform all necessary operations with the cooler (clean, grease) and screw it back. After the cooler was connected, install the motherboard into the computer. Fasten it to the wall of the housing of the computer, and then connect the power wires and the wires coming from the power supply. Close the cover of the system unit not in a hurry. Connect the computer to the power supply and turn it on. Check the operation of the cooler. If everything works, shut down the computer and secure the system cover. Connect all previously disconnected devices.

Advice 2: How to install coolers in the case

So You've decided that the current cooling system installed on Your computer cannot cope with their tasks and it is necessary to improve its characteristics. One of the most effective and budget way to solve the problem is to install additional case coolers. This is today and will talk.
How to install coolers in the case
You will need
  • - One or more case coolers;
  • - Screwdriver;
  • - Tools to create holes in the metal case of the system unit - drill, round file;
  • - Material for mitigating vibration of the cooler (dense foam rubber, soft rubber, etc.);
  • - The screws supplied with the cooler.
Instruction
1
To start, You need to carefully watch Your system unit and to determine locations for installation of coolers. For this it is necessary to pay attention to such part of the housing, as upper cover, bottom front panel, side cover, end part of the system unit. Remember that the availability of holes depends on the case design. Not always in its upper and lower parts it is possible to find a place for a cooler.The maximum effect can only be achieved if all of the above places for installation of coolers. If you want you can do the body extra holes yourself, or ask friends of craftsmen. In extreme cases you can always find an inexpensive option system unit with the desired design.

Next, you need to identify which parts of the body should install coolers on blowing and on blowing. The best is the option to install an equal number of coolers on blowing and blowing (but do not forget that there is a case that violates this rule). In order to determine where, what cooler to put to denote the necessary conditions to create a good cooling system: do not direct the flow of cold air towards heated, the most heated elements of the hardware of the computer first is to bring fresh air from outside, and then bring the heated air out. Under the aforesaid conditions, offers the option to install a cooler on the front panel has a fan for blowing, top — blowing side — blowing, rear — blowing. This scheme provides a flow of fresh air to all the necessary to cool areas, and then effectively removing it from the case.
3
There are two main types of suspension rotors cooler is the sleeve bearings (Sleeve bearing) or rolling contact (Ball bearing). The fan may be one or two bearings, and sometimes they combine different styles. The most reliable are considered to be fans with ball bearings. To ensure quiet and efficient work it is necessary to choose the cooler of diameter 120 mm. They have a large area of effective operation, and typically operate at lower rpm, which significantly reduces the level of noise.
4
In order not to confuse which way it will blow the fan — note the symbol of the direction of air flow, placed on the side of the cooler. Usually there are drawn two arrows — one indicating the direction of rotation of the blades, and the other air flow direction.When connecting make sure the power connectors are fully suitable for installing coolers. When connecting connectors, the efforts should be minimal, otherwise we should think about the correct choice of connector.
5
After everything is installed, conduct a test run of the system. Occasionally there are situations when the installed cooler. even despite the fact that he just bought or recently oiled. The cause may be resonance with the computer case.To eliminate vibration, you can cut the gasket to fit the size of the cooler and lay it between the case and fan. You will help any material capable of absorbing vibration, such as soft rubber or the like seal for doors.
Useful advice
Be sure to set the coolers were always well-oiled. To change the grease once every six months or even less frequently;

In addition, the time please clean the fan from dust. Remember that the more dirt in the cooling system, the less effective it is.

Advice 3: How to clean cooler on the computer

The cooler is a small fan located inside the system unit of a computer. Such cooling devices inside the system unit can be several. Periodically must be cleaned of dirt and dust. It is necessary to clean the PC from dust, if you have changed the sound of the coolers of the system unit, or the corps began to warm noticeably stronger.
How to clean cooler on the computer
You will need
  • - Phillips screwdriver
  • - soft brush
  • vacuum cleaner with adjustable suction power
Instruction
1
Turn off the computer, unplug the power cord from the AC outlet. Using a screwdriver, remove the screws that hold the side wall of the system unit. Usually the screws are located on the rear panel of the computer.
2
Put the system unit on its side. Put on a vacuum cleaner plastic nozzle. Turn the vacuum cleaner on a minimal suction power and gently clean the inner surface of the system unit from dust. Try not to touch the cleaner circuit Board and located their items. Even though it's plastic, not metal, but still you may accidentally displace some capacitor or relay on the Board.
3
For greater cleanliness, you can wipe the surface with an alcohol pad. Wool is better not to use because it leaves fibers if you accidentally clings to elements of the boards. Now that you have removed dust, loose on the body, you can do cleaning for case fans.
4
If in the system unit there are extra coolers, remove them. Typically, just vacuum them enough. Take the coolers to the bathroom and clean them with a brush, shaking off the dust in the sink.
5
In the same way clean the cooler on the graphics card. Remove the video card if you have it installed in a separate fee and are not integrated into the motherboard. Brush dust off of the blades of the cooler outside. Don't forget to brush between the fins of the radiator. Remove the cooler with the cooler of the video card is not worth it. At the end of the cleaning blow the radiator through for yourself or by using the function of blowing dust on the vacuum cleaner. Clean off the dust with a vacuum cleaner, brush or alcohol wipe.
6
The cooler on the motherboard harder to clean. To remove it, if you have no thermal paste to the CPU. So again, clean brush and a vacuum cleaner, carefully follow the flying dust, it is better to catch them with a vacuum cleaner. See, that dust is not settled in asiamah for devices on the motherboard. This may lead to a short circuit, so after cleaning the cooler on the motherboard again go all across the Board with a vacuum cleaner, paying special attention to the connectors.
7
If you have thermal grease, you can remove the CPU together with heatsink and clean them more thoroughly and carefully. Then use alcohol wipes to clean the stone surface of the CPU and the back of the radiator from the remnants of the dried up thermal paste. Apply new thermal grease on the stone evenly and install the CPU heatsink and CPU in place.
8
Insert the card and secure it with a screw. Set back an additional cooler if they were. Close the system unit.
Note
Check that the brush did not climb the villi. If she is almost bald, than you'll leave lint anywhere on the Board computer.

Advice 4: How to remove the radiator from the chipset

The radiator dissipates the heat that is emitted during operation of the chip. In the operation of electronic devices there are often situations in which regular cooling is not enough. It is especially important to provide good heat dissipation for clocked chips, working with frequencies above the nominal.
How to remove the radiator from the chipset
You will need
  • - screwdriver
  • - hair dryer
  • - plastic ruler
Instruction
1
Inspect the radiator and its mounting to the Board. The most common is the fastening by means of plastic caps or latches. You can also find mounting using clamping brackets. This is the best variant of fastening of a radiator, it provides a strong uniform pressure and easy removal. In cheap devices, the cooling system is attached to the chip with a special glue. To dismantle such a construction is difficult, moreover, the hot melt adhesive has a mediocre thermal conductivity.
2
For demounting of the heat sink installed on the chip using latches that need access to the back side of the Board. You need to remove the motherboard from the computer case. Then gently squeeze the antennae of the piston and press on its tip. The piston should come out of holes in the Board. The same operation must be repeated with the other latches. After removing all the radiator caps effortlessly detach from the chip. If not, try to rotate the radiator around the axis. Thickened thermal grease may be enough to firmly hold the cooling system.
3
For dismantling the radiator fixed with a clamping bracket, use a screwdriver or other improvised tool. The challenge was to bend the bracket and bring it out of engagement with the mounting device on the Board. Remove the clamp may require considerable physical effort. It does not damage the charge jumped with a screwdriver.
4
Dismantling of radiators installed on the hot-melt - a rather risky operation. Great chance to damage the chip. Therefore dismantling should be used only if without it it is impossible. To soften the hot melt adhesive, it must be heated. This is best done in an ordinary domestic Hairdryer on medium power. Note that overheating can cause permanent damage to the chip.
5
After heating inset radiator sharpened plastic ruler. Proceed very carefully and gradually rocking the cooling system. If you push too hard, you can break away a piece of the chip, and then there is no radiator it is not required.
