Advice 1: How to remove amd cooler

The cooler is designed to cool the computer's processor during its work. Usually it consists of a massive metal radiator and reinforced it with a plastic fan. The whole structure is joined to the mount of the processor installed into the motherboard. When this flat surface radiator is tight to the hull of the processor, and the fan connected to the appropriate connector on the motherboard, through which it is energized.
How to remove amd cooler
Shut down the operating system and power off the key switch located on the rear side of the housing of the system unit next to the socket for the power cord. If your system unit this switch is not provided, then just remove the power cord from the outlet.
Put the system unit on the right (when viewed from the front) side surface. As you will have to make an effort, the body needs to have a stable position. If, in order to conveniently arrange, you need to disconnect all the wires on the rear surface, do it.
Remove the left side panel. Usually it is secured with two screws to the rear side of the housing and removed the shift ago.
Disconnect the power supply harnesses that connect the cooler fan to the system Board.
Determine the type of mounting of the cooler to the motherboard - there are quite a lot. In most cases the radiator cooler is pressed against the processor of the elastic metal rocker that has cutouts on both sides and catches them behind the plastic tabs on both sides of the mounting of the processor. It is necessary to consistently release first the upper edge of this arm, then lower. Some of the models of the coolers on the upper mount rocker arms have a large plastic lever - in this case will be enough to turn it to release the top end. If the lever is not, slightly press the spring side of the rocker to the Board (e.g. with a screwdriver) and remove it from the tab on the mount to the CPU. The lower edge release easy, because in the absence of tension it will be free to hang out in the groove.
Grasp the metal heat sink of the cooler and carefully remove it from the processor. The place fit the radiator to the CPU covered with thermal paste, which is quite a viscous consistency, and also was under constant pressure created by spring rocker. Therefore, no mechanical fastening, thermal grease alone can keep the heatsink on the processor package. Keep your cooler, making a great effort, better push it as far as possible in the horizontal direction to reduce thermal compound-covered area of adhesion of the two surfaces and then remove.

Advice 2: How to remove the cooler from the CPU

The cooling system in a personal computer plays a big role, because the components of computers, being without cooling quickly lose its efficiency, leaving the building. How to ensure the stable operation of the processor, how to remove the cooler from the CPU, not to damage it?
Cooler to mount on small screws
You will need
  • First of all, you will need a basic knowledge of computer: how to de-energize the system unit and remove the side cover. And the arm with a screwdriver.
At the moment there are several types of fans used in cooling systems. The most common of them are removed/put on in 3 ways, i.e., the cooler attached to the heat sink different kinds of ways:
- using small screws;

- by means of a latch;

- with additional grooves for retention.
Will consider in more detail the methods of extracting cooler with the radiator.
A small note: the cooler is a fan that mounts on the radiator. In turn, the radiator is adjacent to the platform on which is mounted processor. The cooler serves to cool the high temperature of the stone of the processor during operation.
Attention! It is necessary before removing the cooler to disconnect the system unit, turn off the computer and leaving the system and unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. You can also use the de-energizing switch that is located on the back of the PSU (not in all models of the power supply). After you remove the side cover of the system unit, disconnect the power cord of the cooler from the connector on the motherboard.
So, the most common way of fastening of the cooler – with the aid of small screws. It's pretty simple: take the appropriate size screwdriver, Unscrew small screws and cooler free.

When our cooler has a connection in the form of a latch (lever), click on the latch and pressing, to move the lever in the external from the processor side.
When mounting the latch (lever), and additional slots will need to click on the slots to release the cooler from the fan connector.
The question of how to remove a cooler from the processor can occur for several reasons:
- overheating of the component parts of the computer for cooling which meets the cooler;
- low productivity of the entire computer;
- dust the fans in the system unit.
Often, after removing the cooler from the process, apply new layer of thermal paste, it is necessary to remove the old thermal grease.
Useful advice
If the attempt to remove the cooler fails you, then the thermal paste that is on the processor has dried up. The cooler can be removed heating the CPU with a Hairdryer or just turn on the computer for a while.
