Heatsink problem with Pentium D stock, help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Okay, I was dusting my PC yesterday and decided to remove the cooler (never been removed) to better clean it. I have no idea what I did while removing it, but when it came around to putting it back one of the pins wouldn't push in properly (LGA 775). Nevertheless, the computer booted, only to shut down after lagging on POST.

Overheat.

I removed the heatsink again to see the that the thermal paste had hardened, and I assumed that was the problem and went out to buy an Arctic Silver Ceramique 2 in the morning.

Followed the instructions to apply the paste on AS's website (1mm thick horizontal line along where the cores were supposed to be, for Pentium D), and computer boots fine.

However, idle temps at bios are around 72 C and I'm getting severe lag while playing videos and especially when gaming. Hasn't shut down since I glued back the cooler though. Yes, I did clean with ethanol (didn't have isopropyl) and an old lens cloth when it dried.

So, is it the one pin that's not fully pushed down, or do I need to apply more thermal paste? Any help would be appreciated.

thanks,
Cake

I believe its because of the broken pin. A few years ago I had a pushpin break on me after reapplying AS5 and because it wasn't making proper contact I keep getting beeps telling me that my computer was overheating and if I let it go for too long it would shut down.

Went to Fry's the next day bought a new cooler and it was all good.

Edit: I believe I had a Pentium D 925.

FUUUUUUUUUU-

Thanks for the quick response. So new cooler? I was about to buy one but I had a hard time finding one that beats the stock Pentium D hands-down and doesn't cost half a kidney (I'm in Bulgaria). And I was planning on waiting for Ivy to get a new cooler... oh well.

Is there any hope for the current one?

Yeah you can remove all the pushpins and get the correct size nuts and bolts but if you don't have some kind of back plate I think it will warp you motherboard.

Just make sure you use plastic washers to separate the motherboard from the nut/bolt depending on which one touches the motherboard on the bottom to keep it from scratching/shorting.

I think there are also bolt down kits you can buy that you could possibly use for your purpose but all around a new hsf would probably be best.
