Zalman CNPS 9500, "Why did I heat it up to 120 celcius!"

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello and good night everybody.
I had a whiny CNPS 9500 stored in my board that I decided to reinstall as my current pc just blacked out. I remember the reason I wanted to get rid of it was because it got super noisy. My intention was to oil the fan bearings first and then clean all the dust accumulated on the heatsink grills.
To unscrew the fan pedestals, I had to remove the top plate of the heatsink base. At first, I wasn't expecting any trouble out of this, since the thing looked solidly soldered to the heatpipes. Well, the solder turned out quite runny and it melted when I reset the oven temperature higher than 100 celcius - 120 celcius to be exact - in a rush to vapourise all the residue water drops left after washing in the sink.
A "thump" and I got shivers. Could the heatpipes' solders have melted in the process? I might have fixed it undoing the steps; however I am wondering if further duration at 120 celcius could have emptied the heatpipe coolants. Damn, what kind of solder is this? Lead?mad.gif

Solder has melting points between 90c and 400c depending on composition. Not sure what kind is used for coolers and heat pipes but it is possible you killed it.
