Hello, I tried to fix my sister´s computer, she had a broken blade from the fan on the stock heatsink, I bought a replacement, a DeepCool Beta40 for AMD processors compatible with the socket and the processor.
the problem is that when I left unplugged the machine for a few days and then I start it a strange sound/vibration comes out from the heatsink/cooler but just for a few seconds until it reaches high RPMS
The procedure I followed to disassemble and mount the new heatsink is as follow:
Unscrew old fan (stock SEMPRON cooler)
release the heatsink
twist it a little to avoid detaching CPU.
disconnect the cooler from MOBO
take out the heatsink
clean with isopropyl alcohol the surface of the CPU
waited for 3 to 4 minutes to dry out the surface of the CPU
apply thermal paste in a DOT config
locate over the CPU the new heatsink with proper position
lock the new heatsink/cooler with the lever
connect the FAN power cable to MOBO
and started up the system.
It might be possible that working in such a condition, with one less blade, the screws on the socket loosen up (Back of the MOBO) making that the strange noise???
the sound lasts for 20~25 seconds, and the sound stops.
the heatsink and fan are firmly attached
Any help would be appreciated.
Sorry if i have some Mistake , Spanish is my natural language.
Thanks in advance.
