Having problems with your HP COMPAQ BUSINESS DESKTOP DC5000 SFF - 1 X P4 2.8 GHZ - RAM 1GB - HD 1 HP (PJ143USABA) ?

Need to find a new alum&copper heatsink and fan combo

\015 I have an Asus P4 478 microATX mobo, with a rectangular hole pattern to mount the heat sink. The 4 holes are on 3-inch by 2 3/8-inch centers. I have not been able to locate on the web, the proper heatsink with fan attached, that fits this hole pattern. The Asus mobo is Model P4SD-NOAGP-R, and fits into a HP Compaq business desktop machine, Model dc 5000 SFF. Any help is appreciated. The heatsink must be a rectangular block of aluminum, and have spring-loaded fasteners that attach through the 4 mobo holes, which are 0.164 diameter.Regards, goofy aka Joe Y\015

Answers :

This is a standard micro atx board. The holes you are seeing will be on any 478 mobo, you just have to remove the black bracket, which is usually achieved by lifting the center pin in each of the corners.

Hi, I have an HP Pavilion a367c and the CPU fan is making a lot of noise. The noise comes and goes but "go" periods have been getting shorter :( . I think the bearings are dying. It looks like a typical three wire 80x70x25mm fan but has two more white wires that go down into the square copper heatsink fins. Can the fan be replaced separately or do I need a new heatsink/fan assembly? Is the CPU glued to the heatsink or will it come off cleanly and just need new thermal goop when replaced?


I was going to say dust is whats causing it but then i relized you have opened your computer. So nevermind that. The fan speed is controlled by the motherboard. The Pentium 4 processor tells your motherboard how hot it is. so then the mot ... HP Computer System Cooling
