Having problems with your HP Pavilion a620n (PC028A) PC Desktop ?

Heat Sink You were very helpful. Motherboard is not broken nor is the heat sink. This particular one has 2 arms. I can see where one attaches but not the other. Any ideas? Is it imperative that both arms are attached if it is glued in place?


Answers :

Just to answer your question about the heat sink arms being attached, yes it is imperative, should the heat sink fall off or isn't applied firmly your cpu could overheat and either fry it or causing severe damage to it.

I bought a faulty heat sink once for one of my old computers, put it in and ran the computer found out a little too late that the heat sink fan wasn't running.
