Shutdown due to thermal condition

\015 Need heatsink pad for dell dimension e510\015

Answers :

Heatsink -pad-?
Just get the heatsink for the CPU in there and mount it properly; see the ThermalTake site for instructions and some examples of models. Surely you didn't misplace the heatsink that came with it? The most likely situation is that the fan got unplugged somehow or jammed up with lint; in that case just take the thing outside and clean it with compressed air, and perhaps replace the fan with a new one with the same tach configuration (4pins...maybe 3 for an older system.)
You don't need a pad. You need some heatsink compound. You can get it at a store like Radio Shack.
