Manual not much help. I meant to bookmark something that was posted before which gave a link to a really good guide but as usual in these cases cannot find how I come about getting to it. It gave instructions of taking the fan and heatsink off in correct way and cleaning off compound and such like. Not done a cpu change before so just want a guide at side of me. I have a good idea but..........
Not being funny here but before you go to all this bother the first thing you should do is check the motherboard manufacturers website and make sure the motherboard can take the faster processor. If it can then fine go ahead. If not then you're wasting your time and would be better considering something like this click here
Done all relevant research and mobo will take new processor. Have been doing all these upgrades as learning curve not so much to greatly increase performance but to learn things about systems and to do the upgrades myself. Could have saved money and got all singing all dancing but would not have learnt anything. Did not want to build whole new computer from scratch as I thought the better option would be step by step. I had looked at these packages but thought what the hell, have a go at upgrading old system. Now have bit more knowledge of Ram, graphics, HDD, DVD RW's, monitor. Appeciate your sentiments though.
Wish I could remember where the guide I was looking at came from as it showed the correct way of breaking the seal of compound between old cpu and heatsink without forcing and causing any damage. Apart from that am ready to go. Just had another thought. Will the heatsink and fan currently in system be ok for faster cpu. cpu speed will go up from 1.67ghz to 2.2ghz. My initial thought is that it should do the job. When I bought the cpu off ebay there should have been a fan with it but that has not arrived. Supposedly sent at same time as cpu.
