    Evercool K803-925CA Heatsink - Installation

    (Page 3 of 5 )

    Installation of the Evercool heatsink could not be simpler. Remove any existing heatsink and thermal compound on the CPU. Then apply a grain of rice sized amount of the provided white thermal paste onto the processor. Evenly spread the paste over the processor, leaving a thin and even coating. Use any excess paste on the base of the heatsink to cover the imperfections.

    This picture shows the next step. Once you have applied the appropriate amount of thermal compound, carefully place the heatsink over the CPU socket. Then place the clip over the socket bracket that is provided with all motherboards, and place the lever in the locked position.

    The lever is now placed in the locked position firmly securing the heatsink onto the CPU

    Once the heatsink is securely mounted on the processor, attach the fan power cord to the CPU fan header on the motherboard. This prevents the motherboards BIOS from thinking the CPU fan has failed and is no longer running. Some motherboards will not allow you to boot the system without a fan in place. If you want to run the fan from another power source, you can disable CPU fan detection in your motherboard’s bios. Once you have completed installing the heatsink, check to make sure it is sitting properly on the CPU and the fan is plugged into its power source. Then you are ready to boot the system.
