To install a microprocessor

His publicity in CsH


4. - Connect the new mike, paying attention to his orientation. Position of the pin 1 in a socket Socket 7; to see also the photo to the beginning of the article

All the microprocessors admit the only position inside his socket or groove; if it is a question of a groove (he knows already, Slot A or Slot 1), it is enough condition observe the position of the notch that divides the groove in two unequal parts and I aligned it with the correspondent of the mike. Seguidamente, presses the mike strongly until between completely and the eyes close with a "clic". Not to break the motherboard (do not be a beast...) support another side in something (a polystyrene piece, for example).

The mikes for socket are faced observing in what area or areas of the square of pines (connectors) it is missing one or several of sayings puntitos; this area usually corresponds with a cut away corner of the mike.

Once faced, put the lever of the socket in vertical position, introduce it (it must enter practically its own weight, but insure from that it comes up to the fund) and lower the lever up to the horizontal closing position.

5. - Put silicone termoconductora on the mike (if he has her, skylight).

The silicone termoconductora, also called resin, fat, adhesive... etc., termoconductora or thermal, is a pasta that facilitates the intimate contact between the mike and the spendthrift, improving the heat transmission on having diminished the called thermal resistance of contact (one notices that I approved Heat and Industrial Cold: truth?).

Of course, it is not essential... but it always comes well, especially for mikes that warm up very much for his design, for working at big speeds or for overclocking. It is necessary very little, normally 1 drop or less, we do not want to isolate it but everything opposite: it is enough to "paint" the area of the mike in contact with the spendthrift (in the modern models, only the nucleus, which measures 1 cm2 or less).

6. - Install and connect the set of spendthrift and fan.

Normally, any mike that works to 100 MHz or more will need both refrigeration elements. If it is a question of a mike for groove, it will turn out to be more comfortable enough to install them before "puncturing" the cartridge or adapter in the motherboard, leaving for this moment the task of connecting the fan electrically.

On the contrary, in immense most of the mikes for socket there is physically impossible to install spendthrift and fan rather than the mike, except some special cases in which everything is part of an inseparable set (as in the update "kits" type Intel OverDrive).

This is usually one of the riskiest points of the installation, because it usually is necessary to realize a considerable force to manage to hook the system of subjection of the fan (normally a metallic hoop sometimes helped with screws or other elements). In addition, the area to install the mike is always too narrow, and it is surrounded with very delicate elements... anyway, that to the minimal oversight can remain without motherboard.

Another point of bearing in mind is the relative fragility of the current mikes with design Flip-Chip: they have the nucleus "of the reverse", so that it begins to show towards the fan instead of towards the motherboard. The heat dissipation is better, but if we are sufficiently beasts after the spendthrift is too tight we can go so far as to break the covering of the nucleus, in whose case micro farewell. I am enough a beast and I still have not broken any, but it is never late to start... Two details of several connectors for existing modern fans in a motherboard

The electrical connection of the fan cannot be simpler: in the modern models, it is realized by means of three thin cables that are joined to a small connector in that we will have to plug in one of the spaces enabled for it in the motherboard. The advantage of this method is that normally it allows to measure the number of revolutions of the fan (if this one and the motherboard include this option, skylight).

In case of basic badges or more ancient fans, it will have to use the typical standard connector of 4 cables that use the hard disk or the breeding animals of CD - ROM or DVD-ROM. In this case the connection is realized straight to the power supply, for what will not be possible to measure the speed of draft of the fan.
