Cooler system

Boring with your pc? Nothing to do? LOL nevermind, let's have some fun with our own pc. Take a look this MSI motherboard.

Ok now i teach how to upgrade you cooler system on your motherboard. Some of motherboard when we running couple of hours, the temperature is low, but some very high. You can try touch top of chipset or cooler. it's very hot. In the picture I marked 2 chipset. First chipset have "VIA" on the top. That we call South bridge controller and the other one (center of motherboard) we call it North bridge controller.

At north bridge have cooler - heatsink already. You can change it with other heatsink with the big one or with whatever you think it's more better than before. Cost only below RM40. Or you can put a fan on the top of cooler. Cost RM10 and just screw on the top. Remember, before you buy a heatsink or fan or both, make sure the cooler for north bridge. Not for south bridge.

For south bridge, base on my experience, some motherboard very high temperature but some others not. It's depent what you did with you pc, surfing will have low temp but when you play a game, the temp very high. Normally for south bridge no need heatsink. But we need some fun and extra cool. Before you buy cooler for south bridge, take a look at your motherboard, is it have a mounting (hole) for south bridge or not. Normally no hehehe

So what we need just buy cooler for south bridge with double sided glue tape. Thats mean you need stick it on the top of chipset. Don't worry, double sided glue tape come with the heatsink. It's already have at bottom of heatsink.

It's really need your attentions if you always play a game with your pc. It's Ok if we not change any things but more better if we did. If you have plan to change your motherboard, better you think about motherboard like this >>:)

It's cool aight?

tips: how to know your computer system having high temperature? It's simple, you can hear of sound from cooling fan. If your cpu very hot, fan will spinning more speed and make more noisy sound. After cpu will drop the temperature, fan will spin at normal level and less sound. But If your fan spinning at top speed none stop, I recommand better you check your cooler before it's too late

HOW TO: Clean up cooler + cpu (P3)

Put back fan with heatsink and after that join back frame with heatsink together

After finish, put heatsink with fan to the motherboard socket. Make sure it's very tight and don't forget connect the power cable back, else your fan will not running

Now turn on you system and check the temperature reading. It's should be show less than before you clean the heatsink.

HOW TO: Clean up cooler + cpu (P2)

Clean up fan from dust using brush
Do Not using water

Clean up heatsink from dust using water

Dry up the heatsink from water before put it back

HOW TO: Clean up cooler + cpu (P1)

Temperature very important for computer. Coz of overheat your pc can damage. Now days, modern pc have system which will cut off automatically when temperature very high or reach high level. User can set it up when system will cut off. Example, my pc will cut off when temperature reach 55°C. How ever it's up to you, you can set high or low example 45° or 90°C.

Before start, please turn off all electricity power and remove all cable from cpu, like monitor cable, power cable, keyboard, mouse or any cable attach with pc.

Take a look cpu temperature, it's show 42°C before we clean up the fan, heatsink & cpu

Take out cooler from the motherboard socket

After remove cooler from the socket

Take off frame socket from heatsink carefully

It's look like this after that

Now take off fan from heatsink

It's easy to clean up after take out all of them from heatsink
