Heatsink mounting bracket - removal or replacement?

Q: Heatsink mounting bracket - removal or replacement?

I am replacing an old mobo due to constant running and bulging capacitors. But its my first time dinking with anything mobo related. Or really anything that isn't replacing a bad PSU.
The old one is an MSI P965 Neo-7.
The new one is a Biostar G41 DVI.
I have the CPU installed fine and went to put the heatsink on top (Ultra brand). The screw holes are too small. Of course, that's when I noticed that I didn't remove the mounting bracket for the heatsink from the back of the old mobo. But I can't get it off. It seems to be glued in using some kind of foam tape pad. The new mobo didn't come with a mounting bracket.
Is there some kind of way to remove the old mounting bracket and install it on the new mobo OR do I have to find myself a new mounting bracket (or heatsink) somewhere?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

A: Heatsink mounting bracket - removal or replacement?

Usually some foam is placed between the mounting bracket and the back of the motherboard to prevent the board from getting short circuited. The foam has probably stuck to the two surfaces and hardened over time, which is why they seem glued together. If you aren't worried about damaging the old board (since you are replacing it), just pry off the old backplate with a screw driver.

A:Heatsink retaining bracket removal/replacement

hi mdexter2,

I went on Intel's website to find some pics of that motherboard. they have a nice page on the D865PERL that lets you view the board from all angles. going by the pics i saw, you should be able to remove the bracket without removing the motherboard. it appears that it uses plastic pins & anchors to hold the bracket to the motherboard. (make sure there are no screws holding it as well)

1. the little white pins (they look like white circles from above) in each corner will need to be pulled (or pried) out.

2. once you have all four white pins removed, you can pull the bracket right off the motherboard. it will take a small amount of force to compress the anchors as you pull up on the bracket.

that's it!

if it the bracket uses another retention method that requires the removal of the motherboard, don't worry it's very simple. the only tool you need is a phillips screwdriver. if you're worried about all the wires... don't be. they only fit where they're supposed to go. if you're still worried, then take a picture before you unplug anything so you'll have an idea of where each wire goes.

hope this helps, cheers :wave:

My mounting bracket is here:

The center of it seems to be glued to the Mobo as it is almost impossible to remove. My question is, is there any way to get it off without damaging the motherboard, or do I need to buy a new one?

A:Mounting Bracket is stuck

Try to get a screwdriver (non magnetic) with a straight bit to pry it off. Or try a floor tack remover if you have one. Just use something thin to put under it and pry it up. I don't know if that would damage your motherboard but I highly doubt it.

SUBJECT: I need a better bracket for securing my new heatsink.

I just received a new heatsink in the mail.

Description of new heatsink:

Thermaltake heatsink.
model: Tower112 Heatpipe cooling CL-P0024.
This is a heavy chunk of copper.

Description of motherboard:
ABIT model VI7.
CPU Intel pentiun 4.

After opening the box containing the heatsink,
I realizied, "this is one heavy chunk of copper".
After looking through the manual which came with the unit.
I thought, maybe, the bracket/base plate
that comes with the heatsink may not be strong enough
to hold it up (In the ATX confitguation).
... Being supendid above my PCI cards and PCI devices ...

Question: Do you know of a company
that makes a more heavy-duty bracket/base plate?
The bracket which comes with the heatsink is rather weak.
I don't trust it.

Thank You.

Awaiting your response.

A:Asus Lga 775 heatsink bracket?

You should be looking for a metal to metal contact with heat transfer paste between them. Most heatsinks have a pad of paste already in place, protected by a transit cover. There should be no plastic between the CPU and the heatsink. Looking at the images shows that you have to remove the existing backplate and fit the custom one. As this is metal there may be a cover to prevent shorts on the back of the motherboard.
Hope this helps

A:HP a420n needs a replacement heatsink cooling fan

Your replacement fan may be one that doesn't have speed sensing.
You may be able to disable the fan speed detection warning in
the BIOS setup.
In order to use the speed detection,you need a fan that has the
third conductor.
If you have problems finding one in your area,you might consider
buying a cheap,stock amd 939 heatsink and taking the fan off it.
Something like this.
Heatsink Ebay.

That fan size is pretty standard and the speed is a matter
of preference.
Faster is more cooling,but more noise.
Basically,the motherboard checks that the fan is running.
If not,it will issue a warning or shut down.
It's usually a warning and will shut down at the cut off temperature.

Basically, either my motherboard or processor has died, so I have gone to remove the fan / heatsink system (A Coolermaster). The fan unclips easier than the plastic system shown on Intel's website, but the heatsink appears firmly attached to the chip! I'm guessing that the thermal pad melts to produce a better 'seal' but it means when I lift the heatsink out - which requires a litter force, the heatsink comes up with the chip attached to the underside.

Obviously this means I've removed the chip without lifting the ZIF bar, but I don't see how else it would be possible to remove the heatsink - there is no lateral space for me to 'wiggle' the heatsink as suggested in the intel article.

Any ideas, comments or advice?

Many Thanks

I'm trying to replace a friends' motherboard. Everything was going smoothly except I can't get the heatsink/fan off of the old board.

In the past, all (2) of the heatsinks I've dealt with have had a lever release that you push and the locking mechanism pops off.

Well this doesn't have that. It has the same style of locking mechanism, though.

It's in an eMachine, the standard stock heatsink. I don't have a model or anything for it.

A:CoolerMaster Heatsink/Fan Removal.

Is this a question of how it is disconnected(clips, screws, etc) or is it that you have it disconnected but can't get it to seperate from the CPU?

If it is the latter the Thermal interface material acts like glue and can make it difficult to remove without ripping the CPU out of the socket. Even though this is a guide for AMD64's i think it will provide some helpful info for you:HSF removal guide

Forgive me, but I find it hard to believe that if you put that machine together once, you forgot how to take it apart now.
It is human nature to never forget something that you did on your own.
That hold's true for computers also.
Maybe it will suffice if you just unscrew the fan from the heatsink and clean the fan and heatsink fins with a 1/4 - 1/2 inch paintbrush.

Yes indeed.  I ordered the HDD bracket 21YWY and HDD Interposer Cable DG95V from Dell, bought a 61WH battery from eBay (Dell did not carry it at the time....) and a Samsung EVO 1TB SSD drive from Amazon.  It was easy to install (although you need a very small size 3 torx scree to remove the bottom cover) and works like a charm.

i just installed a new msi motherboard and everything started to load and after a few minutes it just died while i was trying to load the os. i put in the d bracket that came with the board and the leds indicate that the memory module is damaged or not installed properly. does this mean the memory mod that i installed on the main board or on the mainboard itself

A:d bracket 2 on msi ms-6570 motherboard

It probably means the ram that you have in it, however i am not to good with msi so you shoudl check your mobo manual. Try taking out the ram and putting it back in. See if you get any wierd beeps. Make sure your ram has the right frequencies and speed.
If you overclocked it undo it, if possible test the ram on another system. Double check your jumper settings to see that you havent messed up anythign and check your dip switches (if you have any).

Hope i helped.

I'm using an IBM Netvista 6578 LBG desktop PC and wish to install a second hard drive (HD). I do not have a problem with the cabling, jumpers, etc. but I've been trying to locate a supplier for the fitting bracket.

I want to fit the HD in the bay immediately underneath the CD drive and require a slide in sleeve that has the mounting points for the HD screws.

I can't be the first person who wants to do this, but I can't find anyone who supplies the part (it's always possible that I'm not using the correct keywords in my searches).

Can anyone recomend a supplier of the part please?

The Dell Dimension 3000 is a new computer so the Spare Parts department should have the brackets for the floppy drive. I have been working for Dell Sales until last year but I left before this computer came out. But usually Spare Parts have these parts for new computers and some old ones too.

If you bought the floppy drive at Dell and did not get the brackets, call customer service because they need to replace the whole drive or send you the brackets for free.

If you lost them or broke them then you will need to buy them. No idea about the price since I was not in Spare Parts.

I hope this can help you.

Hi all,

I'm starting a new pc build, and would like to install an eSATA bracket that converts 2 SATA ports to eSATA.

What do I need to look for in a motherboard to ensure that it will support hot-swapping external HDD's?

Would any relatively recent motherboard that has an onboard RAID/AHCI controller allow this?


A:eSATA Bracket - Hot Swapping external HDD

Hi IniquiTrance and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

Most motherboards have on-board RAID controllers, however for eSATA capability your motherboard also needs to have one or more SATA sockets that are designated as being hot-swappable. These may or may not be RAID capable. Obviously, these can also be used internally, but if you wish to have eSATA capability, you need to ensure that the motherboard has the correct type of socket. Generally speaking, if it does it will also come with the bracket. Check the motherboard manual and what it says on the box. You could also see what it says on the manufacturers website prior to purchase.

I do believe those are specific to that make and model card and not generic or interchangeable. At best all you will find on line are blanks to fill empty slots. If you are handy with a drill and a file you could make one from a blank. You might be able to get one from the original manufacturer, but the cost may not be worth it, even if you can get it.

They won't fit at the same time.  The bracket for the 2.5 SSD doesn't fit when the M2 is in there, so don't bother trying. You have to decide which one you want and maybe use an external network drive, external storage or Dropbox, etc. for more storage.

Hi keronkkumar If you're using Windows 8 or later, you can mount an .iso by right-clicking on it and selecting Mount. Otherwise, I don't know why you wouldn't want to use DEAMON Tools Lite. I always used it and it's perfectly safe. Same for PowerISO except that it bundles programs (PUPs). You need to pay attention when installing it and opt-out the offers (uncheck them and use a "Custom" or "Advanced" install). If you do that, you'll be able to install the program only and nothing else.

According to all the research I've done, this should be a fairly straightforward matter:

Add/remove Windows components
Install Services for NFS and Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications (with the downloaded extras)
From command line: mount server:/share z:

However, it doesn't seem to be that simple.

I've tried just about every guide I could find on the matter. My first problem is that when I try to run the "mount" command, there's no executable found for it. A search of my hard drive reveals one buried deep in an obscurely named Windows folder, but when I run the help command (mount /?), it just outputs a blank line, and when I try to use it to mount a share, it does the same (ie nothing).

Trying to mount the share from a "net use" command, or through Windows Explorer produces nothing useful.

does anybody know how to mount .daa or .ed2k?

A:image mounting
suggests that .daa files are poweriso images, so you can try opening them with poweriso (or any other image mounting software that supports the format).
.ed2k or edonkey links (kind of like torrent links). I'd suggest opening them with emule.

I can generally do it with mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbdrive but since I installed an USB webcam, I have no idea what /dev/sdxx to use.

I've tried /dev/sdb1 but it doesn't work.

I only have two USB ports on this machine ( i815 chipset I believe ) & RH9 so Kernel 2.4.20. Any ideas how I could get this thing to mount without having to reboot without the webcam ?

PS. yes I've tried unplugging the webcam & then doing a mount /dev/sda1 again but still no go.

Use lsusb to list your USB devices

You can also modify your hotplug configuration to make it automatically mount the flash disk.
