Solved Mounting problems with CPU Cooler

Post by TheWeave on 19th May 2009, 4:45 pm

I have had this Gateway 506GR computer for about five years. The CPU Cooler is beginning whine and grind. The motherboard is a Intel D915GAG pentium 4 processor 550 3.4 GHz Socket 775 4 Pin Connector. The old CPU Cooler is a Cooler Master CM V12 (screw in mount). I am about to show my ignorance here: Can I just purchase a Socket 775 cooler (screw in mount)and screw it into the existing mount. Would I have to use the back plate?
One cooler supplier said I had to use it for grounding. I'm thinking that the original mount is grounded.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Ron :hmm:

The back plate is not needed for a back plate. I dont think that lga775 stock fan, most likely foxconn HSF screws, are able to fit through your existing back plate. In the end, its quite safe without a back plate because that HSF is very light weight and doesn't require a backplate.

Thank you for your reply. I guess I will purchase a cooler such as the Masscool 8WT 15-17 (LGA775) which has the spring type screws and hope it will fasten to my mobo. I am not familiar with the "foxconn HSF screws". Can these be purchased separately?
Thanks

I belief the stock fan is also using screw type fan like in the picture.

This fan is made by foxconn if Im not wrong.

Hi
The cooler shown in the picture does't screw in. Look here:http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=2231&page=6
Evidently my mobo has a backplate installed for the original cooler. I don't want to pull my mobo so I will try a cooler with the spring type screw connectors and hope the the threads match.
I appreciate your feedback.

Its a screw in HSF-.-, see properly. If you dont want to remove the backplate, you can find other brands which uses the same kind of screws. I dont know what size your screw need to be but I will rather change the whole thing. Good luck on your search.

Hi

The cooler (Dynatron P-985) screwed right in and appears to be working fine. Thanks again for your response.
