Vostro 200 ST CPU heatink/fan replacement

Hi,

I have a vostro 200 ST (slim tower) that is quite a few years old and would like to change the cpu heatsink/fan to something that is less noisy. Can anyone clarify what heatsinks/fans will fit without any modifications please. It's a socket 775 motherboard if i recall correctly.

Thanks

Hi Munawar,

I have cleaned the fan/heatsink with compressed air and have removed as much dust as possible, the BIOS is already updated to the latest version.

Can you confirm what replacemet/aftermarket heatsinks/fans will work please. The issue is more to do with the noise produced by the fan, not the temperature itself.

Thanks

Hi pritesh123,

Thank you for your response,

It’s great to know that you’ve updated the BIOS and  also were able to remove the dust and after checking we’ve found a couple of Heatsink / fan’s which are compatible for your computer. Since you’re computer was shipped with Intel Celeron  / Intel Core 2 Duo processor and here are some heatsink / fan’s which will create low noise and provide greater functions. Please click on the link below to check the same, compare and you can install them accordingly.

Hi pritesh123,

Thank you for your response,

As per the Amazon website link that you’ve provided this has a couple of Heat sink / Fan’s which closely match our requirement for your computer.
On the previous post I’d suggested the Akasa Intel Aluminum Fin / Copper Core CPU Cooler which is available on Amazon website that you’ve asked for.
You can get the Akasa AK-CCE-7104EP Heatsink and Fan or Akasa AK-955V2 CPU Cooler - Intel LGA775 and LGA115x from Amazon website.
