Re: Took apart H2C cooling system and found a problem
A little late but I still hope you exist. I am also attempting to re-build my H2C unit. Dell quoted my over $1K for a replacement . Kind of explains why they are not doing so good as of late.
I've started to follow your repair instructions and have a question. In step 4, "remove the CPU.." you mention prying out the "plastic insert". Would that be the one on the bottom (inside) copper cover plate? I can't tell if it is plastic or not. When I remover the copper top there was some sort of material in there, either dissolved plastic or crud.
Any other helpful tips would be appreciated. $5K for the PC to last 3.5 years and no parts.....unbelievable. Dell has lost a loyal customer who purchases for a large gov. department.
