Replacing the heat-sink assembly

  • CAUTION: Incorrect alignment of the heat sink can damage the system board and processor.
  • NOTE: The original thermal grease can be reused if the original system board and fan are reinstalled together. If either the system board or the fan is replaced, use the thermal pad provided in the kit to ensure that thermal conductivity is achieved.
