Chipset Fan Replacement

Postby Raven70 » Fri May 24, 2002 10:00 am

My Shuttle AK31 V3.1 chipset fan sounds like a Sopwith Camel when my system boots 8O A new Thermaltake Crystal Orb should arrive today :D

Question: Anything in general I should know about replacing this fan before I actually open the case? I haven't opened the case in 4 months for anything. Anything else I need?

Thanks

Don't forget to apply some Arctic Silver III. 8)

I didn't order any. What stores might have it or something else that might be workable? I would like to do this this weekend.

Thanks

In a hurry so stopped by a local shop and they had Antec Thermal Grease. I bought it, so its probably too late to tell me the advantages of Artic Silver :lol:

Antec is ok, but not as good as ASIII. It shoud be just fine for the Crystal Orb. Be sure that you put on just a paper thin layer on the GPU. 8)
