Changing out stock heatsink on mobo for heatsink with fan

Discussion in 'Asus' started by John Barrington, Oct 11, 2004.

  1. I have an A7N8X, and one of the chips has a heatsink that I would like to
    have a fan help cool it down.

    One thought was to replace the heatsink with one that has a fan included.The
    stock heatsink has no visible attachment point(s), so I'm taking it for
    granted that some sort of epoxy or adhesive tape is holding it in place.

    The other thought was to locate a fan that will easily attach to the
    existing stock heatsink. This would be the more interesting way that I would
    like to go, due to that I have a video card that a heatsink with no fan, but
    I would like to place a fan on it also.

    How can I remove the heatsink?
    Or...
    Are there any heatsink fans that can be easily attach to any odd shaped
    heatsinks?
