To put a new fan in? Just a case of taking the old one off, and putting the new one on(unscrewing then screwing back on and depending on the fan size). Try not to move the heatsink as it is best to try and keep the seal between the CPU and the thermal paste.

Well, the name should of give that away to me. I'm silly Anywho...

Just unscrew the metal bit thats on the fan which will also unscrew the fan, now depending on your headsink you should be able to jus pop it off with a lever of some sort which clips it to the motherboard, when thats off, there should be another lever to enable you to pull the proccesor out, just pull that up and take it out, to put the new one in just do that in reverse order only make sure you apply thermal paste to the CPU before you put the heatsink back on. Hope it helps any

Well, I'll have to tell you one thing about them: Whatch for PPGA and PPGA2.

That means, that if you dd in a Celeron 1.0GHZ or PIII 933MHZ or anything with Tualatin, it won't work. The PPGA2 is one pin different.

You could insert any PIII 550-850MHZ with a 100MHZ FSB. No 133FSB.

You should buy a Pentium III 500-850MHZ. Any CPU with a 0 at the end (ex: 500, 550, 600, 650, 700, 750, etc...)

The PPGA2 is a newer Socket 370. don't bother with that.

The CPUs I've mentioned is 100MHZ. Just watch for the newer Celerons though. Those are PGA2, which don't fit.


The one you selected won't work, unless you get this:

With this b!tch, you can get a Celeron 1.4GHZ!
