I needed to clean my cooling system, but needed to remove the heat sink for efficient cleaning. I timed the process, 65 seconds is all it was off.
Do I really need to reapply thermal compound?
Second question.... So I cant remember what side to have up on the fan. It is a Delta Brushless. Should the arrow on the fan be pointing into the heatsink or away from it? Total airhead move not to remember which way it was.
My System Specs:
Dell Inspiron 530
Quad Core Processor
2 years old
hopefully thats all info needed. Thanks for any help!
