Heat sink and fan, help

I bought a intel heatsink and fan, E30307-001

when I plug in and started the pc the fan spins but when it gets to windows it stops and then pc shuts down,

is there a driver I had to install first if yes, I don't have the cd so where can I download it


thanks

  1. There's no drivers for heatsinks and fans.
    Did you apply thermal paste ?
  2. on the cpu there is thermal paste but on the heat sink there is this paste that look like it

    Did you get ahead of yourself and hit submit before finishing what you were trying to get across ?

    Did you clean any old paste off the cpu before instaling the new HS&F ?
  4. no I didn't clean the old paste on the cpu
  5. If I were you, I'd get a tube of thermal paste, clean the old paste off and reinstall the HSF before trying to power up again.
  6. would it cause problems if I don't clean it off
  7. It's possible, too much thermal paste isn't a good thing.
  8. use a lint-free cloth and dab a but of 100% rubbing alcohol on it, make sure nothing cuts you like the stock hsf, cause then you're in for a world of pain depending on how bad you cut yourself
