I recently purchased a Corsair H60 and am currently trying to install it and seem to have run into a problem..
The motherboard i'm installing it on is a HP motherboard that came with my prebuilt PC (hp m9510f, the motherboard and CPU are the only things that I haven't switched out yet on it)
I'm supposed to install a backplate for the H60, but there seems to already be one there and I'm not sure if im supposed to be able to remove it or what..
or can I not install an aftermarket cpu cooler on this motherboard?
Those are wayyyy too high temps! did you use the thermal paste? Did you get the cooler on nice and tight? Does the radiator have a fan connected? Which way is the fan blowing?
You could use a blow dryer, that generally gets glue off.
I used the thermal pad on the H60 since I heard it was some pretty good stuff, I have some Arctic Silver 5 sitting around though
The cooler does not move at all when I push it, the screws are tightened all the way, and the radiator has the fan blowing into the case.
Fan is plugged into CPU_FAN and pump is Sys_fan
In SpeedFan I get around 1158-1500rpm for Fan1 and around 0-729rpm (sometimes stuck at 0) for Fan 2, is this normal?
Would you recommend me putting the corsair backplate on and applying Artic Silver 5?
Thanks for all the help!
No, i'm pretty sure its a backplate on there, apparently its stuck on with adhesive (from what I read)
EDIT: I finally removed the backplate with a credit card and blow dryer, took me an hour but finally got it off. My H60 pump wasn't getting the power it needed from the mobo and I had to use an molex to 3pin adapter, currently getting 56c (still high) but its better than 78c, thanks everyone
