Installation of A CPU and Heatsink Using a Intel Celeron Processor

Installing A Processor Fan

The installation of a Celeron based fan and heatsink is different then installing a Pentium IV.

The following materials are required for the installation:

The easiest way to install the CPU fan and heatsink is to do so before you insert the processor board into the socket on the motherboard.

2. The first step is to install the fan. Gently position the fan onto the processor and secure it with the four screws provided.
3. The next step in the installation is adding the heatsink.  This particular Celeron CPU comes without mounting hardware for a heatsink and fan, but holes in the circuit board are provide to accommodate the elements.  Gently placed the CPU circuit board into one side of the heatsink, and once they are lined up, do the same for the other side.  Use the screws that came with your heatsink and fan package to secure it to the CPU board.  The installation of the heatsink is now complete.
4. The second-last step in the installation is to insert the CPU into the CPU socket located directly on the motherboard.  This can be a difficult task, because you have to make sure you are properly aligned with the springs at both ends of the CPU. Beware that you must use a reasonable amount of force to snap the CPU into its socket.
5. The final step in the installation is to connect its power cable.  On newer motherboards, there is usually a dedicated power connector located directly on the motherboard itself.  If not, you will have to locate a free power cable and connect it as required.
