- can NOT see a way to remove heat sink retention screw assembly,
- with out breaking/destroying same.
- screw is below the shaft of retention screw;
- [shaft runs the height/length of heat ink],
- and is non accessible without retention screw removal;
- [non accessible with traditional TORX screwdriver].

Want to remove heatsink from Slot 2 PIII 700/2m
and replace on slot 2 PIII 900/2m's.

Sure someone has resolved this problem.
- HP support has no solution & does NOT recommend remove/replace of heatsinks.
- HP recommends buying compete CPU/heatsink.

Your help is greatly appreciated !!

Upgating from 4X PIII 700/2m to 4X Pii900.2m's
.
- Intel reference is not helpful

- eMailed Foxconn maker of heatsink
. no answer for 1.5 weeks

- HP support says do NOT do.
. buy 900 kit

1. Foxconn
2. HP Support
3. This forum

4. Exhaust this forum
5. Intel
6. OTHER ???

Thank You;

Re: DL580 G1- Remove Heat sink from CPU

Hi,

4X Pii900. you are going to buy from intel and fix this old heat sink then boot up the bx.
Can you share the snap shot of other side procesr like bothside.
Because if you see the processor blank it tells how the heat sink will be attached to the processr.

I am not sure. But if you can share snaps for all sides of processor since i dont have with i can guess, or some else on forum can suggest something.

Re: DL580 G1- Remove Heat sink from CPU

I understand you can see the screw under the retention screw.
can you remove the retention screw by pulling it out till it blocks then keep "unscrewing" till it comes out?

Re: DL580 G1- Remove Heat sink from CPU

HP design the Proliant range to be easy to service and to be supremely reliable. As such some components are not designed to be taken apart. This project of yours is well beyond HP's design goals and as such can not be recommended. If you are to continue with this then you will also need to consider the revision of the processors you are trying to install. The HP branded CPU's are strictly controlled to work reliably. Do you know that your non HP CPU's will work with this server ? What you will gain in performance in completing your project will be negligible considering the trouble you are having trying to achieve it. Perhaps you should spend your money on Taiwanese computer components instead and read the overclockers forums.
