Switching out Computer Heat Sink with Cooler Master Hyper T2
About a month after setting up this new computer, my processor fan started sounding like a single prop airplane. I couldn’t record any video without that noise getting in the way. I tried several ways to pad, but it just made better sense to get a more powerful heat sink. Which is why I bought the Cooler-Master Hyper T2.
Why didn’t I go liquid cool? I really didn’t want to have that hassle in my computer at this time. Further, if I have to take my machine on travel, this way works a lot better.
Installing the Cooler-Master Hyper T2
The process is pretty simple. This video will explain everything. More than I can. The key takeaways:
- properly ground yourself
- turn on the computer for a few minutes to let the thermal paste warm up
- Generously apply Thermal Paste and make sure it covers the whole area
- Check the case size vs the heat sink. Since this one stands on end, it might protrude out of the case. You need 5.5 inches
