I have a mate whoes computer has had a bit fall off.
I don't have it in front of me to take a photo or give you a m/board part #.
It is a heatsink, but not the one off the processor.
I am actually quite embarresed that I don't know what the part is, as I have worked with computers for quite some time, but I don't like to get my hands dirty too much.....
If you look at the m/board pic at:
and look at the lower pic (labelled socket 370 in the picture)
it is in the same location as the gold heatsink on that M/board, just to the left of the processor socket, square in the middle of the four circles that show the labels.
What is the heatsink on, what effect is it falling off going to have on the computer?
Appreciate any help on this.
