    Installing A Socket A Fan/Heatsink
    Author: JonnyGURU
    Date Posted: August 2000 Updated: September 21st, 2001

    This one (called the DUO462) has a SQUARE BASE instead of a round one so now the rubber pads on the top of the CPU come in contact with something more than air. Also, they took the two little chrome tabs off of either side of the clip (seen best in the next two photos) so this version of the Orb can be used on the Biostar motherboards. That's good. I never knew what those tabs were there for in the first place and often broke them off.

    After you have the heatsink flush AND ARE HOLDING IT FLUSH you can work on the other side of the clip by pushing it down onto the socket. DO NOT MOVE THE HEATSINK.

    Also, keep in mind the SURFACE MOUNTED CAPACITORS AND RESISTORS ON THE MOTHERBOARD. The clips of the heatsink can easily SCRAPE these off rendering the board USELESS and possibly frying the CPU too!
