How to Remove a Deepcool CPU Cooler?

To remove a Deepcool CPU fan you need to first, turn off the system and disconnect the power cable. It is recommended to let your PC run for 5-10 mins to heat up the thermal paste. This will make sure it gets softer and makes removal easier.

Next, remove the side panel of your computer case to access the interior. If you have a desktop computer, there are typically screws on the back of the case that need to be removed in order to take off the side panel. For tower cases, the side panel is usually held on by thumbscrews located at the top or bottom of the case.

Once the side panel is removed, locate the CPU cooler and disconnect the cable from the motherboard. This is usually a four-pin or three-pin connector that goes into either the CPU fan header or a dedicated power connector near the CPU socket.

Finally, push the lever on the right side to loosen the CPU cooler. With a little care and effort, you can easily remove your Deepcool CPU heatsink without damaging any components.

Keep in mind that it may be necessary to remove other components in order to access the CPU cooler. If you're not sure how to proceed, consult the manual for your computer case or contact Deepcool customer support for more assistance.
