Processor Heat Sink
Only trained service technicians are authorized to remove the system cover
and access any of the components inside the system. See your Product Information
Guide for complete information about safety precautions, working inside the computer,
and protecting against electrostatic discharge.
The processor and heat sink can become extremely hot. Be sure the
processor has had sufficient cooling time to cool before handling.
Do not over-tighten the heat sink retention screws when installing the heat sink.
To prevent over-tightening, Dell recommends that you tighten the retention
screw until resistance is felt and stop once the screw is seated. The screw tension
should be no more than 6 in-lb (6.9 kg-cm).
