In Chapter 6, "Installing an Additional Processor," replace the section "Installing a Heatsink" in
the User Guide with the following section:
Installing a Heatsink
Once the processor is installed, the heatsink must be installed on top of the processor. A thermal patch on the bottom
of the heatsink provides thermal bonding between the heatsink and the processor. The thermal patch must be replaced
if the heatsink is removed (even temporarily) from the processor. You will find extra thermal patches taped to the PCI
card cage inside the server.
1. Remove the heatsink from the shipping container. Do not touch the thermal patch on the bottom of the
2. Inspect the thermal patch. Replace the patch if it is damaged as follows:
a. Make sure you are grounded with a static-dissipating wrist strap.
b. Remove the damaged patch. If you are reinstalling a heatsink on a processor, also scrape off any thermal
material remaining on top of the processor chip. You may use your fingernail to scrape the material off.
c. To install a new thermal patch, peel off the backing, and place the patch in the area marked at the center of
3. Install the heatsink:

b. Hold the heatsink steady with one hand and press the hook latch down to connect it to the tab. Then insert a
flat-head screwdriver into the tool latch and press down to connect the latch to the tab. See Figure 6-6

Heatsinks are not reusable unless the thermal patch is replaced each time the heat sink is
removed, even if it is temporarily removed and reinstalled on the same processor.
Ensure the heatsink is seated properly on the processor. If the heatsink is offset even slightly,
there will be insufficient thermal contact with the processor, which may result in overheating,
data corruption, and permanent damage to the processor.
