Note - This component must be serviced by an Oracle-qualified service technician.
To replace a processor heat sink assembly on the Netra Blade X3-2B motherboard.
Before You Begin
To measure 0.1 ml of thermal grease, use the graduated scale on the thermal grease syringe.
Note - Do not distribute the grease; the pressure of the heatsink will do so for you when you install it.
Ensure that the heat sink is oriented correctly. Orient the heatsink so that the screws line up with the mounting studs. The processor heatsink is not symmetrical.
Caution - When handling the heat sink, be careful not to get the thermal compound grease on your fingers so as not to transfer the grease to other server components.
Caution - Avoid moving the heat sink after it has contacted the top of the processor. Too much movement could disturb the layer of thermal compound, causing voids, and leading to ineffective heat dissipation and component damage.
Use a No. 2 Phillips screwdriver to alternately tighten each screw clockwise, 180 degrees, one at a time, until tight.
