The orangy thing if it is a square like below, is a thermal heat transfer pad (sil-pad), used in many applications instead of paste. It also can be gray colored and is a silicone thermal heat transfer material. It is preapplied for easy, goof-proof assembly. All of the boxed i5, i7 and Xeon processors I've used in the past 4 years use this instead of ...
Intel site says thermal solutions for Boxed Intel® Desktop Processors ship with the TIM already applied to the bottom of the fan-heatsink in a 3-bar application. However for the lack of information in your question I would suggest you to refer to Intel Processor Installation Center
Easiest way to check this is to download and install a program called Speccy: https://www.piriform.com/speccy/download This program will list your hardware and the temperature for those it can read.
You could do a stress test. Heat up the room, and then fire up some intensive program for all those desktops. Monitor room and computer temperatures. If they really heat up, you'll smell it! ;-) These computers should have several temperature sensors in them. Monitor those, and if they go up to 40C, send out an email. If they go over 50C, kill or restart ...
This all depends on a lot of factors you did not mention. How are the cases cooled. What is the room temp. Is the hot air getting away properly? It should not be a problem is the airflow out of the cases is ok and if the air on the intakes is not the same hot air that is blown out at the exit fans. Make sure the hot air gets to leave the room somehow. Or ...
In theory, your hard drives (the most likely things to break) should be oriented with the wide area facing up/downwards relative to the floor and ceiling of the room, to maximize heat dissipation. Otherwise there should be no issues with stacking the cases.
Two things: 1- replace the fan and see if that works. 2- as an extra measure, or in case step one fails, install dynamat or another sound deadener on the inside of the PC case where the fan is attached to. The reason for doing this is based on the idea of natural frequencies. It could be the fan oscillates at the perfect frequency which causes the PC side ...
if you can see at the bottom of the motor , you'll see the rotor shaft. around that shaft there's a ring maybe of plastic , rubber or a metal . By removing that ring you can remove the whole fan from the stator part of motor. This is because of a sleeve ring cut at rotor's shaft towards inside to lock it with the stator .
DISCLAIMER: This might trash your laptop! I've had similar issues on my Acer V3-571G with insyde. There are multiple options: - Try to get a hacked "unlocked" BIOS. It might show up some options then. - Try this program, originally written for one specific Acer model but seemingly rather general. I guess that, if the embedded controller is the same or ...
You acutally would be surprised. In a pinch, yes, it is OK but a pinch is basically 12 hours. If you want some other common goods, try this: http://forums.overclockersclub.com/topic/164465-you-got-your-peanutbutter-on-my-cpu-you-got-your-cpu-in-my-peanut/ ...
I had the same problem with the same model (R509). Eventually, I brought it to a repair shop of a guy who used to work for Dell. The guy found that the heat dispersion/transfer was poor, due to poor material contact. He re-installed the processor, using a different/more/new thermal paste. And he may have done something else as well, I'm not 100% sure of ...
