|By plenty i mean't that there was enough to do the job & not to much paste between the CPU & heatsink.|
The only reason i plugged the other fan in was because i thought the fan might have been the problem.
Yeah i let run a minute or two without the fan, so what ! I found out it wasn't the fan because the otherone did the same thing.
The power supply isn't a Bestec, it's a CodeGen 350W I don't know if thats any better or not !
Why shouldn't I put another fan in?
It's pretty hard to check the board when it's installed and only takes a few minutes to take it out. So I took it out, big deal !
You don't seem to me like your to smart yourself, you never did say why you thought the fan fried. That was one of my questions.
Maybe someone thats more intelligent than you will have some better input for me, because as far as i'm concerned you didn't tell me anything that I didn't already know, except that they used cheap power supplies that seem to be one of their problems.
