How do I prevent my Ryzen 5 3600 from being pull out of the socket by the stock cooler

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've tried one time to replace my stock cooler with a BeQuiet Pure Rock (in a mATX case)

 

When i've first tried to remove the stock cooler, the CPU went off the socket and a pin was bent.

 

I've "repaired" the pin, the CPU works perfectly with the stock cooler, (max 4.06 ghz). Now i'm asking for some tips, to prevent this kind of case, where the CPU gets out of the socket with the cooler, now i'm like "afraid" of touching my CPU... 

 

 

Thanks guys!

turn the system on and run aida64, and then once it gets hot shut it down. then the paste will be less sticky.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

wait, The socket should hold your ryzen in place. Does it not do that? Bit confused on what you mean. 

The locker was down, and the when the ryzen went off the locker was still down...

Warm up the thermal paste and pull it off

 

Or do the ol' twist and turn. Never pull straight up if it seems stuck

Oh I see, thanks

You could run a fine wire between the CPU and cooler (wire like floss) to kinda separate the two.

It's weird I took out 2 Ryzen coolers recently,  both using stock thermal paste,  and was no issue whatsoever.

PC was fully cooled down too - I removed the mobo from the case before doing that though,  maybe that's why. 

 

 

I don't even remember how I removed the coolers,  I just know I had zero problems.  :o

I hope AMD will change to a better designed socket for AM5.

I don't,  it's so easy to use! 

 

Actually that's the main reason I didn't go Intel,  the way their coolers are installed...  It's just not something I'd be comfortable doing - from the looks of it!  

PS: I'm aware the way how aftermarket coolers* are installed on AM4 isn't ideal either,  which is why I use the very good stock cooler.  :)  Sooo easy to install! 

 

 

*actually,  why aren't they installed like the stock coolers with 4 screws?  They should be imo,  that clamp design doesn't make any sense and the plastic looks flimsy...

Twist and turn is what people had to do in the old days when Intel still had pins on their CPU's.  Especially with thermal pastes back then that would turn into some sort of grippy epoxy like substance when they dried out.  

Someone also said don't use the AMD stock thermal paste because it sucks like that.  Remove it and use Kryonaut or MX-4 (or use a Panasonic Soft PGS+ Graphite pad if absolute lowest temps aren't a priority)

Already said it but I had my 2200G installed with stock paste for about a year and removed it recently... It didn't stuck at all, it was still kinda fluid and soft...  I'm just wondering how come it apparently gets sticky sometimes? 

 

Could it be simply surface tension?

So when i twist & turn the cooler, there's no way my CPU will have bent pins or even get out of the socket ?

Heat up the CPU first.  Like, run a prime95 stress test.

Then power off and twist and turn.

As long as your thermal compound isn't epoxy, the heatsink will come off.

 

By twisting and turning, you're using the retention mechanism and distributing the force around the entire CPU laterally rather than having all the force going straight up like a "suction cup".  Think of it like that.  How do you remove a suction cup?

unlikely, unless you use excessive force twisting it.
