Lol @ some of the replies.
I would get a new cooler.
FYI, q6600 doesn't have CPU pins. The pins are in the mobo socket.

I already bought one on eBay... i am waiting for it! xD
Do you think i need to apply new thermal compound or the one that already comes with the heatsink is enough?!

(i bought AGAIN one with 4 push pins,people would think "this dude is stupid or just love his money as Scrooge Macduck!") xD

I would definitely apply new thermal compound after completely removing the old stuff with alcohol.

Yes, the heatsink mounting mechanism is ridiculous, but you have to deal with it.

I'd advise you to remove the motherboard from the case if possible, so you can get better leverage when mounting the heatsink.

Look very closely at all 4 corners of the mount. Look at the motherboard from the bottom side to be sure that all 4 pins have protruded through the motherboard properly and by the same amount.

The pins should "click" into place, but you can't really rely on that. Do a visual inspection.

About alcohol... people usually recommend Isopropyl n Rubbing alcohol but... if i get the cpu well clean n dry can i use regular alcohol "that one that have more water percentage on it"... ?!

Sure.

Some people use vodka.

I wouldn't worry about cleaning it at a microscopic level.

Just get the old stuff off with alcohol of some type. I would not obsess about the minute details.

You might go to arcticsilver.com and look at their recommendation for applying paste to that particular CPU.

In some cases, a single BB sized drop is preferred. In other cases, a spaghetti-thin strip is preferred.

You don't have to spread the paste across the surface. Let the pressure of the mounting mechanism and heat do that for you.

The tendency is to use too much paste. When in doubt, resist the impulse to apply more. "More" isn't "better".

It shouldn't be hard to get high purity isopropyl alchol (99+%) from say a Chemist/pharmacist/drug store. I got mine from an electronics supply store. The Artic Silver people sell similar stuff but it probably costs a lot more. I believe low purity may leave a residue and you don't want that after the effort.
Remember the paper coffee filter!

You can Laugh all you want he really didn't clarify it well
and FTR a majority of people here thought it was a cpu pin as well it would have been even better if he posted a screen shot


So you can thank the Op for the way he phrased it

Big deal guys. We know the CPU has stud pressure connectors but it could have been a motherboard socket connection the OP was referring to I suppose. I think he has been given correct guidance and he/she needs to get on with it.

I hope I didn't offend any of you guys. I knew what the op meant when he said he broke the pin, since I have almost broken them as well when re-installing the stock style coolers.

Want to hear one way to remove Artic Silver MX-4 or AS-5? Try a Bounty paper towel! That was after 2yrs. of use for the 2010 application of AS-5 surprisingly.

Lately when wanting to use the first hsf bought but unable to use due to the memory being 1/4" higher and pressing up against the first sink I was seeing 46-48C for an idle temp! Wait a minute when first installed back in 2010 it was seeing 35C for an idle. Sure enough the dust screens despite being totally clean dust free were still hampering the air flow!

The end result of seeing a 1-3C difference between the two pastes and the much lower cpu temps when increasing the air flow into the case! The Phenom II X4 975 now idles at 35C again with a load temp of 37C.

It goes to show the paste and of course just how much paste is applied will make a difference while getting that cooler air in will be the larger factor in keeping temps down.

Very high CPU usage, causing very high laptop CPU temps (90c idle)
This problem began yesterday. I noticed my CPU was at 90C constantly with very high CPU usage (>50%). I had no major programs running. I rebooted several times and the program persisted. 1. I went into safe mode and everything was normal. So this rules out hardware issues. 2. I reformatted and...
