Windows 7: New replacement computer fan reads 0rpm

How would I put those in?? My CPU heatsink doesnt have screws or a mount... It just snaps in with plastic one-way push pins... Also seems glued with some kind of thermal glue compound... doesn't seem like it wants to budge.

like this kind of heatsink http://www.allitwares.com/userupload..._77773_749.jpg

That is for a normal socket design, there's only has the two holes for that thermal pad(most likely) heatsink as it is a BGA socket. I agree though those temps are very low already, your cpu does not even throttle till 105c I would just be happy with what you got and honestly can probably run your fan on lowest setting. If at load it gets even 65c your fine.

105*C?? That's hotter than boiling water geeze! I don't think it'd reach that even without a fan even. (Probably as long as the room is cool)

So there isn't really a need for any new heatsinks or anything? I just got a new fan because I wanted to treat my computer nice and not risk burning it out with no fan.. since with the fan off it heats up to 50*C+ fast

I would keep a fan on it yes, if your loading at like 60c your fine same if your idling in the 40's. Those are relatively low watt cpus so can take some heat.

I have idle at 31-39*C and max load is 41-45*C (max GPU and CPU load with prime95 and GPU-Z render test window running after 2 hours)

CPU and GPU are on same chip.

Yeah if your loading at 41c with prime then your fine and it's a super low watt chip then.

i read in hwmonitor it says 3-5W package or something when its 100% loaded. and drops down to almost 0.1 when idle!

if i change the fan speed slow enough I can run it at about 600-800RPM
it still cools the CPU enough to keep it below 50*C on load. and completely 100% silent unless i put my ear up to the case.

though I still can't change the fan speed fast as i'd like.. It ramps up or down too slowly unless changing directly between the different fan controlling modes like softwaremode smart. and off/on.

Found a great way to mount the fan using 4 short pieces of cord from a usb cord that fits just perfectly the right size for each fan screw hole. and fits perfectly into the heatsink.. also makes less noise and cools a bit better now as well. Had to press it on and feed the wires in between the heatsink fins but it fits perfectly and snugly. and perfect size for each one too. about an inch long a piece. wouldn't even know the fan isnt screwed in.

Heres a photo of the fan.
