Maintain Computer Motherboard

Computer Motherboard

The motherboard (MOBO) of computer is the foundation of the variety of chips to perform some lots of function of the computer. And one of the microchips is the Microprocessor Chips that mounted in the processor socket built in the MOBO. The motherboard is house inside the system case, that this system case simultaneously building dust inside. And one of the hardware where the dust buildup gather is the motherboard and together the processor mounting airblock or simply called processor cooler that cannot rotate exactly because of the dust buildup block on it. And this will cause to overheated the heatsink assembly then the thermal paste will dried up that will cause to not hold the processor and the heatsink assembly of the cooling fan or the airblock. This will cause of the malfunction of the computer because of the overheat. And the very will know symptom and error is the reset mode error in a moment of time. That sometime will cause to blue screen of death (BSOD) of computer that will damage the hard disk if the error not solve immediately.

So the purpose of this post is to let you learn how to maintain your motherboard and how to clean and maintain the processor mounted in the motherboard. Just follow the instructions below of this post. (See the post image above)


1. Disassemble your computer system unit (CPU)
2. Remove the MOBO be assure of the correct orientation of the connections before to remove. Such as the front panel connections
3. Perform brushing to remove the dust buildup, be sure to clean the PCI slots and Memory slots
4. Remove the processor heat sink and airblock
Remove CPU Chip Air Block
5. Brush the dust build up surrounded in the processor socket area. Note: Do not remove the processor to avoid to brush the pin of the sockets, it will cause damage to the pin that cannot be return to normal position.
6. Clean and remove the old thermal paste used above the processor chip using a 70% Alcohol, wipe it surely.
Clean Processor 7. Remove the processor in the socket. Note: Be sure of the correct orientation of the processor mounted in the socket and check whether the pin have no dust or any broken pin.

8. Then clean the airblock
Clean Airblock 9. Brust the airblock if necessary to remove dust of it.
10. Then assemble the airblock to the processor socket, be sure to put a peanut size of thermal paste in the processor and airblock heatsink. Before to mount it in the motherboard socket.

11. It’s done, assemble the motherboard in the system case after, be sure to mount the memory in the memory slot. And be sure to lock the lever in both end of the slots.


  • Be sure to away the wiring in the moving parts inside the system unit.
  • Be sure to perform the safety precautions in assembling the computer system unit.
  • Be aware of the weak capacitors of the MOBO, it will cause serious failures of the the computer once it turn on.
  • Be sure to insert properly the RAM in DIMM slot, if you failed this you will cause serious damage of your computer.
  • Once you check first the display of your computer, do not connect first your HDD, if you failed this will cause serious damage of the operating system.
  • Once you check your HDD, check it in the BIOS system first.
  • If you have problem of your BIOS/CMOS of your PC or laptop motherboard, you can use this site for further information how to reset BIOS firmware.
