i moved my 2.9ghz pentium 4 in to a pc that was running on a celeron 2.0ghz. i moved it with the heatsink and fan that came with it in the original pc.

It is very noisy. before i installed it i gave it a clean and hovered all the dust of the sink and fan. i remember when i used to burn movies to a dvd, my pc had to convert the avi to dvd format and the fan wud go nuts, very noisy but it is like this all the time now with the occasional quiet spell.

Have i messed up or is it just being a bit temperamental cos i disturbed it. any advice wud be great.

Thermal Interface Material Replacement for Fan Heatsink
Thermal interface material is required for proper heat transfer from the processor to the fan heatsink. The boxed Intel Pentium 4 processor will have thermal interface material attached to the bottom of the heatsink or will be supplied with thermal interface material included in an applicator.

* Thermal Interface Material Attached to the Heatsink
Intel does not recommend the removal of the thermal interface material located on the bottom of the boxed processor fan heatsink. Removal of this material may cause damage to the processor and will void the boxed processor warranty. If you must remove and re-use the fan heatsink, it will require replacement. Also, if the thermal interface material is at all damaged, you must replace the thermal interface material or the fan heatsink. Contact Intel Customer Support for assistance.
* Thermal Interface Material in an Applicator
Using the boxed processor without properly applying the included thermal interface material may cause damage to the processor and will void the boxed processor warranty. If you must remove and re-use the fan heatsink, a new application of thermal interface material is required. Contact Intel Customer Support to receive additional thermal interface material in an applicator.
