T430 thinkpad CPU upgrade

Hello Everyone, 

I have recently upgraded my CPU to:  Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3520M CPU @ 2.90GHz 

I have : Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 graphic card 

I also have  a 16 GB of RAM

I am under Windows 10.

 

So my problem is that my heatsink won't stop turning and sometimes it's quite loud, I do record music sometimes nd all this noise doesn't really make things for me in post-production. 

 

 I was wondering if you have any idea to why that is happening, someone told me that I sould change my heat sink, but there is lots of them and I can't find the right one, Should I get me a new one or does an old one wil do too?

 

 I will appreciate any help. 

 

 Thanks in advance.

It could also be that the thermal paste is getting old/dry. Unless the fan is making a weird noise, it could be that once you replace the thermal compound your T430 will be silent again.

 

Replacing the paste will take a good deal of disassembly. It's not so difficult but it will require some patience if you never did that before. Let us now if you're willing to try it yourself, the steps are very well documented by Lenovo.
