How to fit a jumper cable

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


I have read that fixing a jumper cable toi the fan will trick the HPZ800 that I have a high performance heat sink.

Can anyone explain to me how to do this 

I have installed the Processors that require the High Performance version and keep getting the F1 alert

installing the bypass wire on the 95 watt heatsink when using 130 watt cpu's is not recomended for long term usage, it's only for testing if you try using this for normal usage the fans will run at high speed and the cpu's will possibly throttle down in speed


the low power heatsinks are rated for 95 watt


the high performance heatsink is rated for 130 watts and has a jumper wire between pins 1 and 5
