Question about Computers & Internet
Are you replacing the system fan, or the CPU heasink fan. The first is simple, the second, is less simple, but not too hard.
Unscrew the screws in the back of your case (most have 4-6) Depending on your case, you may only have to pull the screws on the left side (as you look at the PC). Remove the exterior case.
The system fan will be held in place on the back of your PC by 4 smaller screws. Unscrew em, and disconnect it from the power supply. Install the new fan in the opposite order, and call it a day!
If you're replacing the heatsink fan, you may have to get more detailed instructions on the exact fan/heatsink model. Some are screwed in, some are clipped, ect. Just remember: if you do pull the heatsink fan, DO NOT touch the chip, and before you put a new one back on, DO use thermal grease. Nothing more disappointing that replacing it twice because you forgot this step. Good luck.
