Default Re: putting in a new CPU fan


Attaching a CPU fan requires at least a couple things: a sense for how much force can be applied; knowing what can and can't be touched on either component surface, awareness of static electricity, and normally a thermal compound.

Unless you have substitute experience and considering the critical nature of cooling (and CPU/mboard cost) I think you should let an experienced friend or the like do it for you. Computer stores will sometimes/often install the fan for you if you're purchasing it and the CPU from them.

After all that, I'll tell you how to do it but you're totally on your own...

Jebus, it's not like it's rocket science!

You can easily attach a new fan, just use a good sense. Touch something grounded first, a radiator, sink, whatever. Open the case, detach the current fan, avoid touching the various other components. Get the new fan, and attach as the manual says. Most fans are attached simply by clipping it on.
