Hi there
I need to remove my card so i can get to the small fan on it, It looks and sounds like it needs attention.
Can I simply unclip it and remove it or is there more to it than that?
Thanks for any advice :thumbsup:

Yes, basically. Remove the screw attaching it to the frame. Depending on the slot, you might have a release clamp at the end of the slot. Unplug the card fan if applicable and remove it. This is done with the computer unplugged, of course

Also, remember to ground yourself to the case, to prevent a static discharge from damaging your components.

Thanks for your advice
The fan is now clean and silent once again, Thanks to some very gentle brushing and 1 drop of WD 40. I never new there was a fan there until it started making a noise, 4 years of dust really built up on it. :thumbsup:
