    Video card fan

    Hello, I bought a video card fan, that I may have to return. I can't seem to take off the old heat sink and fan.

    The new one is copper and comes as a kit with thermal stuff and all - but does not give instructions to remove the old one.

    Does anyone know any tricks to do so?

    You can also put the v-card in a baggie & throw in the freezer for a couple of hours and it'll pop off using the same procedure as Rev's link.

    You better not break phishhead's v-card

    I pulled the fan off and pulled back the label and put a drop of oil in there and it's working now.
