    I have a noisy chipset fan. Is it a fairly easy process to change the fan?
    Will any good 40mm fan do?
    Any input would be helpful.
    Thanks.

    If your talking about the processor fan, take a look around this site for ideas.

    www.3dcool.com

    Look at the fans and any mounting instructions.

    Depends on the cpu and if it's oem or retail fan, what processor have you got.

    Not the processor fan, a small fan below the processor fan (Shuttle AK31 v3.1 mobo) Looks like a small fan you would find on a vid card.

    depends how it's attached, some are basically glued on, and some have two pins on the corners, it's just a matter of pulling the center of the pin up to release it.

    Shouldn't be too much trouble
