How to remove asus DCU II shroud and fan? (not the heatsink)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ive recently been contemplating replacing the fans on my gpu (7850 DCU II) with 2x120mm high performance fans but of course this means i have to remove the shroud and fans from the heatsink.

is there a way i can do this without ruining the card/shroud/fans/warrenty?

I can only provide you a diagram:


There should be some sort of retention clip

or you might need to unscrew from the baseplate

8 screws total.

4x heatsink screws..
4x shroud screws

You'll have to remove the heatsink screws to get to the shroud screws which are on the underside of the heatsink.

You won;t void your warranty unless you lose or break something.
