Depends on the manufacturer. EVGA, XFX, and a few other companies let you use aftermarket solutions as long you can put it back together (if you ever need to do an RMA).

Just keep all the parts and screws and you're fine. Even if the company doesn't allow you to modify it.

I can back this up; just tried to take apart my XFX GTX 275. Doesn't work...

You took off the 2 screws on the side right?

The 275 definitely comes apart. You either missed two screws, or have some very tacky thermal paste.

I have a 4890 with the fan in the middle

Anyone know if it's possible to pull the stock fan off without breaking it?

It's so loud...I want to zip tie a 120mm fan on.

But I also want to be able to put the stock fan back on later in case I need to RMA it.
