BFG 6600GT fan clips

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I tried to remove the fan on my card and snapped the tip of the clip off that holds it from the bottom, anyone know how to remove these things the right way? I want to put arctic silver on.

Pinch the black clips on the back of the card with some pliers.
Make sure you dont slip and hit some of the tiny capacitors near the mounting hole.

Ok that was the trick, except I kind of flexed the card in order to push the pin through and a little chip snapped off, cards pouched, well atleast its the one im sending backto BFG cause it was screwed anyways... I'm scared when they send me my new one to take off the heatsink to apply AS5, is it worth it!!!!!????
