I don't think you can i have one and the fan is mounted on rubber brackets to keep it silent i think it will be very dificult.

Maybe with a little modifacation. sometimes you have to make your own mounts, I do on about everything I get.

you cant just replace it, but im sure if you wanted or needed to it is possible. the fan it comes with should be good enough. if you want more cooling you would probably want a high cfm fan on a big typhoon instead. the a64 is still plenty good for even a decent oc.

Mount it so it blows air to the back of your case, and have a 120mm fan there for exhaust. Mine works well even without the supplied fan!

he means mount the heatsink with the supplied fan so it blows air into a 120mm exhaust. that is what i have done also. good choice on the freezer 64, mine dropped temps significantly and it was pretty cheap.

now that i have it up and running, it is very quiet and has lowered temps by only 4 celsius under load and none while idling. it is far superior to stock cooling, but it doesnt seem "Amazing!" i am gonna try to repalce the stock fan temporarily to see if there is a temp difference.

ok, replacing the fan with an antec 40 cfm one brought the temps down 2 extra celsius. so i put the stock one back one and put another fan on the other side of it sucking air through it as well as the other bowing and it brought it down 4 celsius. so im sticking with it
