  1. I cant seem to get the 2 screws under the video card out, it seems to be on there very very tight, any recommendations or another way to get them off? I dont want to break anything.

    have you looked for instructions in the internet? a google search will surely yield useful information. you may not have real 'screws' but rather locking pins that look like them but function differently, which are common these days for VC HSF assemblies.

    lol me and my friend just went at it and like striped the "screw", I'm not sure if it was a locking pin or not, since there were 2 other screws on there (total of 4) that came off fine, anyways, I had a cordless drill and a very tiny bit, needless to say, I drilled the 2 screws to the point where they broke off >_< very carefully, end result, we managed to get the zalman fan in and its working great =D

    A little brute but, it worked xD
