  1. I've got this CPU cooler long ago, and I've added an extra fan.
    Now it's time to clean that, but I'm not sure how to remove the fans (kinda tricky).

    Is there a video of installing/removing another fan?
    I couldn't find any :(

    You can always refer to the installation manual...
    Or just repeat the installation process in reverse order.

    Don't have it sadly.
    I don't remember how I did it :S

    Get it from the manufacturer's website. :)
    Or hit Google.

    I tried everything.
    That's why I'm asking here duh.

    It is logically not possible that the manufacturer's website does not have a PDF download for the manual. I don't know what the actual structure of the cooler is, so I don't want to speculate anything on my own.

    The fan is held on with rubber fan posts that stick out of the top and bottom of the heat sink. To remove the fan all you should need do is grab the top of the post and pull it away from the heatsink. You may have to remove the heat sink from the motherboard to have easy access to all the posts.

    I'm not sure how though, I'm gonna try.
    The rubber fan posts are weird!
