    • Gently slide the plate out from between the back cover and the circuit board. It should come out without much force.

    • If it doesn't want to budge, check that the right screw was removed from the top of the video card.

  3. Using the 1.5mm Hex, remove the 4 screws (one on each corner) to release the shroud Note: there is 4 screws on each corner plate, the other 3 screws do not need to be removed.

    • The Red box is where the connector is located on the circuit board.

    • Use the Tweezers to gently disconnect the connector.

    • Installing the new fan, I found it easier to connect the wiring first, then the fan itself

    • Connect the connector (the keying points away from you)

    • Seat the cable under the metal clip

    • Screw in the 3 screws for the fan

    • Loosely screw in all 3 screw before screwing them down tight.

    • Careful to not damage the fan blade, as that would cause premature wear and excess noise.
