Introduction

It seems hard to get the fans out in the real world, so I would like to explain

  1. You want to pull off the grey fan-assembly on the left (already gone in the pic), for that you have to unscrew 4 Screws in the memory-compartment on the right, slide that to the right and take out the middle cover for the processors

    Need to see all the steps from start to finish. It doesn't show where all the screws are and how to remove them.

  3. The problem often is, that the slide-holder of the fan-assembly is quite stuck in the black plastic on the bottom of the case; it helps a lot to use a flat metal stick to push it up and out

    • The card-retaining blade that has two hand-driven screwheads is quite ideal for this purpose
