To avoid electrocution, shut down the computer. Do not open the computer or attempt to install any items inside it while the computer is on.
To avoid being shocked, wait at least 10 minutes to allow the computer's internal components to cool.
Lift the tab to unlock the side panel.
The panel should fall out. If the panel does not fall out by itself pull a little from the edges.
Pull the fan straight out from its slot. You will need to remove two cables from the motherboard.
It may be easier to reach the cables if you remove the PCI guide (next to the fan unit) first.
