Usually, the CPU fan comes complete with the heatsink. There should be a clip holding the heatsink assembly onto the CPU - you'll need to unclip this and remove the whole thing, clean the old heat compound off the top of the chip, re-apply new heat compound to the CPU and then simply clip in the new heatsink assembly.

You do need to be careful though. The clips can be a real b**tard to attach/remove, and it is possible to crack your CPU in the process (I'm talking from painful and expensive experience here)...

If its just the fan you need because the bearings are fried or whatever, then you need to ensure that you get one of the same form factor as the old one so the screws will fit the same area on the heatsink - and be careful when you screw the new one in - the aluminium of the heatsink is easy to strip if you overtighten the screws - do that, and your new fan is never going to fit properly... :)

Haha !! you have just put me right off ! lol :p

think ill just leave it, i was talkin to a guy that fixes pc's and he was saying it wont do the pc any harm if the cpu fan take a few seconds to start, aslong as its runing fine once u get into windows when your cpu is in use alot :p

i mean it's wierd it is running great once it gets going, its only those few second at the start when it displays ur bios :p maybe its just taking the power a few seconds to reach the fan, who knows :p the guy also said that if it stops while windows is running, then it will notify you and tell you to shut yoour pc down, so at least i will know when it goes dead :p

Looking very cool although very polygon heavy! I love the character design plus the fact that you've stuck him in a scene too - too many character models out there without scenes!
