What kind of computer fan? CPU fan? GPU fan? Case fans? Since you're talking about clip on the motherboard, I'm assuming it's the heatsink/fan for the CPU?

Here's what I would do. I would see what kind of CPU I have and look for a new aftermarket cooler for it. You will need to take the old heatsink with the fan on it, off of the CPU. You may have to clean the surface of the CPU if it has leftover thermal compound on there. If there is none on there, then don't worry about it. CPU don't really need thermal compound to work. I recently opened up a heatsink at work and to my surprise, no thermal layer. Wow, blew me away.

You don't have to remove the motherboard. Too much work. Just tilt the PC on it's side and work with it from there. You can remove the RAM if you want for more room.

No they dont make much noise, way quiter than fans...I noticed that the water cooling you picked doesnt have a gpu block you should def get a gpu block if your going to water cool your system. Since the cpu and gpu are the main things that are giving off heat..Overall yeah i dont see anything wrong with that water cooling system

You mean you have an Athlon64 3000+ CPU? That motherboard is pretty nice. I would never recommend water cooling, unless you're the type of person that want to overclock your CPU and GPU like mad and know what you are doing. Traditional air cooling is fine for most of us here. This seems to be the best:
