Default Installing a CPU Fan??

Exactly how do you do this. Do you have to take the whole CPU out and then remove the fan and then paste the CPU back, or is it simply taking out some screws??

Any tutorials will help. Thanks

First you have to get the right size heatsink for the intended processor and a nice fan that will fit on it. It mainly screws into the heatsink fins making a snug fit.

If all you plan to do it to replace the fan, I wouldn't even bother taking the CPU out of its socket. Just take the old fan off and screw in the new one. If you plan on removing the heatsink, that's a bit more work.
