Default Let me clear up that statement...

Labour only. If you bring in one you want mounted then it's just labour. If you just want to have the current one remounted then labour only.
If you want me to buy it then reach real deep in your pockets, cause I don't use no junk...

Default Um...

The fins are a little on the thin side but if it's really solid copper then that will make up for it. $29.00 with a 60mm fan is a good price.
But again if you have the slightest doubt about how to do it, Please take it to a shop and let a tech do it. Too much paste is as bad as not enough.
