Well.. You plug it into the 4 pin connecter, and stick in an a PCI slot. Not on the mobo. Just on the bak of the case where the removable metal things are. Or you replace the stock case fan. Meaning you take out that one, and stick in the new one. Assuming they are the same size.

i mean those really cheap little ones just too move airflow around (lol shoulda mentioned that)

also is it normal for your fan and heatsink to take up half of the room inside your computer? cause mine is friggin huge

i looked into the pci fans you mentioned.. and this one looks very good

Yeah, that looks like a nice one. Definely go for it.

And its normal for a Dell. Because they put things on it, so its hard as hell to take off. Oh well..

Anyways, thats a nice PCI fan. Go for it if you have the extra cash.
