Well I do Helpdesk for a living so the last thing I want to do is talk to people who do the same thing I do :lick:

No, you have to remove the old fan which requires you to get to the back of the mobo to remove the plastic clip things. Just use wire cutters to snip them off.

I pinched mine with some small plyers that way I can keep the little clip things intact
