I built my computer about a year ago, and I've finally decided I want to replace my processor fan and heatsink. However, when I attempt to remove the fan pins from the motherboard it seems as if I am pulling too hard. I really don't want to damage the motherboard or processor, but from what I have seen online the stock fan does require some force to remove. If it is only happening to me I think I might not be able to replace the fan, so has anybody else had this problem before?
