Disassembling a Geforce 3 vid card fan?
does anyone know a specific site that shows the disassembly of a geforce 3 vid card fan? the screws popped out.. but it seems like its glued on tight. wondering how to get past that
Screws? You mean plastic clips, right?
OK there were basically 2 ways to attach them, with clips or with no hardware. And no hardware attachment means they had to use glue.
Now, since you actually had hardware attaching it, I have to assume it's simply stuck there now with Thermal Interface Material. This stuff is usually a type of putty, it's sticky and softens when warm. You can usually get it off the chip by applying a small amount of lifting force to break it free.
