No dude it's incredibly easy.
The hardest part is getting all the thermal paste off the core, without spreading it everywhere. To do that, just take a coffee filter (or any lint-free cloth, coffee filters are lint-free) and some rubbing alcohol and wipe it off. Put your new thermal grease on (Arctic Silver-5 is highly recommended over the stock Zalman stuff, I think it cools like 300x (literally) better than the stock Zalman stuff).
Then, you take some studs (included) and screw them into one of the holes on the "arms" on the heatsink, and then drop them through the holes on your videocard, put a little washer thing and a spring there, then put the thumb-screw on the other side and snug them all up.
It takes like five minutes.
Plus it's incredibly quiet, I can't hear mine at all even if I stick my face right up next to it (and that's at 100% fan speed).
Zalman VF900 = awesome.
