Question How do I install video car fan?

I already looked on google and found nothing. I'm going to get a fan for my card, but need to know how to install it. My ATI Radeon 9550 didn't come with one on it so i can't jsut replace the old one.

That cooling blook is secured in the same way as a fan. there are two plastic pins that go though the video card circuit board that have pop out tabs on them. you squeeze those tabs together with a pair of needle nose plyers and then gently push them back through the holes. Once out, clean the gpu thermal paste off in preparation for the fan installation. New thermal paste on the GPU and install the new fan. That simple!!!
