No problem that I can think of. I switched my stock q6600 fan to the Tuniq a few weeks ago. Works like a charm. Just remove the old paste and put on the new.

yep...should be really easy. Just make sure your thermal paste doesnt pull your processor off in the process....(not like i havent done that)

If you havent bought the tuniq yet, look at the thermalright ultra 120, its a lot easier to mount and cools better than the tuniq. You'll be cursing the thumbscrews on the tuniq.
