If you have the right fan for the job, its a snip... With a removable card you can get behind the fan and ease out the old plastic clips, even cut them if you have sufficiently fine wirecutters.

I made the fatal mistake with a secondary fan on a mobo. of trying to pull the clips out without removing the motherboard from the case first. Too much force in straight pulling must have done a nasty to the multi-layered board because that never worked again!
