The new memory heatsinks that come with the Vantec Iceberq 5 VGA Cooler are similar as the ones already on the video graphic card so they were not replaced. The fan on the Vantec Iceberq 5 VGA Cooler blows air over the memory heatsinks better that the original heatsink / fan keeping the memory chips cooler.

The first task is to remove the graphic card from the PC mainboard.

The original ASUS heatsink / fan is held on to the card by two black press in pegs. To remove the heatsink / fan:

Pull out the red/ black fan power lead plug from the socket on the card.

Turn the card over and using pliers, squeeze the ends of the black pegs together and then push the peg back through the card.
