  4. Carefully lift up the top panel, because there are two blue ribbon cables that must be disconnected before removing the panel, and we do NOT want them to break. After gently disconnecting the two ribbon cables (you can just pull them out with your hand), take the top off and set it to the side.

  6. First we need to unscrew the fan from before we can remove it. Remove both copper colored 10mm screws with a #2 phillips screwdriver. As you remove the second screw, pull the fan inward to remove it from the remainder of the case. It should now only be connected to the case through a cable attached to the circuit board.
