I have a hpe-560t custom high performance pc from ph. I bought a sp 120 pe from corsair. Idk what heatsink it is, only hint is that it is a coolermaster sticker on the fan on top. How would I remove current and replace with this fan? Thanks! Nvm, just cheked website and it looks similar to the http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/product.php?product_id=2994&product_name=DK9-7E52A-0L-GP%20AMD%2065W%20Cooler. I have a phenom x II 1075t if that helps. Thanks!

I dont mean to sound rude, but could you rephraze?

From what i gather. You have: http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/product.php?product_id=2994&product_name=DK9-7E52A-0L-GP%20AMD%2065W%20Cooler

And you wish to replace the fan with an SP 120?

I am sad to inform you that is not possible.

This is due to the fact that the SP 120 is a 120 mm fan, while the fan on a DK9-7E52A-0L-GP is an 80mm. They just are not compatible.

You should get something like: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835119136&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

however i am not sure that particular is compatible because i dont know how the cooler´s fan is mounted.

Ok thanks, and rephrase what? It was worth a shot, I'll just replace the rear exhaust then knowingly that an af would be better.... Thanks bear creep anyways! Ugh autocorrect,,,

And it's the screws in the corners..... Pretty sure. It said 70 by 70 by 15mm. Are you sure it's an 80mm fan?
