Answers :

Well if its not attached to the motherboard in any place, for example the heat sync, or the cpu, then you can remove the fan, any other place, you shouldnt replace it because the mother board sets the fan at a certain rpm, and which would sound loud with any fan. I know this because i replaced the fan on my sony computer, and on a generic motherboard, and it was quiet, but when i put it on my sony computer, it was loud, so if you want to replace your fan, i suggest liquid cooling, it is completely quiet, and keeps your cpu much cooler than a fan. Best of luck.
Open up the case (of course). If you can reach the fans with your finger or a soft washcloth, you can touch them in the MIDDLE, not along the blades, and see which ones make noise and which do not.
