Easy as pie like brutal said, if you got a standard psu. If not it can still be done, just a tad harder.

I had a friend that did not want to buy a new system (cost reasons) and his e-machine psu fan died. Took some works but I got a new one mounted.

antacus, i always assume someone has a enlight or inwin or some other non generic case that the psu has 80mm fans and psu can be removed with 4 screws :)

yup yup yup. Was not ment to double guess ya there :)

Just stating, backhandedly, that if you go out the norm and buy a trash PC then fixing it is possible but not as easy. I hate e-machines :D

I replaced one not to long ago and was super easy. The PS was 2 pecies and just pulled it appart, unplugged the fan and put a new one in. Actually I think we just sprayed the old one with WD-40 and put that back in. :D

Works fine now...

It is simple.

I actually took it to another level.  

I Dremeled out the bottom of my PSU to add another "sucking" 92mm fan on the bottom.  Then I added a high CFM 80mm in the back (92mm wouldn't fit, I tried... :(  )

I soldered both fans to the PCB (printed circuit board), and they work fine, and helped me drop 1-2 degrees just by adding the bottom "sucking" fan.
