is it hard to change stock hsf to a thermalright slk948u?

I was wondering how easy or hard it is to take the existing hsf off the cpu and put on the new hsf?

I just bought a athlon64 cpu and mobo combo that had the hsf preassembled? I was wonder if it will be hard to replace it with my thermalright slk-948u?

As hard a replacing ay HSF I guess? If the stock backplate doesn't fit (screw holes to small or whatever), just mount the one that came with the SLK?

Backplate on the back of mobo, heatsink on the top, insert screws and tighten. Rinse, spit and you're done :D

It shouldn't be too difficult. Rumour has it the socket775 retention mechanism is pretty nice to work with. Out of curiosity, what are you using / planning to use for a fan on the 948u?
