Just because im curious, why do you want to replace your CPU cooler with a different one?

exactly as mrluckypants96 says.

you MAY need to take it out anyway though if you cant fit the radiator in there due to the motherboard blocking you... that's dependant also on the motherboard and case you have as some have big heatsinks on them at the upper edge and some do not, just as some cases have more room to wiggle than others. so try to fit the radiator in there without scraping anything, and if it cant be done, then remove the board.
