There's a second screw on my 3,1 2008 8x2.8: at the very bottom of the fan unit at the corner nearest the heart shield. Easy to remove, difficult to put back, but once it and the black one on the board are out it's super easy. I can see why you have to pull the graphics card to pull the heat shield, but no idea why they have the memory unit loosened. Heat shield is held on by magnets BTW.

Thanks! I did find that...now what I'm struggling with is that it DOES look like my fan cage doesn't pull right out either. I removed the one black screw I could see (top right corner if fans are facing left) is there a second screw?

@Grin - it depends exactly which model you have, but it is usually on the front side of the logic board under the 2nd hard drive bay.

Where is the install for Airport Extreme card? It looked like there was one, but can't find it! Am I missing it?

@ 1' 39" It is most definitely not a TORX 15, not a 20 either, so either a 16, 17, 18 or 19

The fan unit doesn't just pull out - there are two screws holding it in! Also the memory cage is easier to get out if you pull the fan into the cage first
