    none really, psu may carry a charge after being turned off, so becarefull, remove all the screws you need to, snip the old wire about 2cm away from base of fan, solder and tape it, replace new fan and bend over pins.

    Working inside a PSU (when disconnected from the mains) can still be dangerous. If you are competent witha soldering iron and feel confortable working with this type of stuff, then it's a 20minute job.
    If not, steer well clear and get someone else to do it for you.

    Otherwise, if you get something wrong, at best you could knacker your PSU, at worse you could hurt yourself....

    I have done it
    I have also removed the pressed steel at the rear of the case and replaced it with a 80mm grill.
    It does seem a little quieter, i just need to change my 9800 fan or make it alot quieter.
