I own a BFG FX5900NU and would like to remove the heatsink so I can use either the Zalman or Thermaltake heatpipe coolers. When I went to remove the stock heatsink I removed those little push pins and the heatsink would not come off. I believe there is some kind of thermal tape holding it on. How in the heck can I get that thing off of there??? There is no room to get a razor blade under there. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Hey! Thanks P111 Man! The hair dryer worked marvelously! It only took about 1 minute under low heat. I can not thank you enough. I now have a 5900nu flashed to 5950ultra with a TT heatpipe cooler with a Vantec Spectrum card fan right below that. Idle temps are 34 degrees and load is 60 degrees C. Take care.
