My CPU is stuck on my heatsink I am trying To get it off with some rubbing alcohol so far its not working. Any other suggestions? I used arctic silver 5.
Very gently work the processor back and forth and slowly break it loose from the heatsink. You should have gently rocked the heatsink and broke it loose from the cpu before you yanked the cpu out with it. Apply a VERY thin layer of AS. It just takes a small dot of AS to achieve a VERY thin layer on the top of the cpu. Breaking the HS loose from the cpu should not require much presure if the AS is applied correctly.
