I am having a hell of a time trying to reinsert the stock intel heatsink back onto the motherboard..

I have an i7 920.. Here's the heatsink:

I had to remove it to swap motherboards. Removing it was simple, putting it back on seems damn near impossible.

No matter what I do, I can't push the plastic pieces back into the holes in the mobo.

Am I doing it wrong, or is it not supposed to be reused?
