Not sure if this is the right place but I accidentally put my Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120 mm Core-Contact Freezer CPU Cooler on backwards and now I cant get it to unseat any tips help will be appreciated greatly as will expediency
Take the motherboard along with the cooler out of the case. This will provide better viewing of the components in order to determine whether something has jammed or wedged. I don't think it is the thermal compound that is preventing disassembly of the parts.
Once the problem is identified, the solution will come easily.
