Your thermal paste might be dried up, try tapping the heatsink a little or try warming it up alittle. noise July 27, 2012 9:30:08 AM With all the latches and screws undone, try twisting it. If it still isn't coming away, correctly fasten all the screws etc up, run the system for a few minutes to heat up the CPU, then try again. DO NOT run the system with the heat sink partially off unless you really want an excuse to upgrade early. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
