Removing ridiculously tightly screwed on CPU Cooler

Hi Guys,

As the subject says, I have a CoolerMaster V8 I bought about 3 years ago mounted onto an Asus P6t Deluxe V2 in an Antec 1200 case. I don't know how I managed it at the time but the cooler is proving impossible to remove. I badly want to clean the fans, de dust and re apply heat paste as temps have started to creep up, but I just can't get the damn thing off, the screws are too tight :s.

Does anyone have any magic solutions to this issue?

Many thanks for any advice, or even threads of similar worth, I'm afraid I'm brand new here.

  1. According to this tutorial, you need to remove the board and use the 'socket' they provided to loosen the nuts behind the board. No?
