What should I do? Help with my GTX 580!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I bought the Accelero Extreme Plus cooler for my GTX 580 bc temps were kinda high. Well when I went to take off the stock cooler, 2 of the screws were stripped and can't be removed! I didn't strip them. I can't stress that enough since I know that everyone is going to think that I did lol. But I didn't. I removed 12 screws no problem, but the last 2 are stripped. If anyone knows a great method to get out a stripped screw I'd love to hear it! If not, what should I do? I bought this GPU thinking that I would be able to add a cooler!

If you're careful enough, you can drill the screws - otherwise reattach the cooler and live with the stock cooler

Go to the hardware store and buy an screw extractor. Its fluted left handed so the harder you crank on it the deeper it drives into the screw. No screw, screws with me...

If the screw's stripped, can't you just carefully pull it out?
