Zalman CNPS-9900 Max Stuck, I need help! D:

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I recently got nearly my entire rig from a friend, and I thought I would reapply the heatsink cause my temps were crap.

Well, when I went to take it off, after much examination and watching installation videos, I realized I was in some serious trouble:

I didn't have the tool to remove, or install the heatsink...

So. Now my last hope is this community. I'm looking for ANY advice on what I should do to get this thing off and back on, while being able to preserve it for future resale. I've got a small assortment of Allen wrenches, but I can't seem to reach the screws, nor do I know if I have the size I need.

Can anyone give me some advice on what I should do? If you happen to live near Salt Lake City UT, and have this same cooler, please let me barrow your tool >.<<br />
Thanks guys, and let me know! - Jessekin.

Are they phillips or allen screws? You could use a right angle allen wrench or right angle screw driver.

I think they are allen, but they are weird, and don't have a REAL distinct hexagon shape, though I can kind of one. I don't know if they are just worn down, but it doesn't look like they have.
