Need URGENT help dismounting AIO cooler.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Alright guys my problem is that I need to get this Antec h20 620 off of this AMD socket to install onto an Intel board but when I try and unscrew the mounting screws it simply just turns the mounts the screws are installed in on the other side of the board that go through the backplate, I can't seem to secure the mount whilst unscrewing the cooler. Pics attached. I have spent the past hour trying and nothing, I've even thought of trying to just snap the backplate off or slowly cut it off as I don't need it anymore which would give me access to the mounts.

Bad, bad design mad.gifmad.gif. Not happy and need to get his thing off! Any help appreciated! #

Sorry for the very crappy advise but i underwent the same issue when unmounting my h50,
which was only half of the problem as the other half comes when you have switched it over and need to re-tighten those screws.

My Fix - Crazy glue and baking soda biggrin.gif

Align the screw mounts in place inside the pastic, drop some crazy glue drops in there, then trow a bit of baking soda powder in there as well, (glue first, baking soda afterwards)
Let it dry, then try unscrewing it,... after you're done, re mount the back plate on which ever mobo is going to, and the mounts should remain in place thumb.gif

How about using a tiny pair of needle nose pliers to clip the outside of the bracket, and the inside of the nut? I think that would be easiest method to take, but I'm not sure you will find needle nose pliers that small.

I have some and I have tried and the gap is just too darn small, I can't get a hold of the nut mad.gif

I had this issue with the Water 2.0 I installed in my son's computer. I have a pair of needle nose pliers thin enough to grip the nut.

If using the crazy glue and baking soda trick, I believe the best way is to dust the baking soda on first. Get it in the crevasses that need to be glued. Once the gaps are filled, then the glue will wick in and seal the gaps. Putting the soda on after will not fill the gaps as completely and solidly.
