Hey again. It's physcially impossible to unscew those darn screws!! Two people have tried now, and we are close to damaging the screws. And by the way, I refuse to send it in again after the horrible long wait for this unit.

Try using a cordless drill with the screw driver bit. That'll loosen it up for you. Just make sure to have someone hold the unit while you apply pressure to the drill.

Already tried this. It just ended up damaging the screwhead. It's unbelievable that Swiftech can make these kinds of products.

Can you try using a pair of pliers on the screws while holding the back plate in a vice or up against an edge so that it doesn't move? If this doesn't work the only thing left for us to do would be to send you a replacement.

Didn't work. It's like the screws are welded together.

I'll only accept a replacement if you send it to me FIRST this time, otherwise just forget about it, I will request a FULL REFUND instead.

I m confused. You over tightened the bracket and want to get pissed off at Swiftech? If that is the case you'd be lucky to get any refund at all. If I m misunderstanding, well, my apologies. I do sympathize with the 5 week wait sucking. It is not an excuse, but it is a new product, and it seems demand outstripped supply followed by a screw up on production change. As long as Swiftech is willing to work with ya keep a level head. No other options really exist at this price point and in this simple of a manner. Worst case you can move to the Cooler Master Eisberg.

I appreciate the picture, that's a really good angle that gives me the info I wanted.

From what I can see I would have trouble fitting the GD65 gaming. The VRM heatsinks on your MoBo are aligned with the end of the RAM slots. the GD65's go a bit closer to the edge. Bummer. Time to re-think the build since it's delayed now anyways.

Thanks again.

He is saying its too tight as it was shipped to him, he cant get it apart to install the unit.
