Check the front , where the video outputs are , two screws there from memory that will hold the HSF on still.

How hard should I try to pull the cooler off? The PCB is bending a bit if I try to pull it. I just don't want to break my card.

Grab a hair dryer .. i had to with my second TX to seperate it , warm it up a bit then gently apply pressure .

My 2nd TX was very stubborn , it did not want to be frozen lol.

Thanks, I'll try that and see if it works.

The boards where not very good after that. lots of BIOS issues. The Z77 FTW was notoriously bad for about half of its life.

Carefully take off and store with the screws and heatsink.


I didnt, I stuck my screw driver in that thing and went to work.

How is the waterblock going to touch the middle part which is lower than the rest?

Its not, I don't remember that gap from when I put my EK block on. You can double up the thermal pads to match the height in that spot if you are concerned.

post #8450 of 18248
Talking with a friend about making some custom backplates and he brought up a point I never thought of. Why not put a large thermal pad across the whole rear of the PCB? They do that for aerospace parts they make all the time. Apparently it works well and brings the temps down a tad more then just putting them on the hot parts. Any thoughts?
