Just make sure your using a screw driver with a tip that fits well. Don't want to strip the screws ...

Otherwise, just apply firm pressure and slowly work them off ... if your careful and have a screwdriver that's the right size, you won't hurt anything.

I have the same card and have replaced my stock cooler as well ...

Go slow and only do a couple spins at a time for each screw, going around. Don't fully undo one without starting the others, in other words. Same for putting the new one on. Even pressure at all times.
