HSF pushpins

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I recently got a Arctic Freezer Pro to replace my stock Intel HSF. I was having installing it on my mobo as the push pins would not go in.

I then discovered the push pins had been bent out of position to which i presumed was the reason they werent sticking in. So i just got some new push pins and was wondering how it is best to remove the original pins from my HSF to replace them. Or is it just a saw job and cut them off???

I've never removed the pins from my AC7 but I presume you can just pull the up so they're unlocked, then push the tabs together on the bottom of the pin and pull it out from the socket.

Then the new pins should just slip in the same way.

If you can, just saw them off. You're not using them anymore anyway.

Pull them up as far as they go, then turn it numerous times and it pulls off.

Then put the new ones in place, turn them to the right a few times and push down.
