Now when I am trying to uninstall the heat sink I am stuck , since I am not able to pull out one of the legs of heat sink, even though its in unlock state. Any ideas ,if any one of you faced similar issues while removeing stock heat sink. I am afraid to break the MoBo, if I apply too much pressure to pull it out.
ohhhh crap... that has happened to me before, but eventually i got it unstuck =/
took a long time but i did it. put it in the unlock state, and hold the piece (the thing the locker is in) down as you pull the unlocker up to avoid breaking the motherboard or chip it.
edit: intel coolers are absolutely retarded =/
they provide good processors but not sufficient enough coolers to accompany the processor which is pretty lame from intel provided that we are actually paying money for the processor
