so basically i'm screwed! :'(
will they take they replace the mobo coz of that?
as mentioned, try a little more force. another thing, the cooler is using standoffs similar to mobo standoffs, and from time to time,some of the mobo screws do not come off as the stand off is just turning freely caused by rotation of the screw which still screwed on. see if you can grab the standoff w/ some angled tweezers and try to remove the screw. if all else fails, I would just rma, complain temps are crazy, and hope they will issue you a new one. good luck

nice! im close to breaking 25k w/ my sli fermis, but Im contemplating changing platforms soon because of the limitations of my setup, I think the fermis can do a lot better then this, overall to be honest. I'm seriously thinking of staying w/in the Asus ROG family though Edited by wermad - 9/8/10 at 10:27pm
