Striped screw on GTX470? - Page 7

post #61 of 62
I had this problem with my evga GTX480s when trying to remove the heatsink for the EK full block. It started stripping the screw but thankfully I got it undone with the screwdriver with a bit of downward force. Stupid thread lock glue stuff on the ends.

My eVGA 480 I was able to remove all of them.
I guess it depends on the card, some are screwed in a bit more than others. Maybe the goo stuff acts like that in odd cases as the guy on top of me remarked. Because I really had no trouble with all the others.
