8800 heatsink removal

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have an 8800gt it gets super hot, I'm trying to take the heatsink off and replace the paste, but I tried so hard to get the last 2 screws on the bottom off.. They just won't budge, used all my force lol and still nothing >.> I don't wanna break the card... The thread is kind of coming off too

Any advice?

The best thing to do is to post a pic for us to see. Make sure you have a screw driver that fits the screws snug or itll just strip the scew. Where are the screws located? Around the gpu or mem?
