Remove Noctua NH-D14 Backplate

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just got my replacement B3 mobo for the p8p67 and I was wondering if there was a way to take off the nh-d14's backplate off my old mobo? I'm having trouble figuring out how to take it off without applying too much force and risk damaging the mobo.

EDIT: Nevermind, turns out I just needed to use a little bit more elbow grease. Please disregard this topic.

I wondered if anyone else had this issue when removing the backplate. The rubber pads acted like they had some sort of adhesive on them even though they didn't.

They do get stuck on and it seems like you might be breaking something, but just use slow and steadily increasing pressure until it comes up. It will put up a fight, but they do just pop off.

There's no sticky residue after they come up, the heat just binds the rubber to the MB a little.
