I could barely get mine off my old mobo too... heated it up with a hair dryer... Still was extremely hard. I think I used a flat head screw driver to help lift it up... Also the sticky glue pads thing stayed on the old mobo lol... Basically the backplate separated from the glue pads.

Edit: O wait, you mean you can't get the block unscrewed? I guess something is stripped. Might need some needle nose pliers to hold the inserts in the backplate down or something.

Exactly what I was thinking.

Correct

Not a good situation. At least they are fairly inexpensive to replace if you must. They are $49.99 at Microcenter now... Try squeezing the back plate around the insert with pliers and unscrewing. I have a feeling that it will destroy the back plate though. Maybe Antech will send you a new back plate.. Good luck

Any help will be taken.



This happens when you over-tighten the thumb screws on initial install. Here is what you will need: #2 phillips head screw driver, a pair of needlenose pliers.

Stick the screw driver into one of the screw heads, turn it a little to make sure your in right, push on the screw driver, the little threaded nut should stick out of the backplate a little now. If it doesn't then push down on the thumb-screw with the screwdriver while also pushing the backplate towards the motherboard and it should stick out plenty for you to latch on with the pliers. Do this to all 4 screws to just get them started and then finish turning them with your thumbs.

That's why I quit using the Antec backplate, it's a serious POS.

Just get some needle nosed pliers and grab onto the little nuts on the backplate, then throw said backplate in the garbage.
Buy some 6/32 1.5 inch screws and and some wingnuts, Run the screws through your stock motherboard backplate and use the wingnuts to tighten down the block. Works great plus it doesn't warp your motherboard.

Any noticeable change in temps from stock to the reservoir?

Don't know about Toyota coolant, but I tried some green coolant from the local garage and it left a film in my blocks and Tygon tubing, so I had to scrub it all out. Now I just use distilled water and anti-algae.
