So I'm moving my H50 from an LGA1366 to an LGA775 system, and I'm having the time of my life (not) taking the pieces of plastic that go in each corner of the ring-shaped thing that's part of how the cooler is attached. Talking about the pieces of plastic through which the screws go, just to be clear. How the hell does one take those out of the metal ring? There's a little plastic thing you can push to take one side out, but then on the other side there's another, immovable plastic notch that is preventing me from doing anything. I don't want to apply too much force since I don't want to bend the metal ring. Is there a trick to it I'm not getting?
Edit: never mind, it was just the one that was being a pain. I broke it in the process of removing it. The others came out easily by using a flathead screwdriver as a lever. Probably won't be using it in another system, so it's no problem that the one's broken.
