Gotta RMA my motherboard but the retention bracket for my CPU cooler is on it. What can i use to get it off? it's stuck with some sort of adhesive.

This is the second thread this week I've seen on this. Why do people not have the foresight to prevent this?

Use any good solvent. Acetone is really good for eating adhesive. Be careful with it.

Although, honestly, it won't hurt it if you tear it off. Be mindful that you're not tweaking the board, but give that sucker a firm pull.

Some fishing line will do it get it under it and work it back and forth a hair dryer will also do it, get it hot and twist it. This is the main reason i never take the cover off the sticking pad. Just leave it on and be done with it.
