You mean the pluggs? Never had a problem with those

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

Sounds like the thread is completely stripped, can you provide a photo of what you are trying to take off.

Seems more like user error as a whole. Don't see how a screw can be that bad or stop you from doing something.

Have no idea what you’re actually trying to say.

@vramnik7 if you dont have a stripped removal kit then you can either find one to borrow from a friend or go buy one: they arn't that expensive.  

 

if you cannot get the screw out with that then you have a bigger problem.   i have never had a problem removing a screw that i screwed in to mount  the fanless side.

Sounds like the screw itself is seized and won't break free.  It may have to be drilled out if that's the case.  Allen keyed screws don't typically strip like that.
