Heatsink stuck to CPU (not vice versa)

 Share


My heatsink is stuck hard to my cpu and it's not coming of the mobo. Pulling, twisting, it's not even buging slightly, like it's melded to it.

I'm presuming the heatpast cooked or something, sadly i dont have a hairdryer to heat it up. 

Badly in need of some quick help here, need it done by tomorrow!

 

(Ryzen 5 1600 with stock heatsink)

Putting a few drops of isopropyl alcohol at the top might help

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

release the retention arm, take the heatsink with the cpu attached out of the case and use a credit card to pry them apart.

That's more or less what happened in the end, just didnt release the retention arm.

Heating it up with some system stressing didnt really do much.
