NB heatsink.. how to get it off?

How do you get the thing off.. I wanted to take it away to apply some AS3 but the thing won't come off? Am I only supposed to unscrew the white things.. or should I push em down or something?

You'll have to take the motherboard out of the case to get at the back of the motherboard.

Once you can see the back of the board, squeeze the end of the pins so they fit back through the holes. once they are through wiggle the NB a little to loosen the Thermal pad and that should do it..

or maybe I'll wait until I get a new chipset cooler.. I was actually just going to apply some AS3 but if I have to remove the whole board I might wait around for some better.. don't want to take the board out all the time..

I was thinking of getting one of those Zalman copper chipset heatsinks.. any thoughts about that one?

the zalman cooler its crap - i have tried it and it doesn't make good contact - add to that its on par with the epox cooler.
my advice is, just replace the sticker with as3 and see if you can hit 200fsb or whatever. that's what i'm doing.

yeah.. I would get that if it just wouldn't be so damn hard to find over here.. (finland)

seems as these are my options.. the Zalman copper thing..

Thermaltake Crystal Orb

Titan TTC-CUV2AB
http://web2.bdog.fi/netstore/tuotekuvat/2217.jpg

Globalwin FA420

Maybe the Titan would be something to get.. a bit expensive though.. but what the heck?

//edit: err.. meant to say Titan.. not TT.. aanyways..

the titan looks like it is the same as the vantec, though it might not be, kinda hard to tell from the pic, it is pretty similar to an iceberg though

Titan also looks like the Hercules 9700pro cooler. Globalwin FA420 looks like old KR7A NB fan.

I've heard conflict accounts of the Zalman NB copper heatsink. Some have it on fine but others say it doesn't fit! Just looking at the surface area with the tall fins it must perform better than the shorter finned NB heatsinks. For me this one looks the best. The area is 60-63mm wide and alot longer so it could accomodate a quite substantial cooler. I would consider buying the Zalman CPU heatsink but I already bought the zalman bracket separately.

dang.. I couldn't get my mobo out of the case. One of the mobo spacers (one of those round copper coloured things underneath the motherboard that is screwed in to the case) wouldn't come off. It loosened from the back of the case when I was loosening the screws, but not quite so much that it would come away entirely. So the screw just kept going round and round with no effect, while the thing was still attached to the case. So I couldn't get it away. Now untop of it all.. the head of the screw is not in that good shape so I doubt I will get it away without cutting of the spacer or something.
