CPU Fan fitting tips please!

I have attempted to fit a Akasa AK-824cu-BL to my cpu socket, but
the clips are so stiff that I am unable to apply enough force to clip them on without risk of damage to MB.

So, I have just fitted the standard Antec fan which came with the CPU.

Any ideas as to how I can get the Akasa fan on without stabbing things with a screw driver?

Thanks
- Dan.

ive always found it to be a big plus to take the MB out of the case and use a pair of vise-grips

Yes, vice grips would be much better than a slotted screwdriver!

I just tried and tried with my slk-800, useing the screwdriver as more of a lever. I hit the mobo a few times, luckily It came out okay.

Well, take the mobo out, it's easier and safer. One of my friends once killed a mobo by hitting it with a screwdriver that slipped when trying to install a cooler.
