    Hi All

    What’s the easiest way to get the CPU off the cooler. It’s a AMD.

    I forgot to run it hot before I took it off … and correct me if I am wrong I cannot just “put it back on”

    thoughts

    thanks

    Twist the CPU carefully to help break the seal. Best to clean the cooler and CPU and put on some new thermal paste if reinstalling.

    All good now guys. I guess it was too conservative when trying to take it off.

    didn’t want to break anything

    thanks
