Default Replace R9800XL cooler

I need to replace a cooler from a R9800XL (it's a Medion ...), but I can't get the cooler of, it doesn't move a mm. I've tried heating it up to 75 but even then it doesn't move at all .

What the best way to remove the cooler without breaking the card or the core ?

heating it up with blow dryer should work...

What's the max. temperature it can handle ? Because it'll have to be a lot higher than 75c.

without being powered on? 90C approx, I think, but maybe heat it up longer at 80C and use a flat screwdriver wrapped in piece of cloth to push upwards between HSF and PCB

95 and a screwdriver did the trick .
I was first a bit afraid to use a screwdriver, but in the end it proved to be very usefull .
@[Bonbon] The 9800XL has the same mounting holes as a 9800Pro, not ?

Yes, with Artic Silver Compound the freezing trick works actually quite well, no screwdrivers needed. I do let the card dry out for another day, shortage because of forming condens is very likely to happen otherwise.

Deepfreeze @ -10C or something like that, trap your piece of hardware in there for aprox 1 hour and you shouldn't have much problems removing the HS.

don't like to force that needs to be applied doing the freezer method, with blowdryer it comes off easier
