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 ?

without being powered on? 90°C approx, I think, but maybe heat it up longer at 80°C 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 ?

Deepfreeze @ -10°C 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
