I was attempting to remove the heat sink from my CPU to apply new thermal paste when the both came out attached. I have tried using fishing line soaked in both alcohol and acetone as well as brute force to seperate the two. Any other suggestions to seperate them?? Neither the CPU or MoBo were hurt in the process
I already ended up getting a new
CPU and motherboard (not enough to clearance to reseat them as is) but I would still like to get them apart so I can sell them.
