    Hello once again folks, I have a dum questions here : how do I remove the VRM heatsinks of Accelero Xtreme PLUS on gtx 580....if I used the VR004 set with thermal adhesive glue... to put it bluntly how to remove thermal adhesvie without damaging the card...if it is possible at all.

    Thanks.

    Warm them up with a blowdryer and they should come off easy

    Yes, I have the same cooler and had it on the same card. All it takes once they are warm is light pressure to get them off.

    Fewf, cause first I was like super happy about the temps, then I got bat-sh*t scarry when I started thinking that I won't be able to remove the adhesive since it was cured and all, and thus won't be able to put the original sink back, if the card go rogue on me.

    Thanks for brinning me at ease.
