    "Smells good!"

    Couldn't find the image of him from the Futurama episode "Three Hundred Big Boys" where Fry buys a cup of coffee and Nixon says, "smells good!"
    Turns out this image is actually more fitting.

    Nice HCH9!

    Moving from my 1090T to a 3930K and my my D14 took the 1090T out of the socket... Had to use a hairdrier to get it off, ha.

    If the system has cooled completely one might need to twist the cooler to break the seal. You might also take a close look for bent pins if the socket lock was in the closed position.

    usually I hit the fins of the HSF with some heat (hair drier does a good job) before I use a gently twisting motion to break the seal and remove the HSF

    but lucky for you MP it doesn't look like it bent any pins :)

    those chips stick to the heatsinks all the time. i tend to use a pin or razor blade to break the seal, then a drop of two of articlean to loose it up right away. greatly reduces the twisting effort required.

    The best thing to do is run some kind of CPU stress program to heat it up for a few minutes, then power it down and pull the heatsink.

    That's what I do. Seems to work better and faster than the hairdryer method, though I must admit I've never had a stuck chip using either method. Before learning that trick though, my 754s used to stick all the time!

    Have you seen any other headsets use JL 40mm drivers?

    Yeah, an old Sennheiser headset I had. They were 18 ohm impedance.
    They sounded good, but I ended up swapping the drivers for some 32 ohm SFI orthodynamic drivers.
