Got myself an AM4 mounting kit for my NH-C14 cooler and finally proceeded to pull the board out to swap the stock cooler ... but the cooler was firmly stuck, even with the screws taken off, which i found quite odd. Applied a little more force and, to my disbelief, the CPU got yanked right out of the socked (which was locked, obviously) and it's still stuck to the cooler. Several concerns: 1 - did i damage the board? 2 - did i damage the CPU? 3 - how do i unstuck the CPU from the cooler? There don't appear to be any bent pins on the CPU. I've removed many coolers (replaced TIMs and / or CPUs) but this is the 1st time this has happened to me and, frankly, i'm concerned i've borked my new AM4 system Help? EDIT #3 is fixed already: managed to separate the cooler from the CPU.
