Hi guys today i decided ti clean my 5850 cooler because i havent done this since i got it. I removed all 10 screws from the back of the card and 2 next to the DVI connectors and the cooler still cant be removed somehow. Should i remove the 4 little screws that are holding the core HSF in order to remove the plastic thingy to clean the dist of the fan and inside?
Thanks
