Default Intel cooler gone all clingy, will not detach.

A mainboard died, so I wished to salvage the i7 CPU therefrom. Has stock
Intel cooler. Can turn one of the locks 90 degrees, but the other 3 only
turn about 60 degrees, so can't pull them up. I have done this at least
100 times before.

I have no explanation but why not hack the pins off from below and
replace them with new ones?

ebay search = "Fastener Mount Pin For Intel Socket LGA 775 CPU
Heatsink Cooling Fan"

https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_f...at=0& _sop=12


I've had the same difficulty, not being able to turn the lock-down pins
all the way back. However, if I turn them about as far as I can and then
push down with one hand on the heat sink fan at the center, while
pulling on the pin with my other hand it releases. I do that for each
lock down pin.

I put in some silicone lube, which freed 2 of them, but the last was stuck
hard. So I hard to cut it off from the other side. I have spare coolers in
the junk box, so not worth crying about.
