So I have a Ringendge 2 that needs it's heatsink replaced. This requires pulling the motherboard. I have all of the visible screws removed, but it still seems anchored around the CPU socket... what am I missing?
Hum... generally those are just anchor plates for the socket. But I guess I can try removing them...I would hazard I guess that those 3 Torx screws in your pic could be holding it in place, I stripped mine about a year ago and do recall a similar issue.
That's the plan, waiting on a new cooler to arrive today (basic thermaltake model). Cleaned off the old thermal paste with qtips and isopropyl.
Nice, i will change mines.
