need help seperating the 2 pushpin parts without breaking them
I'm having problems removing the pushpins from the Scythe Ninja rev.b LGA 775 retention system so I can use the Thermalright bolt-through kit with it. I've tried yanking on them real hard but they won't budge. Is there some trick to separating the 2 parts?
I can try to use excessive force but I'm afraid of bending the metal or just breaking the plastic pushpins. I want to get rid of them but still save them. If this is impossible I guess I'll have to cut through the plastic, but I'd really rather avoid that. Any help is appreciated.
