how do we replace the heatsink part of 659335-001. i can't get the metal part to budge. it does wiggle on its own. the fan is easy to replace, is the tape on the bottom heatsink tape, or just normal tape, what the normal non chicken frying temps for a gigabyte angelica. do i basically have to gut the computer, pop out the motherboard, and push the heatsink pins out from the back? or just yank at the white plastic pins with a needlenose?

i got it replaced by mostly removing the motherboard and popping the pins from the back with a needle nose, i cleaned it off with 90% rubbing alcohol and cleaned off the remaining gunk, and dried it carefully with a pad. i also cleaned off the thermal compund on my processor and watercooler in a similar method and replaced the thermal with arctic silver 5. in the future i might have to replace the watercooler. i have found used watercoolers on ebay, but would like to find a new 657398-003 or a suitable replacement that will fit, any ideas on this for a h9 desktop?
