Default Taking off 8600gt cooler

Hello, I want to take off my evga 8600gt cooler because I want to replace the thermal paste (it is getting hot). But I cant remove it when I try to the screws wont move I stopped trying because I was stripping the screws. I have this one: Newegg.com - EVGA 256-P2-N753-TR GeForce 8600 GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
Do any of you guys have this card?
