I am using a Tuniq Tower 120 heatsink and I am about to switch out motherboards, hopefully that fixes my problem. Is there an easy way to get the backplate off? When I put it on, I removed the covering on the adhesive so it would stay in place. I realize now that may be a mistake. I did not think it would be that hard to get off. I have not tried yet but I have read that it is a pain to remove. Anybody have any tricks that make it easy? I don't mind too much if I damage the motherboard since I believe it is messed up anyways. But I would like to avoid it if possible.
G/l I didn't stick mine on for this reason.....

You can try using alchol to break down the adhesive and gently pry it off, adding a bit of alchol as you lift more and more.
i didn't stick mine on either for this reason too

try using a hair dryer to heat up the glue, then it might just come off easy
Thanks for the suggestions. I wish they gave some kind of warning in the instructions about the plate being hard to remove.

Are all backplates the same way? Now for the future, I know not to use the adhesive.

patonb, do you mean rubbing alcohol?
