G15CF - how to separate cpu cooler backplate from motherboard

Level 7
Hi everybody,

I have got a ROG Strix GT15 G15 (model G15CF-1270KF096W), intel 12700kf, B660 chipset, and I am quite happy with it. But I want to replace the (noisy) cpu cooler.

Unfortunately the back plate of the cpu cooler is anyhow attached to the motherboard's back plate. I assume with a glue. In order to install my favorite cpu cooler, I'd have to replace the cpu cooler back plate as well.

In some older posts (more than 5 years old) I read about trying with a hair dryer, no idea if this might still be working.

Does anybody of you have any more recent experience how to remove the cpu cooler back plate?

any useful comments are highly appreciated.

best regards
