To be fair I didn't roast you too much because I *hate* those plastic push pins. I remember once my Intel cooler came off, and I had to use more than reasonable force to eventually get it on correctly. They should stop making them like that tbh. Horrible things.

The AMD stock cooler is actually pretty good in that respect as you just hook both loops of the cooler onto the board and pull the level all the way to the opposite side, But even then it can't exactly make up for a warped cooling plate.
