abit doesn't glue them on. they're using 2 push pins to connect them. you should be able to get that worthless thing off without a problem (my bp6 didn't even make contact between the HS and the chipset :( )

Blue Orb

Anyway, from what I researched, they say use an old credit card, flat fairly hard surface and a wide flat tip screwdriver. It doesn't hurt to put the board in the freezer for a bit too. Pry against the flat credit card under the hs. I haven't tried it but have a blorb coming for a V6800. Good luck.

I think I saw that at overclockers.com

sheesh, does the chipset really get that hot that it needs a heatsink?

Its better to have the chipset cooled for stability reasons. Its especially better to do this when overclocking.
