    Socket A Heatsink Removal

    Anyone know of an easy way to remove a Socket A heatsink?

    I've tried pressing down with a screw driver and (when I don't slip and cut myself) the metal bar does actually move down but I then need to somehow move it across so as to unclip it.

    Any ideas??

    EDIT: Sorted! Why do Dads always know best?
