What is the easiest way to get the heatsinks off my 7900GT SS ,I have a Evga 7900GT SS and I put a Zalman VF 900-Cu on it and I need to put the original cooler back on it ,and they are stuck pretty tight and I don't want to brake the memory ,I have heard of different methods but need to know what is the best way ,I have heard of putting it in a zip lock bag and put it in the freezer and I have heard of useing a hair dryer to get them hot and they are supposed to come off easier ,plus I have heard of just useing a razor blade and just slide it under it and it should pop off.what is the most common way or what seems to work best ,any help would be appreciated.

I'd run 3dmark for a while to get the card all hot then while the card is still hot twist the heatsinks off.

would'nt a hair dryer do the same, getting them real hot and then just twist them off.
