Unlucky chap
Is there no way you could glue it just to stop it spinning while unscrewing it? Hopefully you'll come up with something..

Yup, lay it on its side and place a drop of super glue on the spinning nut. Let cure for an hour.

Thanks, I was going to use super glue, but after 20 mins trying to find the tube I bought just last week I gave up lol.

I screwed another screw into the rear side, held it firm at a slight angle and managed to free it in the end

Now onto the good news! It looks like I got a low voltage chip Here is a shot during a run of IBT, Voltage at 4.6GHz looks great to me. The last one needed 1.260V in the end, so this chip looks real promising.

I am gonna leave it a little while before I attempt any big OC's, but the VID looks pretty good on this chip so I think it's gonna be a winner.

Cheers, Yes mate, a decent lol voltage chip. To be honest I am too scared to do any high overclocks right now. I may leave it a good while before I do. But you never know with me lol.
