I swap out my Corsair A50 heatsink from my 775 rig into a 1156 rig to test something I got off BST. When I try to swap back, one of the adjustable leg is stuck. Any suggestion on how to fix it? Corsair doesn't sell replacement bracket for the A50.

Can you grab the bolt with a pair of needlenose and twist it? IIRC the bolts on my A50 are oblong at the slot so they'll only go through one way.

Well I did it a bit differently. I grab it from the bottom and then wiggle it down to the 775 slot. The bolt is completely stuck while the other three would giggle a bit so you can slide them up and down the slots.
