    Have you tried the rubberband method (google it). Alternatively a jewellers triangle file or a hobby drill with a very thin cutting disc to cut a slot, just make sure you tape off the surrounding areas to stop metal dust getting into machine.

    I have also removed a screw with epoxy glue, put a bit of glue on stripped head and use another screw head down, so head to head. Leave till glue has cured and then use pillars to unscrew. May work for you.

    Think the screws are M2*4L (but the service should tell you for sure)

    Okay for whatever reason. The fans have stabilized on my laptop now. Temperatures seem to hover around 60 Celsius. I just received all my Amazon order today too.... so I guess I shouldn't bother doing anything unless the fan and temperature gets out of control again?

    Edit: Spoke too soon....

    Sounds like something is not happy with the cooler be it the pipe or mounting.

    For now I'm just going to leave it the way it is. The cooling and fans are stabilized mostly. Only on sparse occasions will the fan shoot up.

    Could be the kink is causing issues as certain angles or loads.
