I've found that applying gentle heat onto the base of the cooler with something like a hair dryer on a low setting, on all 4 sides (not on the side of the cpu that has the pins) and with one finger on either side on the cpu very gently wiggle the cpu in a circular motion can work (make sure to not touch the cpu pins!)
