Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get the stock HSF off of this card. No screws or anything, just glued on, but afraid I'll break it.

Any Suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

Try using a little bit of rubbing alcohol to loosen the glue (it might be thermal epoxy, though) and then pry it off GENTLY!! Hope that helped.

Then there's the freezer trick: put it in an anti-static bag, freeze it for a good while, then carefully pop off the old HS with the now-brittle glue.
