Put it in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer for about 15 to 20 minutes. Then take a credit card or something similiar to put against the pcb. Take a screwdriver and carefully pry up on the heatsink making sure the credit card is against the pcb so you won't damage the traces. It should pop off. Visiontek usually doesn't put the glue on very well. I have done this with many of their cards and haven't damaged one yet.

I've done the same thing Bull did for my Aopen GF4TI4200, and it worked like charm :) .. just make sure to put your card in a bag, coz' if u don't, when u get the card outside to room temp, condensation would produce water all over your card .. disasterrr!! ...:D
