my ryzen 2700x is stuck on the prism cooler

I have been soaking it in alcohol, used q-tips soaked in alcohol to get thermal paste off the sides, also tried credit card and floss.

I also bought the ArctiClean 60ml Kit and it didn't help.

 

before all the cleaning. (idk why the forum rotated the image the cpu pins are looking up)
