As a last resort, you could drill out the screw head.
It's a risky procedure, take special care or maybe ask a qualified person to do the drilling part.

M3 screw extractor should work with screw head used with our XG7 water blocks.
Head of the screw is already destroyed. Once removed please dispose of destroyed screws. Our tech support will be able to provide a set of replacement screws.

Ohh, unfortunate!

Make sure to apply a new layer of thermal compound and use new screws. If you will not be able to purchase new screws somewhere local give us a ping at your support ticket. We will be able to help you out.

You will need M2.5x5mm screws.
