Default Heatsink problem.

Hey can anyone offer some help?
I am trying to remove my Heatsink to install a new CPU but i cant seem to find a way to remove it.
Its a CoolerMaster CM12V. It appears to be a pair of 3 lug clips... any help would be appreciated..
Thanks

find the metal clip connecting your heat sink to the board then push down HARD with a screw driver and move the heat sink to one side and it should be removed.

with a screw driver lol u will fuk your motherbored up be very care fully, if you have unclipped it just move it around a bit it will then be easy to remove, rember to put grease on your new cpu most cpu's will have it on as soon as you remove the plastic.

Good Luk

you have to pust the clip down and across so a screw driver is a good idea, still be very careful when doing that
