Default Opening a Dell Intel® Celeron ® Processor 420

I dont know if this is the right place to post but I recieved a Dell Intel® Celeron ® Processor 420 from my brother in Sweden and I cannot for the life of me open it up to have a look inside. Where are the little screws to open it up? This is slowing down my Botabitanicks project.

I'm confused. Are you looking to open the processor itself (the little chip) or get inside the computer?

By the way I read the post, he said that he wants to open the processors inside, very difficult.

I do not suggest you to open it, you anyway will damage it, because when one of the pins of processor losses or breaks, it got the role of a damaged processor.
However if you open it, there will be nothing interesting inside.

If you remove the heatspreader, you run the risk of ripping the core from the die.
