Removing Heatsink

Adam Leinss

Hi guys.

Just ordered a water cooling kit from Danger Den. To prep for this, I
tried to remove the heatsink/fan from the CPU (Intel 478). I bought
the complete PC system as a custom build from Monarch Computers about 3
1/2 years ago. I've uploaded some pictures here:

Sorry about the low quality: the only camera I have is in my phone. On
my order they list the heatsink as a Dynatron DC1206BM-L/610-P-CU.
However, when I do a Google search on this part # it doesn't look
anything like mine. Here are the numbers from the top of the fan:

A74895-003
N3110VS
FDBA-12B157 NIDEC Corp

These could just refer to the fan as it has an Intel logo right on top.
Looks like there are 4 plastic pegs attached to the motherboard holding
the heatsink assembly down meaning that I would have to remove the
motherboard and pinch the plastic pegs before I could remove the
heatsink. Does that sound reasonable? Doesn't seem logical that you
would have to remove a motherboard to remove a heatsink, but it appears
to be that way in this case.

Thanks,
Adam
