-[* black] Insert wisdom here.
+[* red] Remove the three 8.4 mm #1 Phillips screws securing the heat sink to the logic board.
+[* icon_note] Don't lose the springs held under each of the screws.
+[* black] Carefully remove the heat sink from the processor.
+[* icon_note] If the heat sink seems to be stuck, it may be helpful to gently pry it off the processor with a plastic spudger. Be careful not to break any surface mount components on the processor while prying.
+[* icon_caution] Be sure to clean off the old thermal paste and apply a new layer before you reinstall the heat sink. We have a [guide|744|guide] that makes it easy.
