Remove the 3 heat sink screws.

Lift up the heat sink from the motherboard and remove it.

When reinstalling the heat sink during reassembly, make sure to clean off the old thermal paste from the CPU and heat sink with Artic Silver ArtiClean. Then put a grain of rice sized amount of new Artic Silver thermal paste on the CPU so it won't overheat. See 3rd picture.
