Anyway most Dell computers use a metal block with a green "funnel" and fan on it as a heatsink, this is non-transferable to any other computer. You'd need a new heatink and fan as well on the new board. Normally you release the two green clips and the metal block comes straight up, most of the time bringing the processor with it. A new heatink usually comes with thermal paste either in a tube or as a thermal pad.
Don't forget you may not be able to re-use the Dell case with a new motherboard so you may need a new computer case as well. Also don't forget a Windows repair, don't boot it straight up as it will just blue-screen at you.
