If you can't get the heatsink off without pulling the processor out too then make sure it's unlocked.

Also clean it outside.

If the computer needs cleaning out, first remove the power cord from the wall and open up the case, take anti static precautions before touching anything inside, you can do this by touching a bare metal part of the case, remove the video card, blow out the slot and re-seat the card securely, do the same with the memory sticks, clean all internal fans, if you use canned compressed air do not let any fan spin freely this can damage them, use something like a clean lollipop stick or a Q tip to hold the fan in place whilst you clean it.
Ensure that all internal connections are secure and that there are no loose components.
Just a cautionary note - if you do use canned compressed air do not upend the can as it is possible for fluid to be emitted.
