OK make shure you dont have a permenant bond if it came assemble it doesnt if it does well srry no luck. Most likely it doesnt though anyways after u take off the fan clips not the proccer just the fan clips leave the processor in and pull the sink and fan off it should oly take about 5lbs of force dont put any more then that on
