Some info on how its done here http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=155546

Basically, the cooling unit is held down to the black base (that's attached to the mother board) by two clips.

These clips looks like upside down "U" shape.
At the tips of this clip is a little hook that holds on to the black base mentioned above.

You should see two (or more??) tabs.
Press down on these tabs and you should feel little bit of spring to it.
While pressing the tab, reach down gently pullout (away from the cooling unit) the leg that extends below the tab you are pressing down on.

Do the same for the other one.

That's it!!!
cheers mate, sorted
