    I remember I opened one of these things... Just try the two whitey things. Pull them up with a LOT of strenght. I remember these things were pretty stubborn to remove. After that, you should feel that something has loosened. After this, open with your hands some of the lower black clamps (the two on one side should suffice), and it should come away.

    Yeah, I remember something like this... There's no other way, you have to overcome the fear of breaking it, otherwise it will never come away [​IMG]

    Be sure to gently remove the lower clamps from the lower black piece (the one directly under the processor), I remember they came away pretty easily. You just have to bend them a little with your fingers to free the clamps. After that, just lower your processor on the opposite side and the other two clamps should came away with the fan block.

    BTW, there's almost NO risk of damaging the processor, as is solidly locked under it. The worst that could happen is that you have to buy another fan block [​IMG]

    Yes, but be sure that the vacuum cleaner isn't too strong (not that it could damage something, but better be careful than sorry [​IMG] ) [​IMG]

    Make sure that you got good conductivity with the cpu and the heatsink/fan - you may need to use a thermal pad or thermal paste, or get a good cpu cooler if you wanted e.g. the one here http://www.ebuyer.com/product/140478

    Oh, got to add, lagging can be caused by many things like the ram or hard-drive, etc
