    As the title says, I went to take the heatsink off my P4 3.0 and the cpu came with it, I am not sure how to get it off, can I just 'pull' it off? Or is there a secret?

    Thanks

    I assume this is the oem heatsink with that crappy tin-foil they use... Gently pry the cpu off... then use a razor to remove that crappy tin-foil that intel insists on using, and apply a high-quality thermal paste.
