    You normally take the motherboard out and squeeze the plastic plugs
    with some pliers or something from the underside of the board.

    there like a \||/ on the ends each side of the V stop it comming out
    so you need to squeeze it but it means access to the underside
    unless your prepared to lose them and snip-em from the top and buy
    some more or use thermal epoxy.

    I just used a pair of pincers and cut them off... prob a bit more risky than doing it carefully with pliers tho.

    im guessing you fitting a zalman?

    Don't cut them off, coz you won't be able to use them again!

    Pinch them as PMM said. BTW, that \||/ diagram looks just like them!
