Well, he's talking about the heatsink on the mobo, if I'm not mistaken.

Have you looked at that video (http://7of9.keystreams.com/gameman/archives/iceberq_02.wmv) ?

They are pushpins. You should be able to push them through. There is some thermal compound that might be keeping it stuck to the board. :)
