check the arctic cooling site for instructions... i'm pretty sure they'll have something since they sell the VGA silencer, commonly used in 9700Pro's.

good luck..

if you've just got the black stock heatsink, just make sure you pull the pins out from teh top before you push them out from the bottom (i know that made no sense, so i tried to include some drawings below)

the pushpins are actually in two pieces: [--- ("the pin," which goes into the arrow) and ===> ("the arrow," which goes through the pcb)

so make sure you pull "the pin" out of "the arrow" before you attempt to push the arrow out, otherwise you won't be able to squeeze the tip through the pcb

hope that made sense
