You need a cutting tool to take the old chipset out lol.
You probably want to take off old the NB heatsink or fan, not the chipset itself.

yeah, it's usually really simple. What you need to do is:
1) Take off the side of the case.
2) Give yourself some light to investigate.
3) Decipher the attachment mechanism and it's parts.
4) Remove the heatsink and fan with your new found investigation.
