Default heatsink removal

I just bought a Zalman 9700 and I need to remove my existing Intel QX6700 hsf but I don't know how to do it. Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks

It's in your Intel processor manual. What you basically have to do is rotate all of the four black pins a quarter circle, then you can pull the pins up and take the heatsink out of the board.
