I can't see well from the picture, and I have no experience with P4 boards at all, but I believe that the CPU hold-down is just a plastic bracket. The mount should just be push-through pins. So you should be able to just use something like a small pliers and squeeze the clips together on the back side of the board and push the mount back through.

i used a q-tip and some wiping to get the compound off...it really comes of with patience. As for the socket, what kind of heatsink did you get? I had an slk-94u and it had what sorta looked like retention clips, but they actually went sideways and clamped it onto the stock mounting bracket. Maybe you have some of those?

*edit*

READ THE TOPIC it should have come with 2 skinny bars with curves in them, in thier online installation instructions it shows how to install all thier parts

To get old thermal paste off your heat sink you can buy TIM cleaner. Akasa make this for example, this is the one I use.

Not sure about the mounts. Can you get a close-up shot of them from both sides of the board?

i prefer 99.9 % isopropyl for compound removal on the heatsink, as well as the proc, but you must be careful, as if the iso sits on your cpu for a while(it should evaporate before causing harm, but you never know). it may degrade the pcb. isopropyl is what is recommended by artic silver for AS5.
it can be found at just about any drugstore, but some don't like to sell it to me(i hear it's also used for freebasing, whatever that is)
