Ok, I have a Dell 8300 desktop... yes it IS listed as a quick release board, however.... I need to use the heatsink bracket that is attached to the motherboard its self on my new board. Any ideas on how to remove the lame plastic "plugs" they used that seem to be tamper proof in order to transfer to the new board?

Post pic.... you got it! Well as close as I could anyhow!

This is as close to showing you as I could get as to what these plugs look like. As you can see they are kind of like retainer pins but are basically one time use. (I ended up breaking them off and going to buy new ones as soon as I find a place to buy some! I was luckily moving all the items to a new board with a new heatsink and processor.)
