You just twist the parts that are sticking up out of the 4 corners and lift them up, they pull up maybe a 1/4 inch / 6mm and you can pull up on the cooler, they do feel stuck sometimes because the clips are still holding on some on the back side of the motherboard but they squeeze in a little and the cooler releases.
