i use a mag'd screw driver... have so for every disassemble. just dont touch anything that says "bios" on it....

being that the heatsink is a chunk of aluminum, you can boil it in a pot to get everything off it. old thermal grease, dust clots. i've only had to that one time, its more of an emergency type solution. it worked well. you just have let it dry for a very long time. (do not microwave)

I put a bowl with a spoon in it in one time; it was interesting to say the least.
