Is anyone here knows how to take of the heatsink from the motherboard chipset. I'm using msi 745 ultra. Unfortunately, the heatsink doesn't have any screw. So, I cannot take the heatsink of the chipset. Somebody, please help me.

You have to pull the M/B and release the plastic clips from the backside.

On that mobo the heatsink is just stuck on with glue or thermal tape (or perhaps even epoxy), so you'll either have to warm it up and prise the little thing off or you will need to put the mobo in the freezer and then lever it off with a heatsink, either way works.
