I am thinking of water cooling my mobo and CPU, I just want to know how to remove the chipsets so I can put a water block on it.

What motherboard? Most of them should use these plastic clips of which all you need to do is get to the back of the motherboard and pinch them with pliers.

Asus M2N32-SLIdeluxe, although that isn't the motherboard I want to do this to. I am going to do it to the EPoX EP-AD580XR.

Well then, that looks easy enough, that one's heatsink uses the plastic clips I was talking about, they work by going through the hole, then spreading to hook onto the backside of the board so you can't pull it out. You use pliers to pinch the two things back together so it fits through the hole again, easy.

I was trying to figure this out on a broken MOBO I have lying around, It's easy enough thanks.
