How to remove the socket retention on the Asus K8V Deluxe?

I removed the black thing already but there is a metal plate at the bottom of the motherboard.

How do I remove that?

I want to install the Zalman heatsink.

Just gently pry it off. It's got a sticky foam back that's holding it to the board.

"Very gently" are the key words here. Try pushing it thru the motherboard at the posts with a screwdriver first. If you are going to pry it use something plastic like a credit card because there are traces on the motherboard that can be damage if you break one in the process of prying it off.

I just installed a zalman hs on a sk8n. I gently pushed on the posts and the backplate slowly released from the motherboard. I just wanted to mention that I did not tighten the screws until the bracket met the brass nipples. The heatsink felt more than tight enough with about 1/8 inch of screw thread exposed.
The heatsink i used was the 7000a all copper monster.

Don't care for the Zalman much, but it is quiet.
