You need detach the heat sink from the CPU. Locate the four clamps holding it down, two on each side. Taking off the clamps can be difficult. Use a screwdriver to push down on the top of the clip. Then insert a spudger below the heat sink to pull it away from the board, releasing the heat sink.

Removing graphics (video) card is not necessary. Also, removing the clips which retain heat-sink can be accomplished by using a flat-blade (-) screwdriver to carefully pry them from the finned aluminum assembly. Other than these two suggestions, guide is succinct and accurate.
