Twist in the direction of the arrows and pull up on each of the pins. Then slowly twist the heatsink off.

might take a bit to get it off from the TIM so be careful and twist not pull.

You pop the pins one by one and you will know when they let go, thought the Heatsink may still be stuck to the CPU from the thermal paste so if you think you have all four of the pins Undone just twist it back and forth and it should come off.
