What Apple Torx head do I need? - A1418 A1419

Hi guys,

I'm working in an ITAD / Repair capacity, and I have some motherboards from iMac A1418 and A1419 I'm trying to remove the heatsinks from, so I can determine the CPU model.
I've tried a couple random 6-point star heads I had lying around, nothing doing.
My Google-fu is also apparently terrible as far as this particular question goes.

The last thing I want to do is spend $10+ on a niche screwdriver that doesn't fit, and I won't have any other use for.
I would also like to avoid buying something like a full iFixIt kit or something else that's all-inclusive.

Just trying to find the one screwdriver...

Any help from you Apple Pros / repair junkies?

Thanks!

Should be T10 for the heatsink, but also T5 and T8 for the long journey to the heatsink itself.

Actually, hold on. Which year is this iMac? A1418 and A1419 go from 2012 to 2017. Not sure if the internal screws are the same though.

Edit: So far T8 and T10 were listed on ifixit for heatsink removal even on pre 2012 iMacs.

(un)Fortunately, the motherboards have already been removed from the cases.

I haven't been able to find any Logic Board numbers in the format google is providing, and I don't have original serial numbers.
Just a big ol' pile of motherboards...

They're running PC3L-12800 and Samsung m.2 drives.

There is a sticker down by the RAM cage thing, here's 2 examples from there:
CE3D 31PITMB00H0
CE3D 31PITMB00B0

But I'm not finding the Apple sticker with barcodes anywhere on this board.

Thanks for the advice so far, though!

My guess would be T8. Obviously T5 is smaller than T8 so maybe you can tell.
