^^ It is not integrated, but there are clips that hold it on and the crappy TIM that Dell uses. Dell uses a thermal pad to transfer heat between the cpu and hs. This stock thermal pad is total crap. If the comp has been running for a while, then that stock pad has probably melted down and basically fused the cpu/heatsink together. Just get the comp nice and warm by running Prime 95 or something like that, then turn it off really quickly and the heatsink should be lose enough to pull off.
