is there any way to get the heatsink off without taking the mobo out??

i wanna take it off to replace the stock heat transfer tape with some antec silver compound and i was wondering if there was any easier way than taking the whole mobo out so that i can get to the 4 pins that hold the heatsink to the mobo...

thanks
