So I have several SAS->FC bridges bought for just $20/each. My first step after receiving the package was to crack open one of them and see whats inside.
Ok, there are SAS and FC controller chips, 4Gb of DDR2 RAM, and some sort of CPU covered with this heatsink which is likely to be glued to the CPU's IHS. How do I remove it undestructively to identify the CPU as I wonder if this board worthy fiddling with it to try and make mini server (there are also a bunch of 2.5mm pitch pins and unsoldered pads for what I think could be mini pci-e connectors) ?

looks like they are just held on by those plastic clips

Removed clips right away. The heatsinks sit on the chips rather firmly to try and pry off the lids with miniature steel hooks

Have you tried isopropyl alcohol?

They might have used some thermal wax. Heat them a bit.

Resolution:
Put it into freezer on lowest temp, cool for few hours.
Actually, I was surprised how easily the heatsink came off.

Just turn it on and load up live linux or something you fool, you can see all your hardware there.

Or just look up the model number
