SOURCE: Manual for disassembling
I got mine open in under 30 minutes. It's really pretty easy. I don't know how far you got, but there's only a few tricks here. Take the hard drive, CD drive, and battery out, first. There are four screws hidden by the battery. Then also, you have to unscrew and remove the heatsink/fan assembly before you can get the mobo out, so you have to remove the large panel on the bottom. Finally, once you remove the heatsink/fan and all the screws holding the mobo to the bottom of the case, it may still feel stuck. You have to wiggle the audiojack ports out first, then lift it out minding the wirewire port.

While I am not familiar with this exact model, (is it a laptop or desktop?), Overheating quite often is a symptom of not just needing a cleaning but of a fan failing, I wish I could tell you what exactly to do to open your unit up to clean it... When you do AVOID using any canned or compressed air on the cooling fans, as this will spin them up to speeds far faster than they are designed for, and if they are failing this can take them over the edge.
