    Lol, I know what you're talking about, but I don't know where to buy one without getting a new heatsink.

    Buy a 10$ HSF combo from newegg. Look at the pix to see if they come with one.

    I suppose you really need it?

    You can't just use some thermal goo?

    Hi Johnny,

    I'm not aware of any stores that sell a replacement heatsink mount. but you could try a computer repair shop nearby. give them a call, chances are they have a few junk boards lying around (which would likely have a good HS mount). if you're lucky they won't even charge you for it.

    cheers :wave:
