Hi, I own a zalman cnps9700, which I absolutely think is a great cooler and i've always been very pleased with it. I bought it when I first owned a socket 775 core2 system, then used it on my amd phenom ii box, but now i've upgraded to a haswell system with an asrock h87 fatality motherboard and the backplate+retention bracket for the cooler don't fit!

From what i've read this is not a wholly uncommon problem on the internet, however I cannot find where in the name of bejesus you buy a new retention bracket for 1155/1156/1150 motherboards. I really don't want to bother replacing the entire cooler because the heatsink and fan work perfectly after 5 years and I don't think i'll ever be this happy with a HSF again.

I'm a Canadian resident, if anyone can point me in the right direction or even provide me with some direct links to what reseller or manufacturer provides these modifications I would be very appreciative.

I would inquire with Zalman here: (for all North America inquiries) they should be able to direct you where to find one
