Pentium M, 2 x 2" heatsink size

I just picked up a mini-ITX motherboard, S479 for the Pentium M. I also bought a copper heatsink on the 'bay for use in it, now I see that all P-M heatsinks sold on ebay are 50 x 50mm, while my board looks like it wants something more along the lines of 60 x 60mm (in total heatsink size). It doesn't have mounting clips, but a square set of holes that are 2" apart from each other. What heatsink model will this accept? Is there another socket that I'm unaware of that is compatible with these 2" mounting holes?

Thanks in advance!

  1. Hmm.... sockets 479 heat sinks are rare and hard to come by these days. You may need to create your own mounting brackets for it.

    2" = 51mm
  3. Right, the mounting holes are 2" apart, 50/51mm, square. The mounts also lie directly beneath the heatsink, where it should have threaded posts. The design needs a 60mm x 60mm base.

    Thanks for everyone's help!
