Need CPU heatsink that will fit on Gigabyte AMD Motherboard mount

January 22, 2010 5:03:19 PM

Does anyone know of a CPU heatsink/fan that fits on the following motherboard?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I bought an arctic cooling heatsink, but there's only two little adapter mounts to install this heatsink, and I can't get the heatsink on tight enough to stay clamped to the CPU while the tower is standing, which results in overheating. I want a heatsink that will install directly onto the Gigabyte Motherboard's mount with 4 screws, so that the heatsink remains completely sturdy and doesn't move around at all. I also need it to be small enough so that it fits horizontally in the case, and it doesn't have to share space with one of my RAM slots. Thanks!

P.S. Here's the link to the fan that isn't fitting correctly: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
