No, it was actually the plastic ring arround the CPU socket, to which the fan would be secured. They are available, but not the same one that ASUS uses on their MOBO.

As it turned out, when the fan mount broke, the MOBO fried before it turned itself off. Fortunately, my new Phantom 4X 9850 CPU did not fry, and I had a spare MOBO, so now I a m up an running once again, and do not need the plastic bracket that broke. I did find out that it would have been available through ASUS support.
