Heatsink clip broken!!!
Jul 14, 2010, 4:44 PM
Recently whilst replacing my CPU, I couldn't remove my heatsink, and ended up braking the clips on the side of the socket. Is there any way I can replace the clips?
I have an ASRock K7S41GX Socket A/462 Mobo

Can't you just replace your heat sink all together with something like this??
