I apologize if this is not the right place to post this, Mods: Please move if this is not the most appropriate place for this.

I am looking for the above brackets, I dont think they are available in the US, so I am hoping one of the international users may have a couple laying around that I can purchase. I need 2 total for a dual opteron board I am updating. Thanks in advance for your time.

I have recently found out you can put an AM3 heatsink on a S939 board. If these coolers support AM3, you can't just put it on the S939 board?

I dont think that will work. I need 2 of the bottom left brackets for my board I think that the AM3 are the bottom right, no? The kit only came with one each of the bottom right and the top left brackets. I can probably modify one of those brackets if I fool around with it enough, but I'd probably rather have the real deal anyway.

Sorry, I thought you were trying to get a modern cooler to work on the S939 board and didn't have the brackets.

Seeing as you have one, I'd contact the company and see if you can buy a second set. That or watch the used forums and buy another one. Wouldn't you need two of them anyways?

Yeah, I'd need 2. The H50 cooler is an entry level sealed water cooling solution that was designed by Asetek and licensed to several companies for production. Unfortunately, the US version (made by Corsair) doesnt support the 939/940 like the European version by NorthQ. That's makes it a little more difficult to procure. Hopefully theres someone out there who sees this and has one or more they are looking to get rid of.

Anyway, thanks for your responses and advice.

I also mean wouldn't you need two coolers as well? Buy two of the H50s and put one on each CPU. As an entry level water cooler they can't handle the heat of two CPUs. I think you are better off just buying two of them and finding as way to put them in your case. Actually, seeing as the H50 isn't really better then high end air cooling you might just be best buying some really nice air cooling units.

yes, I already have 2 of those coolers, but there are no brackets supplied with them for the 939/940. The closest bracket that may be able to be modified to fit appears to be one of the intel brackets. Essentially I am SOL unless someone one has a couple of the applicable brackets lying around or if NorthQ gets back to me about sending me the brackets directly.

ended up ordering them directly from the manufacturer in
Denmark... I had to order ten of them, but they already forwarded my contact info twice to other buyers, so when I get them in, I'll have 6 left over. Anyway, If anyone else needs on or more, PM me.
