I think I found a replacement for it on newegg:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


It is a mount for the same socket, and the screws seem to be in the same position as in the broken mount I have now.

I jsut wanted to make sure it was the right one before I purchased it.


Thanks in advance

Whether it will work or not will also depend upon the HSF you are using. If you are looking to replace the backplate only, then that should work. If you are looking to replace the entire mount, it would be prudent to search for your HSF's mounting system on E-bay or somewhere simular. I think it would work though (may require a little ingenuity) but I'd try anyway.
