so i was trying to take the heatsink off the cpu. this computer was very old and dusty so badly that when i tried to slide off the thing that holds the heatsink to the cpu, it cracked off. i was able to take off the heatsink after just unscrewing and beraking the thing that holds it off. how can i get another one that will hold it or am i going to need to buy a new heatsink its an intel pentium btw.

try a local used computer parts store, they often have old dead motherboards laying around for just such a purpose.
