Hi guys. My first post so please be gentle with me.
Anyone know why replacement clips can`t be obtained here in the UK but seem to be available in the United States?
Socket 775 CPU Retention Clips - 4-pack
Seems a shame to trash a perfectly good heatsink and fan for the sake of a few bits of plastic worth about 2 or 3 quid.
I know it`s a fairly rubbish way of securing the cooler to the mobo but it`s the only low cost way of doing it apparently.
I did manage to buy a second hand complete fan/heatsink from a local computer shop for £3 to get me running again but would still like to re-install the original. (Although the clips fitted to the new unit are essentially the same as the original, the black part is incorporated into the fan guard so I couldn`t just swop them over).
Thanks for any advice re getting some new clips in the UK.
