Default 478 Bracket

I currently have an Dell Dimension 4600 (Yes it sucks but my future build is on the way), I got a new heatsink for it for free, but the retention bracket for Socket 478 didn't come with the heatsink. Now I need to buy a real 478 bracket, not this cheap dell bracket cause the heatsink wont fit on the dell bracket, the problem is I can't find a good online retailer that sells 478 bracket (i.e. newegg, clubit.) Can anyone find me a new 478 bracket, and this is what I need to do correct? Im 90% sure it is.

Now I also see another problem, on the board the CPU fan connection is very small its made for a dell 3 pin connector, so I took off the 3 pin connector and put the heatsinks wires into the dell 3 pin connector, now when I plug it into the CPU connection on the motherboard, the fan will not spin...???

You are on the the track, but I think the holes for the Dell VS a real 478 bracket is different.

I've been wondering the same thing, can anyone confirm or deny this?

Will this allow me to plug the CPU fan and the case fan on the front of my CM Stacker in one cord using this splitter.

Also, does anyone know if a dell 478 bracket is the same as a real 478 backet? Hole wise?

Yes.

I don't think there is others here who know, but in general, Dell makes things non-mainstream.
