Thumbs down Urgent PLZZZZ help!!...chipset problem

.........................

I was cleaning my i7 rig yesterday and I stumbled upon a broken CHIPSET COOLER BRACKET!!!!!!!

WTF!!!...

the chipset heatsink has been hanging since a long time.... and that would also explain my high chipset temps (50-55C).....now when I tilt the cooler a bit the temp rises about 78C....then I tilt the cooler back!!!......

...what do i doo????????????????

I dont have any thermal paste...and i have kept my rig horizontal for now....

If I am to order a new cooler for the chip set....do I need to know some rules....like are there any chipset sizes????....like LGA775 vs LGA 1366 are diffrent in cpu heatsink brackets size

and I dont have much choice I don't live in USA so I can maybe order from amazon.com....

as for my other option....I can RMA it....but what good would that be....
.....I dont have much options in my country......Plus did I mention I have no acess to the purchase of thermal paste or past remover.....

Im sooooooooooooo screwed.....help help....what should i do.....

PS,,,CAn some one move this thread to the corect place and do inform me

Are you talking about the bracket in the pic below?

You could try to get a hold of Intel for a replacement bracket.

If you could get some thermal adhesive that would work. You may not be able to.

Newegg.com - Arctic Silver ASTA-7G (2-PC-SET) Premium Silver Thermal Adhesive - Thermal Compound / Grease

I know you cannot order from newegg but just to show you what you are looking for. It also comes in a tape form.

For a X58 mobo you should get this
Thermalright HR-05/IFX High-Riser Northbridge Cooler Products Model: HR-05/IFX [HR-05-IFX] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

and it will need a 80mmx15mm fan, this one is a blue LED

Hiper "Thin" 80 X 15mm Case Fan - 4 Blue LED's - Sleeved Products Model: HFF-1B08N [HFF-1B08N] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

or this one is a plain black.
Delta 80x15mm AFB0812LB Low Speed - Sleeved Products Model: AFB0812LBDelta 80x15mm AFB0812LB Low Speed - Sleeved Products Model: AFB0812LB [AFB0812LB] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

Here's a picture with that heatsink on my Office PC which has the EVGA X58 LE mobo. If I didn't have the copper heatsinks on the video card I could of mounted the NB fan on the opposite side and then have room to rotate the True.

Good god Slaymate, that's an office computer?

I don't think you could possibly fit more metal on that motherboard.

slaymate, that looks almost like my old 680i... went with every aftermarket thermalright cooling solution that thermalright offered lol... *to poster* if you can find these parts anywhere, they will be your best friend. are there any retail shops around, any computer repair shops? they might be able to get a better price. also, where did the bracket break at? might be able to have a new one made for really really inexpensive if it's just a wire bracket... talking under a dollar US currency. don't necessarily need a brand new one. otherwise, well, might be a hassle, but it would preserve your warrenty and you will get the exact, numbered part put back on it

Don't use SuperGlue!!!

RMA'ing the board is your best option.
