Default PGA socket extender (Riser) Availability

Hi everyone,
I bought PowerLeap PL Pro MMX Upgrade adapter for my 1997 socket 7 computer. The machine runs perfectly with the original Cyrix Pr 166. Though ould run a bit faster to run some music software a bit smoother.

The socket 7 has a couple of capacitors right on its edge. This prevents the PowerLeap fitting into the socket. It seems a PGA socket extender (Riser) would lift the adapter clear of the capacitors.

There problem solved, not quite, I can't find a PGA adaper extender anywhere. Can anyone help please?
Thank you,
Peter.

Hello Apokalipse,
No, just socket 7.
Peter.
