Default CPU Heat sink

I have a system here that the plastic push pull pins are so cheap that they brake the little tabs and just won,t stay seated!!!

The MB is a 775i65g duel channel etc etc ,
A cheap MB huh ?
This is my wifes sytem and she really like to play pogo etc etc and i would like to get it goign for her !

That all being said whats a good permanant heat sink that will do this MB ?
I want it to have a back plate and be solid !
Also whats good tim for this or does enuff come with a new heat sink?

Well it doesn't sound like you're doing anything intensive on the mobo so you're not going to need anything heavy duty.
Cheapest HSF that looks decent I can find is this
NCIX.com - Buy Silverstone NT07-775 Nitrogon LGA775 15-23DBA Heatsink Fan - NT07-775 In Canada.
you can also buy a bolt thru kit to get rid of those pins.
NCIX.com - Buy Thermalright LGA775 BOLT-THRU Kit for Ultra 90/120 & HR-01 Retail Box - BTK-LGA775R In Canada.
I would also get some Arctic Cooling MX-2 to use as your tim, that seems to be the best stuff these days.
Push pins should be fine for a stock hsf. They're a pain, but once they get seated it shouldn't be a problem.
However these seem to be the cheapest alternatives.

This is decently priced and it preforms quite well in "normal" conditions:
Thermaltake RSI Socket 775 Aluminum CPU Cooling Fan CL-P0441 in Canada at TigerDirect.ca

I agree with Max, Arctic Cooling MX-2 is the good stuff ...
