Desperately need a cpu clip for a 478 chipset
I'm really hoping someone in Toronto will be able to help me out. I had to buy a new board for an old computer I was working on (don't ask, everything has been going wrong). I bought this... Canada Computers - Motherboards > Socket 478 : BIOSTAR P4M900-M4 Socket 478 VIA P4M900 / VT8237A Chipset Integrated VIA Chrome9 HC IGP Graphics DDR2 533/667Mhz PCI-Express x16 Mirco ATX.

But it doesn't come with a cpu cooler or holding mechanism for it. I basically have everything but that specific style and that was the only board in stock. I'm working on a computer for a neighbour, originally just to add a wireless card so they could leach of me (they can't afford internet etc) and I really need to find this piece as I need to get it done this weekend.

Please help!

I've have one with a heatsink.

Let me go digging for it

Best bet is to start randomly calling small computer shops. A lot of times they will have stuff like this floating around.

Found it.

Pay for shipping and it's yours. Or local pickup. (Burlington Ontario)

Jetone: Thanks. Too bad you are in Hamilton though. Of course I could always take a road trip if need be.

enaberif: Yeah, unfortunately most of those will be closed shortly and not open tomorrow.

Damnit, now I need a 24pin powersupply and all I have are a couple of 20pin ones haha. This is turning out to be the repair from hell.

PM me if you decide otherwise.

Wow, that was quick Jetone! Just to make sure that's the one with 4 plastic clips that snap into place and then you pull the 2 levers to secure it?

Thanks guys, I ended up finding one thankfully. I should really be more organized :)
