Default 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!

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

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.

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?
