Default Where can I get a pushpin?

Does anyone know where I could get a pushpin / clip / barb for connecting the northbridge heatsink to the motherboard? It is for an Asus P5N32E-SLI motherboard, although I think they are generic.

It is a plastic clip with a spring on.


I've phoned around the PC shops in Ottawa but none carry such a part.

Any ideas?

Might they be similar to the ones found in those very basic&low-end GPU cooler kits?

Thanks for the info.

I spoke to ASUS (which, to my surprise, is pronounced A SOOS, not AySUS as I thought?!) and they are going to post me some free of charge.

Wow really? So I've been pronouncing it right then and everybody else has been wrong. Yay!

Well, were you talking to someone with an accent different from your own?

Now wait a sec, one person says "A SOOS" and another says "A-SUUS". Is the middle bit pronounced like "sue" in "I am going to sue you for malpractice!". Or just "as" such as in "As we went to the doctor's office earlier today." followed by "us" as in "The lawyer agreed to consult with us."?

Ah-Soos just sounds weird to me. I'm going to keep calling them Ay-Sus
