    Anyone know where I can get one? I have a brand new P4 mobo with one of the tabs broken so the cooling fan/heatsink won't mount correctly. I found one here but there is no "add to cart" button....

    I might be removing my cpu soon to place it & see this as an area where I will have to tread carefully. Did yours break trying to remove the cpu? Any tips?

    If you get stuck you could try using araldite or something similar. On some things it is like it was never broken.

    Found another one over here.

    Try doing a google for "Socket 478 Retention". With quotes.
