I'm sure the motherboard manufacturer would be glad to give you a replacement.

I sent gigabyte an inquiry about getting a replacement piece, but they usually take a while to respond.

Beware, aftermarket heatsinks will void your warranty! Get another plastic pin from a different motherboard OR contact manufacturer and get one.
