Need help with my Zalman CNPS10X Extreme

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello and thanks for considering to help me out with my problem, which is:
the plastic thats going on top of motherboard, around the CPU, called Socket 1156/775 Clip Support has wore out, and I can tighten only 2/2 screws when placing the gigantic cooler.
Luckily they are diagonal so my 4670k is somehow still being cooled, but not properly.

So to shorten my story, I looked over at ebay but couldn't find a new one to replace it (the clip support).
Anyone got one of those collecting dust willing to part from it?
Any suggestions?

EDIT:
I just wanted to add that I sent an email to Zalman support last night, describing my situation, and haven't received a reply yet.

hmm I do have a piece that looks awfully similar to that from my cnps 9700 based on google search... can you get a picture of the bracket close up?

Hey thanks for your time.
The left one is the one I need (plastic).

Do you need me to get a better picture?

2nd EDIT:
I have found this on ebay:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Zalman-ZM-CS4A-Socket-1366-Clip-Support-Kit-for-CNPS9500-9700-/290957604275?pt=UK_Computing_Fan_Heatsink_Brackets_Accessories&hash=item43be6cb5b3

This type is the one I need, but it should be 775/1155, not 1366.
