Okay so my brother has a thermaltake v1 HS, and as you may know he has a lga 775 socket with those dumb plastic pushpins that clip into the mobo. Long story short, I broke two of them and am looking for a replacement (or alternative pins) Bracket /w pins (or Pins if they are even removable, I don't think i can) I was looking at these:
I will include email i sent thermaltake.

(not sure how these would work with the v1

I don't think that i can replace the pins inside the bracket

THESE NEXT TWO ARE THE CLOSEST THING I CAN THINK WOULD WORK

(I guess these would be the same as the other pins huh)

And this is what the brackets look like that's attached to the HS

Here is what i sent to thermaltake if it help..
Code:
LGA 775

Hello, First off my hardware is your "Thermaltake V1" Heat-sink. 
My problem is that I broke two of the push-pins that connect the heat-sink. 
I can't use the heat-sink like this. I want to buy replacement parts. 
i see you have a lga775 bracket for another model of heat-sink. 
And push pin replacments for another specific model.

I will be including the replacment components that im talking about and you can tell me if they will work.

Also another important question i need answered is; 
Can i remove the pushpins from the metal bracket? 
They don't seem to want to come out.

These are the products im talking about:
-----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------
THIS IS THE LGA 775 BRACKET FOR ANOTHER MODEL, ALTHOUGH IT LOOKS VERY SIMILAR TO MY BRACKET.

THE NEXT ITEM I THINK MIGHT WORK, THAT IS IF PIN CAN BE REMOVED AND REPLACED:

hate to be the arse to tell you this but... it's a crappy cooler on an out of date chip biggrin.gif might want to just buy a brand new hyper212 or something and be done with it smile.gif at least the 212 can be transplanted to your next build when the 775 chip or mobo finally kicks the bucket biggrin.gif

Yeah but does it hold enough pressure to make the TIM heat transfer work well enough so it doesn't overheat? He's been kind of an a hole so what do you think a good 20 dollar HS wouldbe:rolleyes:
