    Hi, when I upgraded from an Epox 9NDA3J to an Asus A8N-E I used my Thermalright XP-120 heatsink, and also removed and used the retention bracket for it off my Epox.

    Unfortunately, I no longer have a retention bracket for my Epox motherboard, I have the backplate but no screws or bracket.

    I was wondering, do new heatsinks come with different socket retention brackets? or will I have to try and buy one from somewhere???

    Edit - Actually, just found the old one off the Asus, but the two screws I have are too short to attach the bracket to the back plate on my Epox, was wondering if anyone had any ideas on what I could do?
