    Help i need Socket 478 brace

    Hi guys, does anybody know where i can get a Socket 478 Brace, you know that black barce on the mobo where the cooler is usually placed. I did sumfin stupid with my one, i bought a new cooler and with the new cooler i need to remove that black brace, well i got excited then i just cutted off the clip at the back, then i just realized that my old cooler is better than the new one. It made the temp worst...
    and also any suggestion with coolers.. here's the details of my old one and my new one...

    NEW --- Asus Star Ice 4-in-1 Cooler
    49C with nothing runnin, just the OS
    59C with [email protected] runnin
    i dont know if i just missed something with the installation that caused the temp to rise though :confused:

    OLD --- Coolermaster JET 4 P4 CPU Cooler
    35c --- 41c without anythin runnin but just th OS
    51c ---55c with [email protected] runnin

    I'm not familiar with the UK shops, but the local PC shops in my area have a few P4 S478 retention frames on hand. Not sure of the price, but they run under $10 USD.
