    The plastic bracket that hold the heatsink broke when i tried to remove the
    latch. I've been trying to look for that type of heatsink holder. I look at
    hp site but they don't sell one can anyone help me? or just a easy
    replacement socket 478 CPU cooler that doesn't require taking the motherboard
    out of the case.

  3. Try Newegg.com, they have a good selection of socket 478 heatsinks. I just
    replaced one of mine, too. It's just an easy replacement, no need to take
    the motherboard out (for most of them, anyway!).
