    OK, so I've had a bad day. I put too much pressure on my CPU fan lugs and snapped the centre mounting lug on the side without the flat bit. Does anyone know of any fairly light CPU HSF's that have the ability to attach to the offset lug?

    think the taisol range uses all three lugs, but i dunno how well it would work.

    yeah, I would go with the Taisol 760, it is light and will use your one remaining lug. I would worry about uneven pressure on the core a little bit, you may not get ideal cooling but you don't have many choices ... bummer

    I would attach the heatsink from the taisol and use the fan holder for a zalman flower. --should cut down on weight/vibration.

    what you could do, is , use an elastic put it between the heatsink an try it to attach to something, like does condesators, this could hold it,

    ya, i dont see any reason why you could not fix that with the right super glue....i have glued stuff together that size, that have held much more force than what the heatsink clamp will put on it....

    what you need is a good Cyanoacrylate glue....go with the thin stuff...the thicker stuff is easier to work with, but the thin will give you the best bond.......get it at your local/online hobby shop.

    Oh come on! Rodney, as in 'Only Fools and Horses'! It's just a catch phrase.
