Hi,
I was switching my stock HS/FN out of my Asus A7M board when I saw my center tab to hold the heatsink down was broken off a little. When I tried to install my Gladiator there wasn't enough tab to hold it down. The stock one went back on okay. Any suggeations that won't void my warrenty? Also is there a heat sink that only used the outside two tabs and not the center one?

Thanks,

B.

The Taisol CGK-760092 and 740092 use all three on each side. Paired up with the right fan, either does a good job. The 760092 is a tad better.

There is a socket with dip switchs for boards that can't adjust multipliers and voltage. It plugs into a Socket A and will give you a fresh set of Zif tabs.
