hello, my father got my old computer now that i bought my new one.
his comp is a pentium4 1.5Ghz 423pin. the HeatSInk there got broken (the fan to be exact) and he lost the screws of it too.
i havent found any shop (in my country atleast) that sells a heatsink that fits 423pin socket, so my question to u is if the intel 478pin heatsink which comes with all the new cpu's, will fit in there.

No, they don't fit, but those for s603-604 Xeons do, so if you can find one of those you're set :)
