Northbridge HS Broken off on Abit BH-7

I can run basic apps and 8 year old games on my computer without the heatsink, but if i try anything more "advanced" it will heat up quickly.

I dont know how it happened, but i needed to lock my case and i discovered that the hooks on the mobo through which the clip held on the heatsink had broken off, the the sink is now on top of my vidcard, still in my case.

can someone please recomend a quality replacement for the brokenoff heatsink that does not need the "clip" to attach.

If you have the room, an old socket 7 HSF held on with some thermal adheasive will work great.

i dont have one of those handy right now.
so which would work better, a big heatsink with no fan, or one of those small HSF combonations that come on most new boards?

If you have good case airflow then I would go with a large passive heatsink. But it would have to be big. Likeon the board in the pic below. And if it gets too hot you can always rig up a fan to blow on it.

that copper one witht he fan also come with two other heatsinks wich i have no need for.

Would a thermaltake crystal orb be a sufficient replacement?

I have to agree with robbie that the Vantec ICEBERQ CCB-A1C is excellent. It fits both 54mm and 59mm mounts. I haven't seen a Abit BH-7 and I suggest you measure the mounting holes first.

For me it isn't always a good idea to use thermal adhesives 'coz once you put it on, there's no getting it off without doing some extreme things with it. You'll be better off with the good old push pin coolers.

Thermaltake Crystal Orb (I've worked with both) is for 54mm only and costs bout the same. Iceberq is the most flexible cooler out there for this type of situations. Just keep the two extra heatsinks as an extra (for free ). You really can't beat this deal.

You could put the extra HS on your south bridge chip if you like.

well, it appears that i dont have mounting holes on my board, the adhesive was the only choice.
just a few pics of what the problem was and how i fixed it:

Nice work RussianMissile1 I see your crystal orb just cleared the CPU Heatsink but it's a good fit just the same.

Nice job!
