Hi, I am repairing an old Compaq Presario 6450NX with an MS-6577 motherboard with a Pentium 4 installed in a 478 socket. However, the plastic heat sink retaining bracket that is screwed into the motherboard is broken.
I haven't replaced a heat sink before. Can I buy essentially any Socket 478-compatible heat sink? Is there anything else I need to take into consideration before buying one?
Thanks! I appreciate you taking the time to look at and/or reply to such a basic question!
