So, I broke one of the plastic clips on the mounting bracket for the stock Intel Socket 478 heatsink. Therefore, I need a new cooler. I really don't like the stock heatsink mounting design as I find it difficult to install and remove, and the plastic parts are fragile.
I went on eBay and found this cooler. It's a Foxconn CRSBW model 342291-001. Instead of the plastic clips, it has 4 screws.
Does anyone know if this screws directly into the motherboard, or is there some kind of retention bracket that I need for it?
