    my buddy had the same problem. he tdrilled a new hole in the heat sink and threaded fishing wire through it and secured it to the board somewhere, most likely the broken clip that u mentioned. It actually worked.

    you may have fried your processor. try to resecure the hsf, if you can't time for a new motherboard.

    not sure what kind of mobo/cpu you are running but some new hsf's come with new plastic hold down brackets. My XP 90 came with one and so did a big Zalman cnps-7700 I had a while back.

    That's a Soyo board isn't it? 'Nuff said. Never did like 'em. They're kinda like a Yugo GV+ that's riced out, but features luxury components like a DVD player, Alpine Stereo, subwoofers, speakers, GPS etc.

    They feature a ton of extras but are poor performers, and are unreliable.

    Take a word from the wise: If it's a budget build, fuck Soyo, and get a Chaintech. Them and Asus are the most reliable boards I've used, bar none, and they are both feature heavy, blisteringly fast, and exceptionally easy to install, especially the Chaintech's.
