    I had a screw snap off from overtightening on the CPU after a re-paste I did... lol just need to thread out the broken screw or if not possible order a new heatsink for my model, where does one go for that?

    does anyone special in special made heatsink replacements? i'd like to buy one that is better anyway. i know that probably doesn't exist though.

    Clevo P670HS-G is my model number. for now im content with downclocking to 3.3 ghz all 4 cores no downclocking and temps don't break 70 celsius. so guess i should count myself look, could have been worse heh

    Ebay does notmally the trick tho. Other than that you could ask the clevo resellers, which you can find here and here

    I don't know if @woodzstack has some around tho, he might.

    Eurocom typically sells individual parts and upgraded parts for Clevo.

    Maybe try them out. @Eurocom Support

    Thanks you two, I will send out the bat signal to all 3 sources. lol

    i just realized a new heatsink won't matter the though, because the screw that torn off is not on the heatsink, its on the actual mobo itself... crap. ; ;

    It will take some brass spheres, but they make screw extractor sets that *sometimes* work. Basically, you hope to drill a small hole in the screw (ideally you can mill/file a small flat before you try drilling), then use a slightly larger left-handed spiral drill-looking bit in the hole to *hopefully* spin it out.

    Then you need to remove the motherboard x-bracket.

    That is really hard to do.
