    No, that bracket is too small and will short out capacitors. I have an extra I can sell you

    Sounds good. I'll send to a PM to discuss the details.

    EDIT: Except, I can't start a new PM conversation. Maybe it's rep related, since I'm new in this forum.

    The 5870 heatsink is fine, but you need to remove the screws from it and put the new ones in as they are smaller.
