I have the heatsink as well, its sadly not pictured. i was gonna sell the processor mobo and fan together for the price listed, i could just sell the heatsink, though it might make selling the other stuff more difficult....but if ya wanted some extra parts....ill let em go as a package cheap!

I have something that bolts down to a S478 board, but it was originally bolted to the tray on the OEM case. Would that work for you?
