    Help please! CPU cooler replacement - no retention module

    I have a computer with a DFI Lanparty UT NF3 250Gb motherboard and a faulty Arctic Cooling Silencer 64 TC. The CPU fan only spins ocassionally and doesn't spin when the computer gets hot.

    I need to replace the HSF but the current HSF is screwed into two points on the motherboard. I have just purchased a Freezer 64 Pro but this requires fitting to an AMD retention module, which I do not have. Any idea where I can get one or whether I can get a HSF than is compatible with the motherboard mounting system I have.

    Thanks in advance.
