    Push-Pins Replacement?

    I want to replace my X58 board VRM Thermal Pads,
    the VRM is fixed by Push-Pins to the board, which im sure some will brake
    on disassembly since it's a 4 year old board.
    and I need to have replacement in hand in-case they will.

    so where can i buy replacements push-pins?

    VRM thermal pad's:


    my DX58SO VRM Unit:

    is it safe to assume they're all standard width & length?

    i had given up looking twice when i finally found that link.

    as to the size being standard, yes would be my best guess.

    i'm thinking you'll be able to salvage the old ones.

    have fun

    U can always try and remove them without breaking. I use a tweezer from my toolkit. Squeeze the hookparts it should work.

    heh lucky me
    that site looks so old but i contact them by email
    see if they contact me back, guess worst case scenario ill cannibalise an old board.

    thank you sir


    Edit: damn they are not replaying & probably out of busyness.
    i guess ill have to try local PC labs maybe ill find something out of dead boards.

    I'll be gentle disassemble them,
    maybe empty Parker pan would evenly squeeze all around at once
    reducing stress on the pin head.

    it's just a backup plan, just in case.
