:) thats what i'm aiming for. and thanks for not laughing and going "omg what a n00b"

 

i think its a heatsink bracket. it goes into the mobo and it keeps the fan in place. the fan that i have is the one that came with the retail amd 64 2800+. and i have this mobo

i have JUST the mobo

r those any good? or should i just get a new 1? but i'm soo broke after buying everything, id prefer to use this until i cna save up for more ram and then a water cooling system

hmm...that board's not the best, but it will do. For now. unfortunately i don't believe that you'll be doing any overclocking.

 

so in other words, if you can't afford anything else, it'd atleast be worth it to go ahead and get a RETAIL cpu, so it comes with a heatsink and heatsink bracket. and then once you get some more money, sell that board you currently have, and get a better one.

I can't find it now, but if you search the web you can find a heatsink bracket and buy it sep. When I bought my Thermalrightxp120 it came with alternate bracket. So if you can spend a few bucks, you might as well buy a better heatsink and get the bracket at the same time.
