    I just happened on this post with no answer and the reason that no one has commented is that it is probably the first case I have seen of one of these snapping. It is used when mounting a factory heatsink of an AMD cpu. Otherwise they have to be removed to install most after-market CPU heatsinks , as was the case with me. I removed and stowed them in the box which will probably end up going to the trash eventually.

    I would suppose the one offered at Amazon will fit so go for it and remember that most things attached to a motherboard come out without force....or you end up breaking them.

    Thanks for the reply Papang! I'll order one of those parts and try it out. I was surprised by how much weight there is on the heatsink I have right now. Just glad the PC was off when it came loose.
