Gigabyte motherboard

Hi
I have a gigabyte motherboard GA-M61DME-S2. This mother board became
quickly defective in as much, the plastic holder that keeps the CPU
fan on broke. Can I get a replacement or is the motherboard knackered.
This is stupid that the holder can not support a fan, and it was a
normal one supplied with an intel 4.2G processor, not a heavy duty
one.

Desmond.

Take it back to the store for warranty. I think Gigabyte offer at least
a one year warranty.

Do you mean, like this GA-M61SME-S2 AM2 motherboard ?

Did you use a three-tab cooler, on a one-tab plastic
retention frame ? The Arctic Cooling heatsinks like
to bust off the plastic - I would blame it on Arctic
Cooling, rather than the company that made the plastic.
I bet there are other heatsinks that don't fall off.

Replacement plastic frames are available. They come in
different styles, so you have to look them over
carefully.
