    When removing the little white things that hold the heatsink through the main board, they popped off as it was coming out. Now they are flush and have no little nubs. The heatsink won't stay on the processor at this point. Do you know where I can find replacement white holder-downer thingies? Thanks.

    Most people use 4/40 nylon screws and nuts. Can be found at local hardware stores. Some guy on eBay is selling sets for $8 shipped - search for "Apple Mac Mini Intel Heat Sink Screws Nuts Nylon 4/40"
