Try contacting iFixt directly if no one else pops up with the part.

i did try this road already


Then purchasing a dead (for parts only) machine from e-bay is your only hope. You might be able to negotiate with a seller for only that part-if not get the offered machine and part out the remaining good parts.

If the heat sink is loose, and if a thin coat of thermal paste is missing those could be the causes of your overheating.

You could try contacting iFixit directly to see if they have the part.
