Hello, I have the helios 500 17.3” PH517-51. And I wanted to replace the heatsink (it got a little bent on it during a repasting accident) any ideas where to get it?

FAQ & Answers
What have you done to the old heatsink? As the Helios 300 so you have to consult Acer and ask them for the part and/or try to repair it. Also, search on the web and see if you can find one, which I don’t like your chances of finding one.
It basically got bent , I bent it back to normal (or some what normal) but there is a “dint” on the heat sink over the cpu side. and it is causing cpu thermals to spike. I did contact acer but I doubt that I would get an answer thats why I asked here.
