Yes, but...
...been modding N &/or S bridge chipsets on regular boards for decades. No need to buy them, strip them from old kit + hacksaw to fit.
Don't use those sticky pads - the alleged cause of boot anomalies on the K2S7A boards, nor that nasty pink phase-change junk. Make your own adhesive/contacting compound from a dab of Qikset Araldite mixed with a drip of silver HSF paint. Remember: assembly compound is just that - it fills the nano&micro surface lumps & bumps, so wipe it on, rub it in and wipe it off. Surplus actually reduces its efficacy.
