Heatsink replacement and compatibility

hp g72
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

I have HP G72-259WM laptop ( with heatsink part number 606013-001) and my cooler stopped working,;

the service guy from local IT store wants to charge me a lot for original part ( 606013-001 );

I have another  HP G72-b10em with heatsink part number 606014-001 so I'm wondering can I use that one instead, because they're almost identical phisicaly...

thanx in advance..

Horseshoes and hand grenades are the only things where "close" is good enough. You need the right part.

$10.59....how much is the technician trying to charge you?

I live in Bosnia&Herzegovina,that's full price with taxes, price of the part itself is arround 90 dollars, it seemed too expensive for me ( the price of laptop in question is arround 230 dollars,I have 2, that's why I wanted to use that other  heatsink  and fan...)

 

Thank you very much btw...
