Mount CPU cooler without screws - Page 3

post #21 of 25
That idea with the zip-ties is a good suggestion if nothing else works, I will have to remember that one.

Gluing the cooler is not a good idea as the chip was not designed to support the weight of the cooler/fan assembly.

Shuttle uses the BTX form factor for their mounting holes. There isn't any heatsinks that support since BTX was short lived and was never really produced massively outside of OEM systems.

You're going to have to fab up your own mounting.
