I'm sure there's some on this huge forum. Try searching for them smile.gif Found one on how to make Mehahalem fan clips.

If not just try rubber bands or zip ties biggrin.gif

are you wanting to hold the heatsink to the cpu, or fan on the heatsink?

zip ties are great for holding fans to heatsinks
just string 2 together and put them through the fan mounting holes and around the heatsink

i wouldnt use rubber bands, after a few days/weeks they will become brittle from the heat

Guess you're right on the rubber band part. I think i've seen to many of them on overclocking rigs that it got stuck in my head doh.gif

the 212+ comes with 2 sets of fan clips
older style had wire clips, newer ones have plastic clips

it will be tougher to use zip ties, but not impossible

feed the thin end through the heatsink and put a cap on fan mount holes
kinda like this
