Custom mounting heatsink

Hi guys. I want to change my crappy Deepcool cooler for 1090t and I found an old used heatsink for sale, link here: https://www.kupujemprodajem.com/Komp...r_id=110419535 .

Now I was planning to add 2x120mm fans, on each side of it.

The problem: the guy selling it doesn't have its mounting parts, so I can't mount it off the bat. Any ideas with thinking up a custom way to mount it would be largely appreciated, thanks.

There is no reasonable way to mount that with whats pictured and nothing else. Move on to a different heatsink, this one isn't going to work.

Mounting that cooler on a GPU is problematic many reasons including it's base size vs 1090t die, size of cooler as well as it's weight. How much does it actually weight? Your 1090t will have 4 holes for mounting. You can measure them and making mounting plate/s. Matt's custom cooler mount in his custom built case that is as quiet as a heartbeat gives basics of making a GPU cooler mount for CPU coolers in link below.

The 1090t he is referring to is an older AMD AM3 CPU.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Now that you mention it I remember them. IIRC it's an AM3 mount. Probably easier to find a mount somewhere and modify as needed to hold cooler onto CPU.
