Are you talking about the fan mounting? If so, all you need are the plastic mounts.

The "plastic things" mount on the fan. (On the fan hub side for push) Use the screws (suppled) to mount the "plastic things" on to the fan. Then use the black rubber with sticky tape side ageist the screws , then push the fan onto the sides of the cooler. (The plastic clips will lock into the cooler side valley's).

Good luck!

Looks like you figured it out so never mind

My friend gave me this it wasnt brand new.

Hi oomaliko, for the mounting of the fans. It should of come with a plastic 'bit' to mount it fans with.

You screw the plastic bracket onto your fan and then you attach it onto heat sink.

If you dont have those brackets, You can just use zipties or something.
