    CPU Waterblock Mounting Help

    Hi,
    I just got 2 CPU waterblocks:




    I have never used water cooling before but I have researched it. But how the hell do I mount these CPU blocks ? I only need one, and only one came with barbs fitted, but how do I mount it ? As you can see, it has no screw holes, the 4 bits in the corners are just alan key slots which are about 2 mm deep, and look like they are just part of holding the bloack togethor.
    I need to fit a AMD 3 hook style mounting on one of these somehow, as I don't have mounting holes on my mobo , but that aside how do I mount it ?

    They are these blocks:

    any input would be appreciated

    thanks alot

    any chance of making those pictures a bit smaller? they are about 400k each heh, but i think you will either have to fashion a holddown clip of your own, or see if the company which made the waterblocks make one - you could contact the meetthegeeks people and see how they managed to use it?

    you could be a bit mad and use epoxy but not all are as stupid as me i guess.

    There is a hold down for these on the net somewhere
