AI've got a build that's upsetting and viewer discretion is advised...
The idea is I was going to have a Northwood Unleashed kind of build, with fast DDR2 RAM, a fast GPU and an SSD. But now I'm too scared to stand the PC upright.
Don't be scared by your own monster 😀
Don't give up, you'll get it roaring 😀
This build is impressive!
The monstrous cooler is very Frankensteinish, and this I like 😀
I am optimistic that you'll find a way to mount the cooler using screws, as it seemed to be intended.
Just make sure that the case fan is mounted that way that it blows into the case, not outwards. And maybe mod the PSU fan to run full power, and make sure there are sufficient holes so the airflow will be sufficient.
BTW I also like zip ties, as my 5x86 WIP Frankenstein shows. But I am not sure whether zip ties are good where due to heat the plastic could expand substantially and lead to loose cooler connections..
