Ah, good luck.

A while back I drilled a couple of holes in my old TNT2 heatsink, and used it to replace the annoyingly loud chipset fan. It actually worked quite well too.

But I'm guessing that your chipset runs fairly hot, hence the large heatsink. Hm... Maybe just drill the holes through from the flat side of the heatsink, and hopefully you can drill through some fins, so they will break off easily, and leave you some room for the pushpins or screws.

But eh... why not just buy something like this?
