I have a GTX470 GPU. I need to change the heatsink as the fans are dying out on my old one. I bought a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168.... I tried to mount it, but it seems its built for a smaller GPU and the screw holes don't line up. Is there some way I can mount this heatsink with some sort of hardware, or was this just me being dumb and I need to buy a different heatsink. If the latter is true, which heatsink will work :/ ?

Thanks

That link you have provided doesnt work.
If the holes dont line up and you cannot change the orentation you will need to purchase a new one. Best recommendation is to measure the opposite holes distance and look for that on the new one

You could just replace the fans, that would be less expensive.
