Default Applying 60mm small fans on this?

Alright I ordered two 60mm fans and something just accord to me how the hell am I

Going to get them on those two middle heat sinks on my board shown here?

When they Get here that is. Might as well prepare ahead. Anyways is there a simple way

To do this? Because I don’t see anywhere to put screws so am I screwed?

could use screws, old style heatsinks just had screws that simply fit tightly inbetween each of the little fins.

Other than that I'd find some clever way to mount it using zipties
