I'm trying to mount an old cpu cooler from a refurbished office pc. The cooler was mounted via some screws that went into the case but the new case doesn't have these. What mounting bracket should I buy? Or should I just get a new cooler?
I'm not overly bothered about good temps as the cpu isn't very good and will only be used for light processing. Cheers

This one?

Looks like a fairly standard Socket 1155 motherboard. Depending on your case dimensions, just about any compatible heatsink/cooler will work with it. Some coolers require a back plate, others do not (like those coolers using the Intel push-pin mounts).
Yep that's the one, would something like this do? https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01MSD39CN/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glc_fabc_ZYGHVQ4PQXJD83DZTGZJ
