You could try using zip ties to hold the block in place. That is how I use to ghetto rig CPU blocks back in the day. VRM sinks are a good idea. You can even get away w/ rather small ones as long as you have good airflow over them. I suggest trying to find some good thermal tape to use w/ the sinks. The stuff that usually comes w/ the sinks sucks. They tend to fall off easily. NCIX has 3M stuff . You can find at DC or BestDirect for $0.75, so definitely price match it.
