Centris 650 heatsink clip dimensions, looking to model replacement to 3d print

I am looking for the dimensions for the bracket that holds the heatsink for a Centris 650. It is label 830-0115. I want to model and 3d print a replacement that includes a small fan mount. Googling that number didn't help. I plan to use Polycarbonate(PC) for printing so should hold up to the heat.

I've had a mixed bag between Centris and Quadra 650 heatsinks... do you mean the super beefy heatsink, where the bracket clips to the CPU socket? (like the 700/800/9x0)

Or this jobbie with the clip snaps onto the CPU ceramic?

I have both and could measure either for you this weekend.

I also have a 40mm fan mount bracket I can upload (I hadn't gotten around to plopping it into the 3D printed objects thread...) meant for the beefier heatsink, but it could adapted however. I know this image doesn't illustrate it well, but it's designed to fit between the heatsink fins.

Actually both, I was planning on moving the heavier heatsink from a Centris 650 to a Quadra 650 with the other heatsink. I was examining also looking at using this. I was asking because even using caliper I always screw something out. You should have seen how many revsions it took me to design a simple case for a wombat adb <-> usb adapter.

Thanks for the stl.

Oh, I completely neglected to mention: the mount is mostly meant for the Noctua 40mm NF-A4x10 FLX and the rubber "pop-rivet" rubber mount solution they come with. (sorry I don't know the proper name off-hand)

There were some spots of hot glue left (I originally wanted this for a Q700) which didn't do too much. I didn't have much issue with the heatsink staying in place, really. Not like I'm taking the thing on a Jeep trail...

The tolerance for the heavier heatsink clip is ...tight. I actually don't like how much pressure it puts on it, to be honest.

Sometimes I get lucky and it fits first time around. Most times, not so much... I think I did 6 or 7 versions of the Quadra 700 foot. Probably 4 revisions of a simple HDD bracket. My 3D printer is out of commission at the moment, so I can't really do my normal round of test fits : / otherwise I'd work up a replacement. Maybe I'll work up the motivation to get it back together tomorrow.

Crazy, but I went through the same thing with mine before I sold it. I wasn't happy with the final result, but it was something other than cardboard : P

I was examining also looking at using this.
I would also have a look at Wakefield-Vette's catalog for IC cooling. They have 1:1 matches for PPC cooling, which I purchased for my 4400/StarMax machines. There might be something in there that could work for the 040 PGA dimensions. I haven't looked too hard myself. Outlets like Mouser and DigiKey are WV resellers.
