So I thought this was a Noctua coolerike this first pic but instead is has 4 socket bolts around it and it's bigger then standard 5.5 that's in my I fixit kit. Guessing I'll have to find a long thin socket set it has groove in the cooler for accessing the bolts.

I'm confused what is going on in the pictures. I have an NH-U12DO for G34. The heatsink in the 2nd pic definitely isn't it. I'm pretty sure that is a Hyper 212.

I agree with Lowfat. It also looks like the thumb screws were replaced with a nyloc nut.

Looks like someone made their own brackets, and then used parts of the Hyper212 mounting kit (the silver "X" part, and the heatsink itself), and then bolted it to their custom cut bracket (white part) to make it work. That's janky, but looks like it works. I've done worse ;)

Yea 1/4" socket set on a nice long thin extension would work. Probably a 8mm or 5/16" nut I'd assume

Pretty sure it is this. Although the pics don't work. There are links to the materials used. I remembered this from back in the day. There were almost no G34 heatsinks available.
