Hi, there r a couple of options for u. First u can try to bend back the fins using pliers. If that doesn't work, then u can try ebay for a replacement. A custom heat sink can only be accommodated by cutting the hole for the heat sink to sit. However, u can do a fan mod. There's loads of videos on how to do it. Write back on what u did. Good luck.
