Well, the most difficult part would be mounting them. Because, you don't have holes in your motherboard for mounting. I suppose you could use a thermally conductive adhesive or past and attach small heatsinks to each module.

Here you go, go wild

But, for real, both the Amazon and the ModMyMods link should have heatsinks that will work. Most of those small ones will fit on each VRM module, but you will need a way to affix them to it.

DIY some heatsinks using Raspberry Pi CPU heatsinks, some acrylic (or 3d printing), and some paint.
