A friend of mine broke off the tab where the cpu cooling fan connects to the zif , is there any kind of "glue" that can be used to attach the cooling fan directly to cpu.
thanks for the info.

I seem to remember a sticky substance that connected the heat sink to the CPU on an old system I rebuilt (I'm sure it had "special" heat transfer properties). Maybe you could use something like that you also might attempt screwing the fan into the heat sink.

I personally screw the fan into the heatsink.
But, there is glue made for extream temps. I actually got some of it the last time I had to replace a heat sink. Scarry enough, the tube was labeled "Heat Sink Glue." as long as you get some that can withstand very high temperatures, you are all right.

I have used a small drop of super glue on each corner of heat sink
This has now worked for me for more than a year
When using super glue remember that less is better
I hope this helps
