Fix the motherboard heatsink with superglue

I opened the dead computer case today to find a motherboard heatsink clip had pulled loose from the motherboard.  I pushed the clips back in very deep and applied some very thin liquid superglue and let it dry for 10 minutes.  I then swabbed up the reminder of the glue to prevent any shorts since superglue could possibly be conductive.  I then cleaned the heatsink and chipset and clamped the heatsink clips back down.  It worked like a charm.
