If you mean the clip retainers on your ZIF socket then I'm afraid your mobo is scrap. Never mind, you were planning to upgrade anyway weren't you?

Do you mean the metal retaining clip that fits over the heatsink to keep it in place?

all 3 or just the centre one?

ut it together and wedge a chunk of polystyrene between case side and heat sink try not to block fan too much and contact nothing else (this has to be last ditch solution of the week!!)

You can get a heat sink with triple retaining clips,but they are not the cheapest.
