    Adhesive for CPU screw holder?


    The screw place for my CPU came out of my motherboard, does anyone know if there's any adhesive for it so i can glue it back? I'm getting over 95C on my motherboard and CPU because of this.

    Manufacturer is MSI. I'm not sure what you mean about the second part?

    I don't know where that screw place is but for gluing stuff a good epoxy glue is best just make sure it's not metallic. Good makes are Loctite and 3M.

    How long does it take to dry? Also will it melt as its right under the CPU heatsink?

    Its on the motherboard and the screw holder is metallic.

    I'm not sure if screw holder is the correct word for it but its the thing that allows the screw to be screwed in? I'm not sure if i'm making any sense right now..

    Fast Epoxy glue sets in about 5 minutes and is good for temps like that, I used it to glue fans to video cards and they tend to get pretty hot (that's why I added fans to them anyway). You can also use some kind of Crazy Glue but of gel type if there's any space around that holder, it fills better than ordinary. Only problem with it is that's a one shot affair and if you miss by a fraction it will be almost impossible to redo. With Epoxy you have those 5 minutes or so to to correct placement.

    That should do it although you will need only a drop of it so get smallest possible package. If you properly close it after use, it can last long time (have some couple of years old) and use it for gluing other stuff if required, just keep in cool and dark place.

    Note that 5-minute epoxy simply means it "sets" in 5 minutes. It still takes at least 1 hour (up to 24 hours) for it to "cure" to full functional strength.

    That epoxy in your link takes 20 minutes to set which means things can shift out of place if not clamped or held into place (or at least kept totally motionless) while setting. In 25 minutes, it has reached "handling" strength. But according to the technical data sheet it still takes 24 hours for a full cure. So I would glue it, put it down, then come back tomorrow.

    But I am still not fully understanding what screw you are referring to. Do you mean for the CPU socket, or for the CPU's heatsink mounting assembly? The CPU itself does not screw in. Is this for the notebook in your system specs?
