I would use thermal epoxy if you have it, otherwise you can use thermal compound with some super glue.

I use high quality 5 minutes epoxy (Araldite brand) and a small but tall heatsink (1cm X 1cm X 5cm). Epoxied both parts, and let it cure for 24 hours. Be carefull with Artic Allumina Epoxy, it may have conductive agents inside.

To test: If it warm or slightly hot, that means is working. Overclocking power remain the same.
