I took off my Q6600 heatsink to reapply thermal paste as my temps were really high, then when I tried to put the heatsink back on, 2 of the clips wouldn't snap on properly, and apparently I used excessive force while trying because on one of them the white plastic bits broke off, so its just the black metal bit left. Is there anything I can do or is a new heatsink the only option? Help would be greatly appreciated.

get something aftermarket that has support on the back side and bolts into place.
Many to choose from depends on your budget.
