Default Is this a good fan?

Ok, Ive had it with my northbridge problem so Im finally going to solve it. Hmmph ! I did buy this fan
but since there are no clamps, just some stock adhesive (which is often cited as being crap) the only way to seem to keep this thing fixed is with thermal adhesive, which might be bad since it is permanent, and which I have not used, yet-- if that fan fails and it's stuck with permanent adhesive Im not sure what I could do? So I was thinking about getting this one, but it is quite expensive and Id like to know if yous think it is worth it?
These northbridge fans/heatsinks are very hard to find at major retailers and I just want to get this resolved reliably and reasonably soon.
