well if you really wanted to... you could take them off then sit them right again.. you need some thermal adhesive though. i would wait and try it first.. see if you have any problems

would it affect overclocking?

would reseating them affect overclocking?
no... if you do it right. make sure it makes complete contact with it... get some good themal adhesive... not thermal compound... thermal adhesive

Or the various kinds of thermal tape.. that works well so im told. Less messy than adhesive (which arctic silver do)

noo.. if you use grease the sinks wont stay one... just go to your local pcclub or compusa and pick up some thermal adhesive tape(like he suggested) or paste... you can always order online too
