if you can't fix something with duct tape you
a) don't use enough duct tape
b) use too much duct tape
c) have no idea what you are doing and/or can't improvise that well

Duct tape and cable ties are the only thing for ghetto rigging . I remember when my old socket A heatsink fan broke so i had to cable tie a new one in place and secure it with duct tape lol that was funny . I also remember running out of fan screws screws during a build and using cable ties to secure the fan

you can always use zip ties. put them through the holes in the PCB and just strap it down.
