Never seen that done before. Wouldn't that be broken then? If you can't reglue, you may have to get a new one.

It's called the IHS, he has exposed the cpu core, you can mount a heatsink on it, just dont overtighten or you'll crush the core.

with the core being exposed, would the need for a thermal conductor (grease, paste or pad) become non existent...?

also, has anyone on this site tried these...?

You'll still need to use thermal paste even when the IHS is removed. Many people remove it to get a direct contact between the core and HSF for better cooling while overclocking.

Watch that stuff eat through aluminum before your eyes. It will also ruin copper over time. So no, don't use it. And removing the IHS is only beneficial if the IHS is really warped. And your friend has just voided his warranty. If it is an LGA processor, chances are he already ruined his core. If it is a recent AMD, chances are he also ruined his core as they are all soldered to the IHS and you need a high heat source to get the solder to melt.

maybe get a new fan?

also when i got my pentd 925 on the bottom of the fan/heatsink it had a pad of thermal grease so i guess it was supposed to melt on...well before on the first trial runs the fan wasnt fully touching so that caused overheating and the cpu to shut down...so we did it over and it worked GREAT!

but yeh man try a new fan maybe!

there is no harm putting thermal grease/paste on the CPU pad.
