the fan cant clip on as its notch it clips on to is broken off so there for the cpu wont run.

I don't know your specific mobo, but I have replaced one of these with one from a different make/model and it worked fine. Try to find one with a backplate that looks similair to yours and you should be ok.

EDIT Not in the UK, but this seems correct for K8 mobo's:

You should be able to use your existing backplate if that's undamaged.
