Looks like you added too much torque to the screws to remove the threading inserts. You could use epoxy but the heat in the chassis/case can and will degrade the epoxy's adhesive strength and as such will bring you tot he same point you're in now.

Using something like an epoxy is also not a good idea since the liquid epoxy can be absorbed by the motherboard.

You could use a thin shimmy packing tape/foam to add pressure to the center of the cooling assembly so the chassis/case will exert a force to push against the heatsink assembly. Mind you, the solution isn't as sound as having to tighten down the screws.
