Are you meaning push pin heatsinks? If so, you can but you are right it has less contact with the cpu. Though there is a solution to this. You can buy a bolt through kit from Thermalright.

I hate to sound like a consumerist whore but the obvious solution would be to buy a better cooler.

EDIT: a more constuctive comment from me - Take the screw part apart, and add some washers to make up for the lost height from the heatsink.
