Some AM2 systems used side-by-side slots for dual-channel. Could be mistaken though, but he has them in the same colours.

Be careful with super glue, I've noticed that it will degrade over time especially in hot environments like in a PC, it gets brittle and eventually lets go. Wouldn't want that fan to let go and decapitate some unlucky component .

Should not be a problem then, it takes months for it to degrade.
