Why Can't I Install This? EVGA CLC 360 AM4

There's no directions in the box worth anything and for whatever reason, I cant figure out how to mount it to the CPU. Ive installed several other brands of AIO before but I cant figure it out. 

The directions say nothing other than "fasten it down with the screws," but Im using the AM4 screws and they seem to not match at all. I cant tell if I need to keep the bracket thing on the board or not either. 

Does anyone have experience with this cooler/socket that can help?

I mean, you are using an AM4 motherboard right?

 

Dumb question but I want to make sure, sometimes these things slip under the radar.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

It does but they are generic for intel and AMD. No pictures or detailed steps. I just stumbled across a different manual online that might help though.

 

EDIT - OK. Im stupid. I got it.
