Need help installing CPU Cooler

Motherboard: MSI 970 Gaming

CPU: AMD fx 8350

CPU Cooler: AMD Wraith Stealth

 

I believe I have all the necessary brackets. However, some parts don't seem to align and I do not want to go any further in order not to damage it.

If someone would be willing to videochat or share advice in any other way, it would be highly appreciated.

The Wraith Stealth (AM4 edition) has different mounting hole positions than AM3. AMD changed it up slightly.

As such, you won't be able to install it.

as @FakeKGBsaid, the wraith stealth is not compatible with that CPU/Mobo, you need to purchase a new cooler. I recommend the Be Quiet! BK008 Pure Rock Slim, which is $25 on amazon in US

Because I'm buying everything on second hand markets, the person with Gelid GX-7 never replied again.

Now I received the Cooler Master Hyper 412S. Trying to figure out how and which the screws go in around the cpu socket.

 

Thank you everyone for the help.
