I bought a Gigabyte 970A D3P and with an AMD fx-6300. My cousin gave me his old CPU cooler which is a Cooler Master V8. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong or if it just doesn't fit the motherboard. Can somebody please tell me what's up? It would be much appreciated!
Did he give you the additional set of mounting kits? There are Intel brackets and there are AMD brackets and they don't fit each other. If he had it on an Intel CPU, chances are that he gave it to you with the Intel mount still on.
