    Are you saying the clip doesn't fit the bracket already mounted on the motherboard? Or are you saying you're trying to mount the bracket that comes with the cooler, because AFAIK that bracket is for socket 775 motherboards!


    ther'es a mounting guide here...

    Yep the bracket is a S775 fitting only.

    You only need the metal clips for AMD fitting

    I'd start by dropping an email to Gigabyte's customer support and see if they can supply you with one.
