At this point I think that you would be better using the stock one than trying to make the other cooler compatible. Maybe build the computer with the stock heatsink amd then look at your cpu temperature to decide if you need a better cooler? You can always remove the stock one and replace it with a better cooler later. Maybe they'll let you return the other one. Especially if you say it wasn't opened or used.

As someone wrote in a different forum... "if you have played with legos you can put a computer together." Haha. But seriously it isn't very hard at all. You just have to be careful with some of the more fragile components like the cpu. Not a big deal at all and you get the satisfaction of building your own machine that fits you perfectly while saving some money. Take a look at those videos (specifically part 2) and it will put your mind at ease.
