Default Building a computer help

Hi, i'm building my computer and the part dont seem to be fitting together :S

Scan.co.uk: Asus P8P67 Pro Rev3 Intel P67 Express Socket 1155 Motherboard - P8P67 PRO <Rev.3.0>

Scan.co.uk: Coolermaster V6GT CPU Cooler for LGA775/1155/1156/1366/AM3/AM2+/AM2 - RR-V6GT-22PK-R1

Scan.co.uk: Antec 600 Six Hundred V2 Ultimate Black Computer Case - SIX HUNDRED V2-EU

The brackets to connect the processor cooler to the mobo don't seem to fit.
Have I got the wrong pieces or what?

Thanks, Overload

you don't need to bump your thread. A) it's against forum rules, and B) you just posted this 15 minutes ago.

the parts are compatible, did the CPU cooler come with different mounting brackets? If not you're probably doing it wrong, and some pictures would help us point you in the right direction.

Sorry about that i'm just panicing a bit.

The cooler came with 6 mounts (i'll try and upload pictures in a moment) but they dont seem to line up with the holes on the mobo to screw in...

You didn't line up the notches correctly, looks like the top right is lined up with socket 775 while the bottom left is in the socket 1366 notch. Basically you have to put them right in between the two notches which is the 1156/1155.

All you have to do is to move the back plate down-left by a few millimeters and all the holes will line up.
