When you say it doesn't fit, what do you mean? Do the plugs on the heatsink not match up with the holes on the mobo?
Does it seem as if their is allot of stress on the mobo, as if the mobo is bending a bit when you go to insert one side of the heatsink?
If the holes don't match up and it is a new mobo then you prob got a bad mobo, although thats really rare for the holes to be cut wrong.
If it seems as though the board is bending slightly and is under allot of stress when you go to inset the 2nd side of the heatsink, well that is normal.
Having built more budget machines then I can count, I am hard pressed to remember a single time when a Intel heatsink inserted nice and smooth on a non Intel mobo.
What I would do if I was you, I would make sure the mobo is not installed into the case. Try installing the heatsink on the mobo while it is out of the case and on a completely flat surface (with static protection). The mobo may still bend a bit, and it can be difficult to get the 2nd two plugs into the board, but again its normal as the heatsink is supposed to have an extremely tight fit onto the cpu to ensure excellent heat transferring from the cpu to the heatsink.
You will have to use your own judgement as to what is to much pressure.
When I installed my Thermal Take Golden Orb II heatsink onto my Biostar mobo, it bent the board allot, and I thought for sure it was going to break, but it didn't. It was just a very awkward and extremely tight fit.

On the fan assembly i had, the customer had forced the pins to pull out without twisting them back the way they were to start with, so it ended up that he broke the pins locktabs. So you need to slow down and not force things too much when doing this. He did use a lot of force and was very mad when he called me.
A very good fan assembly i have found is the Zalman 7700 series coolers. The 92MM is not too large and even quieter than the stock intel fan assembly. I can't even hear the one i'm running in a intel 2.4 computer. The case fans drown it out for noise and i'm running the case fans on controllers for lower speed and noise. You can also get a 120 MM but it may not fit inside the case. I had to buy a shorty CD-RW to fit in a 120MM heatsink in a smaller ATX case. Lite-on drives are about 1/2 inch shorter than most others. NEC DVD-RW drives are also shorter than normal drives.
The kits have everything you need to hook them up.
