Is there an adapter or something that I can get to fit over the contact (the part that contacts the cpu) to replace the existing bracket?

Unable to load pictures at the moment; my computer is in pieces.
I can describe for the moment, if that doesn't work no big deal, I can wait as I have fit the heatsink that came with the cpu on for now.
The liquid system does not have a brand name as far as I could see. So it must be alienware or something like that. I'm not certain, but I believe it's socket 755... I just assumed that the heat sinks were all the same connection.
The copper that contacts the cpu is separate from the fastener that attaches to the motherboard. I was hoping there would be a spot (which I have not found yet) that has these fasteners.
Once I get my pc up and running I can upload pics, but for now... hopefully that helps you enough to help me.

On a previous note, you can do a fresh install with the upgrade edition of Windows 7. Google will give you many how-to guides.

It sounds to me what is being described is the screw downs for the fan to the motherboard.

The fan that mounts over this assembly has "412 FH", "PAPST" and "0012675R1"

Is there a way to load pictures to the site with my iPhone?

I will post pictures of the bracket tomorrow, in the meantime, any advice on where to go or what to do to make the other drives show would be super.

For the CPU Cooler, you will need to have a bracket that suits your exact cooler to fit the exact motherboard socket that you have.

I had issues with iTunes for example. I was trying to do it quickly so I could load my pictures to my computer from my phone and put them on here (which I have now done.)
For anyone with iTunes who has moved their media and then attempted to reconnect iTunes with their songs (there is obviously the iTunes way to do it explained everywhere, then there is my way (explained somewhere maybe... but I couldn't find it.))
I had my music in the my music folder - iTunes likes that
I moved my music to a separate drive. Upgraded my computer (as per previous posts)
Installed Windows on small SSDrive.
Did not have room to put files in Music directory.
Changed "Libraries" location to my drive H
Opened iTunes and confirmed iTunes target folder (Edit - Preferences - Advanced - iTunes Media folder location) was same location
Took my iTunes folder from the previous computer and pasted it over the target folder (with iTunes closed.)
Opened iTunes, had all my stuff back to normal.
Now back to the liquid cooling.
I took a picture of my bracket and the contact. It looks so similar to what I have on there, it just will not fit no matter the sweat I produce.
Have a look at the attached and let me know if you have any thoughts on ways to secure this onto my CPU. Thanks for everything so far, and now that I have my cor components on my PC working again, I should be responding faster.
There is a picture with the units together that shows how it mounts (when it clamps on the brass straightens.

This is going to silence my 120 mm fan again
Thanks for the help!
