So I started building a new PC for my dad using old parts, and ran into a problem. I previously had a AM3+ socket mount for a Corsair Hydro series put onto the motherboard.

Instead of that one, I got a Noctua NH-U9S CPU cooler instead that doesn't fit into it, so I need to find another one. Anyone who can give me advice on what to get for it?

Thanks in advance.

Does spacing of holes on the cooler mount fit in holes on the MB ?
Yes the mount fits the holes, but the screws can't get screwed into the intakes, because the way the screw turns is too fine. I'm not sure what it's called in english, but it's not the thickness of the screw, but rather the turning part of it that is too wide and rough for the intake to fit.
 
Screws' PITCH. U simply must get proper screws.

Can't u just re-use the old screws? if too long, cut them, if too short, take your old one to the hardware store and tell the clerk, THIS IN X LENGTH.
