Hey guys,

I'll kick off by saying I'm using a B660M-A DDR4 motherboard and the deep cool gammaxx l240 AIO.

Now I'm having difficulty with this damn backplate. I'm aware that you do need a LGA 1700 mounting bracket and was under the impression this is one.

Please see the photos for reference but I just can't seem to line the holes up, seems at max I can get is two pins through. Would this be secure enough for the AIO on top of the CPU?

I did manage to get all 4 through but it took a bit of force and the angles once it comes through the motherboard holes was all over the place

Any help would be really appreciated, if I can just secure it with two screws then that should be okay right?

No, it's not right. If you have used right kit and parts, all for points should be secured, AIO blocks need a lot of pressure and hoses may pull it askew.

Deepcool is offering a lga1700 mounting kit for free:

The kit is important for proper cooling.
As you have found, the lga1700 mounting holes are spaced wider.
But, the lga1700 processors are also a bit thinner so compensation needs to be made to get the proper mounting pressure.

Your two screw hold down fix is probably ok for running, temporarily, but I would get the kit asap.
