Well I messed up and bought a cooler master V8 CPU cooler for my 1150 Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H build. Is there anything I can buy to install it on my motherboard?

Not quite sure, but when I screwed the brackets on to the cooler and placed it over the motherboard the holes did not line up

The hole spacing for all Intel 5, 6, 7, and 8 series chipsets is the same. There are only some minor compatibility issues with X79 motherboards due to the lack of a reference cooler and many motherboards having built in backplates. All LGA1156, LGA1155, and LGA1150 sockets are identical as far as cooling is concerned. The holes should line up.

On Sunday I will have time to try putting the brackets on and seeing if maybe I made a dumb mistake the first time around. Especially based on what you said.
