I have my artic freezer 43 duo i was installing until when I was screwing in the screws it wouldn't work because the backplate would be loose and wasn't compatible so I use these 2 black rectangular that come with with the motherboard I used it to tighten it and it ends up touching the cpu but I'm worried that it won't work and may make my temps go up should i get a new cooler or just keep it? (I don't have my gpu yet so I can't test the temps)

Yeah I've watched many tutorial videos and spent almost 3 hours and I think the cooler may not be compatible with mine since the backplate is not supported
