Ryzen 1500X+Asrock AB350 PRO4 cannot mount the stock cooler

Hey guys, I am having an issue mounting my stock ryzen cooler to the backplate.

As I have bought refurbished motherboard it came with no backplate, which I have bought from here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/CPU-Motherboard-Bracket-for-AMD-Socket-AM4-Ryzen-Motherboards-Blue-BBMF4/382580751817?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

It has screwable option, however the once I screw in one side, the other side is so far from the screw hole I am unable to screw it in, but I am afraid to use so much power as something is bound to break.

I am attaching images below:

What am I doing wrong here?

  1. I believe the stock backplate bolt holes are closer to the screws than this.I would get some new screws to fit this setup or find another backplate.
  2. With the added on screws to reach the stock cooler the cooler is not tight enough and the CPU reaches 90 degrees over max. 10 minutes of time, so that's a no go.

    Is there any other cooler I could use for this instead?
