I was trying to replace the Fan for my CPU Cooler, but its GONE WRONG! (NOT CLICKBAIT)
I removed the Cooler from the CPU, cleaned the Thermal Paste off both components, then I proceeded to disassemble the Old Fan from the Heatsink successfully. Now, this is where the problem appeared, as I was just about to re-assemble the New Fan to the Heatsink, I was not able to figure out why I wasn't able to connect them. I've already checked the specifications of my Cooler and the New Fan that I bought is 100% compatible for it, I just can figure out why I'm not able to connect it to the Heatsink.
I feel like I'm missing a component that connects the fan to the Heatsink, if so can someone tell me what this component is?
WHY IS THIS HAPPENING? I'm freaking out, this is my first time opening my computer and actually making changes to it alone.
This is my Cooler with the New Fan:
