Heatsink/fan mounting problem

I am trying to upgrade my Biostar TF570 SLI motherboard from a AMD Athlon 64 x2 5600 to a 6000, and am having problems mounting the heatsink/fan. I am using a retail version CPU with the supplied heatsink/fan. The heatsink/fan that came with it will not seat onto the CPU because of the copper pipes. If thesae were centered on both sides, it would fit but they are offset. The mounting bracket prevents the heatsink/fan from seating onto the CPU. I was sent another heatsink/fan and the same problem, this time only on one side. If I ground off the guides on the mounting bracket on one side near the fastening screws, the second unit sent to me, which is for a K8 would likely fit, but this would cancel the warranty. The 5600 I had in there fit very good because the heatsink/fan did not have cooling pipes. I also tried a Arctic Cooler 64 Freezer Pro and it fit good but would void the warranty. Any suggestions?

Auto shutdowns can be any number of problems but since it seems to do it about the same time frame of turning it on then I would verify and make sure that the heatsink / cpu fan is installed correctly and thermal grease has been applied. Also run a memory check as failed memory could also result in a simillar problem. Another source of problems simillar to this would be the power supply.
