just double and triple checked thats only 1 i have not the other will it work on am4 or do i need to call swiftech? for other mount set?
Adjust the screws on the AMD bracket to match the motherboard holes. Screw everything back together in an x pattern (hopefully you put the CPU and TIM in at some point). Some motherboard makers glue their backplate to the board.
if not, temporarily secure it tape, cardboard box, old copy of computer shopper or double side tape for something more permanent. worst case ask somebody to hold for you.

also my old water kit is still in so to fill what should i plug it into? my old kit is using cpu fan can i just use any other header to run it so i can fill it?
But (and there's always one of those), I always have difficulty filling it all the way without any bubbles unless I do the following:
1. Turn the power off at the PSU and remove the AIO from the PC.
2. Drain and fill the unit with the appropriate fluid.
3. Sit the unit outside your PC with the tubing still in tact.
4. Disconnect the power to the motherboard. If you don't do this then the PC will attempt to start and will fault due to not having anything to cool the CPU.
5. Connect the power header for your Swiftech AIO.
6. Ensure the unit is standing up so that the fill port is pointing upwards and open it.
7. Cycle the PSU on with the PSU switch let it run for a couple seconds then turn it off. Some bubble should release out the top.
8. Fill it (should only be a few drops at a time.
9. Repeat steps 7 & 8 as needed until the unit is mostly full. It is good to leave a tiny bit of space for expansion when and if the water gets warm.
10. Once you have it filled enough close it up and turn the power on and let it run for an hour. this is to check for leaks. If there are no leaks reconnect everything back into your PC.
11. Run your PC but CHECK FOR LEAKS often over the next day or so. In fact it may be a good idea to set some paper towels below the unit to see any minor leaks that may be happening.
Remember to fix all leaks no matter how minor right away!
