Separately mounting adapter ???

The Cooler Master - Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler may require a separately available mounting adapter to fit the MSI - B350M GAMING PRO Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard.

What exactly does this mean and how do I get one?

AM4 is a new socket, so most CPU coolers will need a new mounting adapter to use it with it. However, Cooler Master seems to have it sorted out. For the 212 EVO you'll need to get a new mounting kit, but there are more details in the link, so I'll let you read it.

You can purchase it here: http://www.cmstore.eu/cooling/amd-am4-upgrade-kit-air1-xclip-rr-am4b-h212-s1/

It's free, but I think you'll need to verify that you have the 212 EVO.

Is there anything else I will need?

Probably not. Just the mounting kit, an AM4 motherboard and your CPU cooler.

The hyper 212 evo is dated and a poor choice. The cryorig m9a would be better at low budgets, or the H7 at higher budgets. But, the warning means you will need a bracket to mount the cooler.

Okay with the cryorig m9a use the same bracket as the On that other person gave me?
