I just got a Carbide 200R and it has been probably the most perfect case for an air cooled setup, but when I started installing the PCI-e cards I can't seem to get them down to the case, like if the motherboard is too "high". I checked if the motherboard is seated correctly, and it does match the backplate, but all the cards are too high to screw on.

Anyone have this kind of problem?

Yea it does, that's what I meant by backplate. All my cards, including my graphics card are too high by about 1 cm.

The standoffs aren't removable on the 200R

Hey avatzz, I had this problem too, but i figured it out. You have to put the cards in from the bottom first. The problem this case has is that the standoffs are too close to the expansion slots, so there isn't enough clearance for the cards to go in straight down. You have to put the bottom of the expansion slot plate into the gap between the motherboard and the side of the case, and then straighten it out. I know its a little confusing but you will know what I mean.

I'm not sure what you mean, there is plenty of space between the case and the motherboard. Here are photos of the front and back.
