problem installing asus p8p67 mobo into haf 932 black

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Forgive me here for I am noob and this is the first computer I am building on my own

I am trying to install the mobo into case, however this tiny tab sticking out is blocking it from full being settled into the I/O shield. I am not sure what do at this point, do I rip it off?

don't rip it off, its for EMI shielding, it should sandwich between the I/O foil.

Line up the I/O stuff to the I/O foil and use some pressure to push the MOBO against it while you get your first screw in. Don't make it tight yet til you get 3-4 more in and the holes will line up w/ the stand off.

Hmm im not sure what to do, the holes in the mobo just dont seem to line up with the screws, unless I put an ungodly amount of pressure, friends tell me I should not be putting pressure at all and the screws should just line up on their own.

I'm not calling you an idiot but I must ask... are you using stand-offs between your motherboard tray and the motherboard?

yes put pressure on it, its part of the design, don't be scared. Push from the PCB board, not any parts on the motherboard. It should move about 1-3mm for the first screw to line up. Then twist the board it fit the 2nd screw. From there on its cake.

Even if you DID rip it off, it would be the same thing. Just make sure those lil foil tabs don't bend down and block the I/O port when you place the board in.

yes I am, the standoffs don't align with the mobo holes unless I put insane pressure to jam it into the IO foil, however I cannot keep hold of this pressure and put the screws in at the same time.

Yeah just be patient I/O plates are always a pain just some much worse than others.
Take a 10 min break walk away do something else then comeback with a clear head.

I had this exact problem when installing an Asus P8P67 LE mobo, although a have the Coolermaster Haf 922 mid tower case.
Following this I immediately had problems with the BIOS/Memory OK! button not saving any settings. I am unsure whether the mobo already had this fault or whether damage was caused to the mobo by the force required to apply enough pressure on the connectors foil to fit the board it into the case.
However, I have since discovered that the Asus P8P67 series of boards have been plagued with BIOS/Memory OK! problems. ASUS had already added a supposed "fix" for this board due to its failure to work with DDDR3 1600 Mhz memory although this has not worked in my case. ASUS support, I might add, have been absolutely useless so far, evading any questions with one line non-answers which you have to wait 48 hours to receive only to repeat the problems as they just ignore what you are saying.
The latest suggestion from ASUS "support" was the one line reply, to a full account of the problems I am having, "Thank you for contacting ASUS Customer Service. Could you please try another model if possible? Best Regards"
Another model of mobo presumably? From another manufacturer who actually offer support?
