Mobo IO wont fit Correctly

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ok I think I'm screwed.
I bought the Cooler master 430, and recently got Maximus IV mobo, its nice, small and a pain to set correctly in the case. Its off maybe quarter inch and I totally screwed up the io shield. (forgive me if the name parts are wrong).
Also since I applied too much thermal past I had a hard tie with my hyper 212 chip cooler. IM soo ticked off at this point I don't know what to to.

OK here's where I am at. Do I bother keeping the case (lost the recipe) and or get a new one or deal with it as is? $ is not that big an issue cause Ill just put it on a credit card. Also some thermal past dripped on the mobo, I managed to clean it up with alcohol as I found that info on the net. I wont get my pwr supply & video card till another 3 days in the mail.



A little help and insight is much appreciated.

I5 2500k
ASUS MAXIMUS IV GENE-Z
Corsair vengance 8gb

Are you sure it's not just the bit of resistance you feel as you slide it up against the IO shield? Pics would help a lot.

In my anger I didnt realize I should have taken a pic.
I will as soon as I get home. COnsider a normal IO sloted perfect, well mine, its half way to the right, leaving the left side open (only half)
I took the thermal padding off the io shield thinking it would help, made it worse as I cutted it up thinking I cna mend it in.

I'm confused. Did the motherboard itself mount fine?

Also, I don't even use I/O shields.

Mobo is mounted fine, just the IO area doesnt seat right. I feel cheated , maybe its the Case design?

Ive put too much $ into this to stop so being this is my first true build I'm loosing hope I can get this right. The last thign I want is a jacked up mobo and have to rma it to newegg. Do I even need the io shield?

Isn't the Maximus IV eATX? I don't think the 430 supports that form factor...

EDIT: nvm, you have teh Gene-z

When you installed the IO shield did it cliqued? When I install a board I put it at a 45º angle with the IO shield and then aligned it with the standoffs, bad mistake taking the thermal padding it helps with grounding issues.

About 1/4 inch to the right, even trying to angle it was a no go.
