Don't screw the motherboard into your case too tightly. Also, try not to use too much force. If it doesn't fit, see if you did it wrong. If you arent doing it wrong, go ahead and use force. READ THE MANUAL.

That's all the advice I have XD

I spent an hour and a half messing around with the mounting the H100 cooler plate to the CPU. I was having trouble getting contact.. Finally found a thread that let me know I shouldn't be using the backplate and I was using the wrong standoffs.
