motherboard is bending a bit am i gonna damage it

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i installed my motherboard into my rack mount server case. the case only had room for four mobo standoffs, i also noticed after installing the board that at the top of the board near my CORSAIR A70 CPU cooler. below is a picture edited to show the issue. the big oval shaped area in red is the area thats bending a bit, the other 4 smaller red circles show where the mobo is screwed to the standoffs. im guessing its bending due to the weight of my cpu cooler how bad will this be in the long run for my board and will it damage it heres a link to my mobo

edit i installed the cpu cooler before installing the mobo into the case because it was my first time installing a cpu cooler with a back plate
