Don't know if you can see it, but it's that tiny little metal tab above the expansion slot. I'm not sure exactly what thing is there for but it was easy getting it down.

And is it normal for the back i/o plate to convex like this? Not a big issue but a bit annoying.
Unless you're doing the spread method(and even then really) you should only be applying the TIM to one surface. The CPU is more logical for line and dot methods since you can put it directly in the middle of the CPU which is the one place you really don't want to be missing any TIM. The edges are not quiiiite as important.
Also, yeah, I do sometimes worry when first applying TIM on a new chip or newly lapped surfaces about it...leaking down....i think you said a few pages back. Even if it's not electrically conductive(and really be careful it is lol) you can have TIM spread out from the middle and flow over the edges before it's done spreading and having it get on one of your cpu pins or in the sockets will probably stop you from posting on your next reboot. Cand be a pain in the ass to clean =)

As for the little tab, if I had to guess maybe your case can come with or be 'upgraded' with a screw-less style pci slot retention system. Those are typically secured by a small piece of metal you leverage behind a little tab...usually right about where that one is =)

Your backplate should 'normally' not be warped in any way and can take longer than you'd think to install with certain combinations of hardware. Was it warped before you installed it or did you just notice after screwing down the mobo that it got tweaked? I have seen it happen a lot when people paint their cases and either don't sand enough first or go crazy with the spraypaint layers and shrink the size of I/O cutout so the plate no longer fits right. Sometimes that can cause problem like shorting out the motherboard or other really wacky stuff sometimes but whenever I hear of it being a problem it's usually debilitating so I wouldn't worry about it if you were able to boot up fine and all your hardware seems to be working correctly.

Thanks slimbrady, some really helpful info man. (+1 rep)

The backplate became warped once I installed it through the back... Weird, but I made sure that it was in there correctly and it appears to be. So this was a problem before I installed my mobo.

Hey np man, thanks. If you had to force the mobo pretty hard against the plate to get the holes to line up with the stand offs then it was probably just a tiny bit off or maybe had a little too much padding etc but I don't think it's worth fixing if your usb ports etc all work fine and the mobo doesn't start acting up. Friggin hate having to pull out the motherboard after just getting done hooking up all your components. I would probably even sacrifice a USB(2.0) port or two just to avoid it, lol.

That's the thing, the mobo alignd up fine, didn't have to force anything in at all. It's just he backplate warped when I installed in on my case. Either the case made the I/O cut out too small or the mobo backplate was made a little to big that it flexed when I installed it. It's a good thing I haven't installed any components yet lol I'm so ocd when it comes to little things like this.

Other than for looks is there a reason you have a grill on the fan inside of the case? Just restricting airflow and not worth it for looks at least I would never have it on there myself.

Hey guys

Bought an H50 from a forum member and I noticed on the AMD backplate the stick adhesive bits have come off, is this a problem (Would I Have to go and get some self-adhesive foam tape?) or can I proceed as normal?

No need to get more tape either hold it up there if you have to or use some regular tape to hold it in place while you screw the bracket in from the other side.
