ASUS P67 Pro motherboard problem

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I tried installing the Asus Pro into my Coolermaster 690 II Advanced case last night. I encountered a problem when trying to align the holes to screw in the mobo to the case. It appears the backplate has a padding on it that is not allowing the holes to align. I cannot get them to align using a lot of force pushing the mobo to the left. I'm worried that it is putting a lot of stress on the mobo attempting this. Should I just rip off the padding to make it fit better? Or just attempt to brute force it in?

Thanks.

Are you sure the io shield is snapped in all the way?The padding should not be an issue.The back of the io shield should be flat with the inside of the case.

Are you sure the I/O back pannel is correctly pulled into the hole for it? It takes a lot of pressure to make it go there.
And if it's in place you wont have to make much pressure to align the holes, if it's not in place yes.

I had the same problem at first, its just the I/O shield not being completely flush.

This I/O plate was extremely hard to get a good fit. I made sure I heard it click on all four corners several times. I also looked around to make sure nothing else was affecting the placement. Another problem I had was the bluetooth dongle did not fit correctly. It was hitting the top of the I/O plate. I assumed that was the problem until I cut the padding from the bluetooth portion, and I'm still having the problem. I'm pretty sure it's the I/O plate because when I try to push it left I can feel pressure on the I/O plate.

Any suggestions?

Yea I was thinking the pictures are going to be difficult to see when it's hard enough to to see the areas where the screws should be.

I'll post some when I get home tho.

Edit:

So I just went ahead and forced it over. I've never owned an Asus motherboard before besides an open box H55 from newegg that was DOA. I've never had so much trouble in my life attempting to install a mobo .
