UPDATE 11/11/18 Anyone using the Master and the metal XSPC backplate must bend or trim at least one of the capacitor pins on the back of the board as it will short out to the backplate. CHECK YOUR BACKPLATES ON ALL BOARDS AND PLEASE POST YOUR FINDINGS. I will update the thread as people post their findings.
