hello! So i have an Asus M5A99x Evo R 2.0, motherboard and i have some questions. Also i am using the NZXT Source 210 Case.

So first question is when i got the motherboard in the case i put in the 2 screws in the corner like it say's to do. But now the middle of the motherboard is like pushed up and when i try to put a screw in i have to push really hard so i dont, and im scared to push down to get that screw in. And when i do push there is crackling sounds. And i just dont know what to do. Also i have 5 of the 9 screws in, and there all the outer ones. So is that stable? And i have it upright and its holding up im just not sure if its good for the MoBo.

Question two, the motherboard came without an I/O Shield that fits (Completely wrong shield) is it ok if i go on without one for now?

On the top of the MoBo where it says EPU and has an 8-Pin power connector slot and i plug it in then turn on my power supply to see if it works, nothing happens, but when i unplug it everything turns on.

The PC case hardware includes standoffs to mount the motherboard on. The standoff provides a margin of space between the motherboard and the case to keep the multiple solder points below from grounding and short-circuiting.
