  1. sounds like you installed the mb wrong.


    or else you have the only HAF X that doesn't fit a xl-atx board.
  2. was I not supposed to use the stand offs for this mobo?

    its more likely you used the standoffs in the wrong mounting holes... i'm not sure. I don't have a picture to see what's wrong. but these things should come together pretty simply. i would pull all the "stuff" out of the case. all the drive bays, everything. Then i would match the mb up with the IO slot, and see which holes you're supposed to use for mounting. then make sure your spacers are in, and you mount the mb properly.
  4. there were no other points to mount the mobo on the case and I know stand offs have to be used.
  5. That's the problem they don't match up with the IO's that's exactly the term I was looking for
  6. so far from what gigabyte says , the graphics card im using is to big for the back of the case the card in question is the GeForce gtx titan
