Hi guys I am struggling to get the asus maximum vi hero mobo holes to align with the case cut out.

The case is a NZXT Phantom 410 (mid tower)

Has anyone heard of this before?

Thanks.

Have you installed the standoffs?

Yes I have installed the standoffs.

I believe they are in the correct position as I can nearly see the holes, (or I can see a few of them perfectly) but not all the holes are aligned properly. There are a few just a little off, I have tried wiggling quite a bit and they won't line up.

That's the exact video I am using, that's the exact pattern of stand offs I am using

You have the I/O shield in place which requires you to push a little bit more on the board to get it place.


Try getting the upper left screw in place and then the lowest right hand one. That should make all of the rest line up.

I did like you said and pushed quite hard, I managed to get the top left and bottom right screwed in perfectly which helped the rest.

There is still one hole that I can only see 3 quarters of. When I screw it, it goes in diagonal.

All the other screws are perfect, am I best to just leave the diagonal screw or could that be a problem?

You can leave it out and it shouldn't be a problem at all.

You think so? Even with the bottom of the motherboard touching the stand off?

I would loosen all the screws and try to shift it a tiny bit then screw them all again, but I am afraid I might have fucked the inside of the stand off from screwing diagonally.

you will by going in diagonally.

If you dont have a screw in it that hole and its still touching the standoff and your still good. The standoffs are grounding the motherboard to the case. so if your missing one its not going to hurt or cause any problems at all.

But I mean, am I better leaving the screw in diagonal? I already have it screwed in a little diagonally.

Or should I just take the screw out?

Thanks.

I managed to loosen the screws and I managed to get my girlfriend to push while I slipped in a screw to the hole that was causing me problems. (that sounds wrong, and yes I am so useless I had to get my gf to help)

So now I have all 9 screws in completely straight!

I just wanted to see thanks very much for the help, I was completely demotivated for a while there, was wrecking my head that I couldn't get them to line up. But you really helped.

Thanks so much, really grateful!
