Am I putting too much strain on my motherboard?

Hello. When installing my motherboard into my case I had a bit of an issue. My motherboard would not line up with my i/o shield and my standoffs, so the motherboard couldn't be on the standoffs and in the i/o shield at the same time. I tried for hours to get them lined up, and I finally did, but with a lot of force. I was able to screw in 7 of the 9 screws, but it was a hassle and I feel like I am putting too much stress of the board. I had to use a lot of force to get the screws to go in the standoffs. 1 or 2 of the screws are also slightly tilted. If I'm putting too much pressure on my board I don't know what else I could do to get my motherboard to line up with the standoffs and i/o shield.

  1. Check your motherboard, if it is bent/curving alot then you should get another case. Otherwise, YOLO.
