Hello, at the moment im trying to build my first rig but i've come across a bit of a problem.

I have a case that supports standard ATX motherboards and i have a motherboard that is ATX form factor. I have aligned the motherboard perfectly in the case with all the standoffs but this is where the problem comes in.

None of the PCI slots align with the spaces on the retention brackets. The PCI slots are aligned with the metal that are suppose to be separating the spaces on the brackets.

Is there anything i could do to fix this problem?

i was thinking about cutting the metal-separator thingy but idk if that's a viable option :( 

any help is welcomed. thanks in advanced ><

Could you take a picture? Generally speaking the slot itself is almost aligned with that metal piece, as a PCIe card will extend below, and therefore occupy the room where the actual space is.
