Asus Board wont sit with i/o shield

I bought an asus board (this one http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/P5G41TM_LX/)

And if i put the i/o shield in, the motherboard wont line up with the stand offs. I've been doing this for 3 hours now...It just wont line up...

What do i do....it is really pissing me off :(

  1. Is the case you are using a standard atx case? Is it a good quality case?
  2. I'm using a cooler master storm enforcer.
  3. Is the I/O shield snapped firmly in place?
  4. Same case I have. It's a good quality case, so I don't question the placement of the standoffs. What happens if you align the MB so that the standoffs match the MB? Does the IO shield then not fit at all?

    1) Check that the i/o shield is pressed firmly in place along all sides. It takes quite a bit of pressure to do this.

    2) Insert the motherboard so that the i/o shield openings match up with the motherboard rear panel attachments. Make certain that there are no tabs obstructing anything.

    3) Press the motherboard into the i/o shield and line up the nearest matching standoff hole. It is easier if you happen to have three hands :) one to hold the case, one to push the mobo into the shield, and the third to put in the first screw. Do not tighten until all standoff screws are in place.

    4) Once you get a second standoff screw in, you should be good.
  6. Turns out I had to bend the I/O shield outwards a bit and it worked fine.

    All the outputs are perfectly lined up with the case as well as the stand offs.

    Weird, but true.

    Thanks!~
