When I go to put the card in the slot, the area where the PCI slot screws screw in, sits above the case about half a centimeter. If I tighten the screws down, it pushes the far side of the graphics card out toward the case.
If I take the motherboard out of the case, the card fits just fine, it does not hit any parts on the motherboard.
If I put the card into the case without the motherboard, it fits just fine through the PCI slot holes through to the back, and sits flush with the screws.
When I put the motherboard in the case, with the GPU, it does this.
My friend has the 'exact' same case and motherboard. I tried it on his setup, and of course, it fits just fine. The 'exact' same mobo and case.
I'm going crazy trying to figure out why. Is this something I should even worry about? I don't like the idea of the stress its putting on the card when tightened down. The PC works/looks great otherwise...
