Need help mounting m/b in case

Trying to install Soyo P4s Dragon Ultra m/b in Evercase EC4252 case.(first timer) Case has 9 little mounds/dimples for the mounting screws. If I put Evercase supplied spacers in these screwhole mounds, m/b is too high for backplate. If I attach m/b to mounds directly, height is perfect. But only eight of the 9 screwholes on m/b line up with a "mound". So one mound is in contact with back of m/b. Won't that short it out? What am I supposed to do? Nothing in manuals or mfgr websites. Thanks.

  1. Try removing the mound that doesn't line up right, and use only the 8 mounds. They should provide adequate support for your board. If you can't remove it, I would glue a small piece of foam to the top of the mound that doesn't line up. This may prevent direct contact with the board. If you're still not comfortable with the situation, I would return the case and get another one.
  2. if you cant remove it, use force :)

  5. You can flaten a dimple with a hammer, when your board is mounted on dimples.
