Hi yesterday I purchased Corsair H80 and I today when I tried to install Corsair H80 I am not able to!. Behind the motherboard, to which I should fix the spider like attachment given by corsair, I am not able to do that. Out of 4 Holes, Only 2 holes of motherboard Is visible behind the cabinet and 2 holes are hiding behind the cabinet!

My Cabinet


This is that Spider like attachment I am talking about


and also the distance between the motherboard and the sheet is very thin.. If I take out the motherboard and install the cooler and reattach it in the cabinet, The spider like attachment is touching the sheet of the cabinet.. Is it a non-conductor of electricity?.. Will it do any harm if I attach this way?.. Please help me out guys...

The spider like attachment (only four legs?) is the backplate. I wouldn't have thought it'd be a major problem for it to be in contact with the case, but happy to be corrected. Is the motherboard fitted correctly? It seems odd to me that the hole doesn't line up with the processor.
