Should I get a new case or stay with the current case?

If it works I'd leave it.

 

It's not like it moves around alot anyway

I posted previously about an issue where my gpu was not going in all the way on the left side of the notch in the pcie slot. 

As suggested by some its because of a thicker pcb of x570 boards as some others also faced it with their x570 and known good branded cases.

So I was thinking of going with another case nd trying it out or should I stay with the current one. 

Pc runs okay for now and gpu has not shorted out :P

I used some screws with bolts to be extra careful, it stays put in its place.

sand down the backs of your motherboard standoffs?

Its actually shorter standoffs. I need some standoffs that are a bit bigger in size, but all I have are the same size.

Then the screws wont thread properly. But the gpu clicked in place and works okay so I will leave it at that
