Motherboard bending slightly

 Share

Hi there i'm just looking for a little bit of help, I've recently built a new pc and my motherboard seems to be bending slightly in the case, the motherboard im using is this one https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/B450-AORUS-ELITE-rev-10#kf and the case i'm using is this https://www.gigabyte.com/Chassis/GB-AC300W-rev-10#kf my case has the standard 9 stand off points for an atx motherboard but my motherboard only has 7 of which on the case I can only screw down 6 the 7th hole doesn't reach far enough to the next one on the right side of the board though my motherboard seems to be bending very slightly forwards not by much but its noticeable if I take a close look at it, i'm wondering if its because I can't connect the 7th stand off which is on that part of the board. 

does anyone know if that's likely to cause any long term damage? I've tried softly pushing it back into place but as soon as I let go it springs back, I've also tried re doing the standoffs but same thing. 

Any help is appreciated and Merry Christmas :)

should be fine, mine is bent just slightly because the built-in LEDs along the far edge make it too thick not to hit the cable routing grommets. Do you have a pic showing the bend?
