I warped my motherboard?

I think I warped my motherboard. I noticed this after I built it so today I decided to remount the mobo and cooler, I thought this would fix the warp but it did nothing. The warp is still there, the pc works absolutely perfect. I think it's warped because my cooler which weighs about 760 grams uses the normal am4 cpu backplate. Should I be worried about this warped motherboard?

motherboards are flexible, if the system has no issues then don't trouble yourself over it.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B


Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.


Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

I've had a NH-D14(probably heavier than NH-D15) mounted to my GA-X58A-UD5 for 10 years, it's been in the car numerous times and gets carried up and down stairs like every 3 months at least to get dusted out. I also always handle the motherboard by the cooler whenever it comes out of the case, ect.


Many boards have a little warp to them, some cases don't exactly have a perfectly flat mounting surface either. I've had to adjust standoffs just to get things to mount before.

Hey, I have the same combo, also 10 years old, still gets some occasional use :D


Also have a D14 on my 5960X that was shipped with it mounted.

And I have a mini ITX board that was already a banana out of the box, and it runs just fine.
