Let's custom fit a full cover block with a saw

So I bought myself a x570 taichi razor board and wanted a full cover block and thought to myself the X 570 taichi will fit because it's the same bored just with some RGB and a razer logo..... it's not

Hardly any difference in price but it has more phases different vrm setup a load of other bits like audio but also different mounting points so anyway this full cover block does not fit but I can't get one for that motherboard so I've decided to take a saw to it,

As you can see in the pictures I've removed all the vrm mount points cut about 8 mm of the end as this bord has 2×8 pin chipset power and one is in the was and shaved down all the cpu mounts as they were standing proud

 

Once I put all this on and clamped it down i did not make good contact as you can see from the remnants of thermal paste

 

Some more cutting may be in order
