Not too long ago, I realised that I used the wrong screws for my motherboard (M3*5 screw flat instead of the 6-32 screw flats according to the NZXT S340 manual). Now, I left two of them in the middle of the mobo (left and right) since they're stripped and I can't necessarily do anything about them. The problem is that the ones that I've replaced don't seem to be all the way in. There's some gap between the screw head and the motherboard. I cannot twist/tighten them anymore further regardless if I put force into it and twist (which I know I shouldn't do). I can boot the PC and have it working without the motherboard making any movement, but I'm always paranoid that the motherboard may just randomly fall and break something or the screws will just loosen.
I don't have clear pictures merely because I'm too afraid to open the case again and potentially damage components, but here is an example (note this only applies to all the newly installed screws and not the two stripped ones):
Please help! Thanks.
