have the mounting bracket on the back of the mobo attached to standoffs. assume some of you are familiar. that mounting bracket on back of mobo is touching backplate (TT Black 9x case). opening is not big enough. just pondering options:
- leave as is. will it fry mobo/components when i hit the power switch?
- take tin snips to backplate and take out enough to clear mounting bracket. i think it would work. little ugly but whos going to see it?
- new case
- new cooler
- put the old intel cooler back, but seems it was running warmer than should: 58-60C at light load, close to 90C with some work going on.
any suggestions. will fix it one way or other this weekend.
