I am in the process of building my first computer, but I am having some difficulties, particularly in screwing the motherboard to the case. My build is exactly like the one in this video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vn_Lw8e7yFk I am trying to install a mini-itx gigabyte motherboard in a Corsair 200r ATX. This motherboard has 4 mounting holes. The issue is that one of the mounting holes in the motherboard seems to be attached to something protruding out of the case(a standoff?), which disallows me from removing the motherboard. Keep in mind, I haven't even put in any of the screws yet. Is this normal? Also, everything is not perfectly aligned. The back panel connectors seem to be nicely aligned with the I/O shield; however, the top mounting holes on the motherboard don't seem well aligned with the screw holes in the case. I've tried removing the motherboard, but it's not coming out, unless I need to put more force into it, but that doesn't seem very safe. So is it safe for me to proceed with this build? I will provide some pictures, so you can see what I am talking about:
As you can see, something from the case is protruding through the bottom right mounting hole in the motherboard. Is this a normal occurrence when building mini-itxes on bigger cases? Is thing that is protruding is what is considered a case post?
This is the top left mounting hole in the motherboard. As you can see, it's not perfectly aligned with the screw hole in the case.
This is an overview of how the motherboard is orientated in the case.
Thanks in advance for any help that can be provided.
