First off, I'd just like to say hello to everybody, and thanks in advance to any replies. i'm stuck right now.

So i'm building my first computer, and I'm super stoked because everything finally came. I go to mount the motherboard in the case, and it doesn't fit in the back. Where the Mouse / Keyboard slots are supposed to be, they do not fit. If i slide one slot down, they fit into that hole as do all the other corresponding parts of the motherboard such as the monitor plug in, printer plug-in, etc.

see, now everything would be fine and dandy because everything finally fits, however my rear USB ports as well as the onboard LAN ports do not fit on the bottom of the motherboard.

I have This Motherboard and I bought this case


I need help :thumbsup:

your case looks fine, it looks big enough for ur MoBo. you might want to look for the I/O shield that came with your mobo and replace that and it should fit. if u need help go on youtube theres a video on how tto do that

if an admin/mod could delete this, i have found the extra backplate that has come with my motherboard. this is why i love the internet. I shouldn't build a computer after 6 hours of school and 7 hours of work in one day on 4 hours sleep.

If your extra rear I/O panel will replace the rear of the case, then you're fine. If not... .. You'll have to improvise.
