Hey

Building my PC right now, and trying to install the mobo. I/O Panel is giving me fits with its pins. Am I to bend them backwards? Perpendicular? Leave them as is? (Which is hard to believe as it would block the inputs).

Thanks

If you bend those pins, you'll be crying, as you'll probably need a new motherboard or such.

Are you trying to connect something to a location on the motherboard and it won't fit? If so, then you're connecting to the wrong location.

Describe your setup more thoroughly and specify how it's displayed to you.

Never mind, I'm such an idiot. Was supposed to only bend the big tongues, not the little ones. Fixed it, mobo fits in fine, if not snugly. Now for the CPU...whoo-hoo!
