Hi

Building first pc - have Asus A8n sli deluxe motherboard (s939) to put in Thermaltake Kandalf case. Had to remove case face place and replace with one provided with motherboard - no prob. However, cannot secure motherboard - only 3 screws go in on the right hand side - left hand side has to be tilted up nearly 1/2 cm to reach the holes in the face plate, so motherboard is on an angle with only 3 screws holding it in place. Any suggestions plse to fit properly? - washers/propping up etc

Thnx

try to position it so you have 2 screws screwed in on the left and 2 on the right. My friends ASUS had the same problem, just reposition it so there is atleast 2 on the left and 2 on the right.

For all other first -time dummies out there - just solved my own problem!

The manual does not tell you, but the kit contains some bronze hex screws to lift the motherboard off the case by about 8mm - this will make is fit nicely level and properly into the face plate!

Off we go until we hit the next problem!
