http://imgur.com/gallery/xK4DQo7Hello, I'm trying to finish a build to. I've got a big issue though and it's very frustrating. I have a corsair crystal 460x and corsair sp120 fan I'm trying to install for exhaust. My motherboard is an asrock prime x570 board with those big too shroud (which is the problem). When the motherboard is installed theres a gap you can see if you look at the back of the io shield and can see the back side of the board. Also when installing my exhaust fan. The holes wont even line up because the io shroud is so fat that its prohibiting that extra couple millimeters of fan space for the install. I'm about to just sell the case and go for a bigger one but I'm really keen on a white build. And help?

So I'm an idiot. I believe the white pegs from the case are "pre-installed" standoffs. And so I just installed those black stand offs ontop and that's why I'm having the issue I'm having.

Ah, I was wondering just how big that shroud was to do that. Glad you resolved the issue; I hadn't even considered you might have had your motherboard too high!
