I have a couple questions regarding installation of a new motherboared. (FM2-A85XA-G65 to be exact) the case has a small metal stand-like thing in it, and though it needs a couple for screws one is sticking out where there will not be a screw,but unfortunately I can't seem to get it out of the case.I think it's made of copper because of the color. will this cause the motherboard to short out?
another thing, is that the PCIe ports inexplicably don't line up with the back. will they still be usable or do I need to buy another case?
my last question, is whether I need to buy thermal paste and how much of it I need. I am installing A8-6600k.
edit: thank you for your feed back. I'll make sure not to ask so much in one thread next time. I noticed that the ports nor the bracket are centered in the center of the PCIe, but are actually offset by so much the the port only marks the beginning of said card. I have bought some thermal paste to be safe,as I'm unsure whether the cooler has any.
