I'm a little concerned about the slight bend I get on my motherboard(abit nf7-s v2.0) when tightening the standoff bolts to the back X plate on my slk900u. Should I be turning the bolt until it gets finger tight or should I turn until the bolt hits the end of the thread ?. Its only a slight bend at maximum but I'd like a second opinion.

TIA

tighten til you feel some resistance, that means the bolt has hit the bottom of its standoff....
thats what I do when fitting my alpha, should be the same principle for the slk....
