Revamping an old system and got my hands on a brand new X79 Rampage BE. My question is the board is a bit wider than a normal X79 board, or even my other X79 Gigabyte UP4. The board's right edge is resting on the rubber grommets used for cabling. This is due to a slight angle the Phantetek case takes. I've verified with a feeler gauge (cardboard) and by visual inspection that no connectors are touching any part of the case, but as I said the edge of the mobo is resting on these rubber groments.

See attached pictures. What is yalls opinion? I don't feel there will be an issue, but I wanted to reach out and get some better opinions. I definitely don't want to risk screwing this rare gem up.

Thanks!

Yep the backside of my Intel dual LGA 2011 board has been resting nicely on large rubber cable pass through grommets just like the ones in your photos since November. No problems at all.

Just make sure with those pre installed standoffs that all of them line up with a motherboard mounting hole and there aren't any strays making contact with the underside of the board.

So far so good! Waiting on a few more parts but she is up and running. Setting up OS, programs, software etc... This mobo and bios are tremendously better than the gigabyte UP4 I took the i7-4930k from. 20170218_222749.jpeg 20170218_223411.jpeg
