Hello everyone,
I purchased the FTW K for my Evolv X. However, one of the screws for the motherboard does not fit into the case because of the RGB I/O cover. Can any of the FTW owners post what the did for the screw at the 9 o'clock position? A longer screw seems like the only option. Thank you!

    You need to use that Mounting Pointing Point on your X299 FTW Motherboard, I did use a longer Screw than what came with the Case.
    If you do not have a Screw Long enough you need to keep the Motherboard Standoff installed to support the Motherboard and GPU.
    Why, because it holds the Center of the Backside of the Motherboard and is needed to support the Graphics Card.
    Push to hard installing the Graphics Card you could crack the PCB in the back or not insert the back part of the Graphics Card into the Slot.

     
    And Yes I do own this Motherboard View System

    Thats very helpful info. Do you know where I can get a longer screw or the dimensions of the screw? Where did you get your screw for that bolting position? I wish EVGA supplied the screw or didn't make the I/O cover that long.
