I made a post of this last year but I decided to just go without it. Wasn't sure if I made a mistake putting it in. Now I'm certain my case wasn't made correctly becuase I am currently installing a brand new motherboard and it will not fit the i/o panel. With mounting screws in place the mother board sits way to high up to properly fit the i/o panel.

I imagine the hole should be level to the one cut for pci.e devices, but it's not. I don't know what to do about this and it's infuriating because how can one even justify having a computer case replaced for something so trivial?

    99.9% are standard so it should fit.
    Is it backwards?
    Post an image show what is not fitting for others to lend a hand.

    the I/o panel fits, its not level to where the motherboard sits on the standoff screws.

    Bummer
     
    Which case do you have ?
     
    Is MB tray in the case bent ?
     
    Is the "V" groove around the I/O panel --> Even on the top & bottom and same "size" as on the sides ?  This is what creates the pressure to hold the I/O in the case opening.
     
    The I/O panel is stamped, you may be able to correct for a small variation.
     
    I would suggest contacting EVGA support

    I made a post of this last year but I decided to just go without it. Wasn't sure if I made a mistake putting it in. Now I'm certain my case wasn't made correctly becuase I am currently installing a brand new motherboard and it will not fit the i/o panel. With mounting screws in place the mother board sits way to high up to properly fit the i/o panel.

    "Mounting screws in place"?
     
    What process did you do to install the motherboards?
     
    I also have a DG-86 in the system I just built... my process, which I'm assuming is similar, if not the same for most people, is...
     
    1. pop in I/O panel (hopefully proper position/facing)...
    2. slide motherboard into I/O and let center-ish spike hold motherboard via center mount (ATX sized board).
    3. screw in.
     
    Did you ADD standoffs? Some cases need it, but the DG-86 isn't one of those, as evident by all the protruding mounts from the panel. The cases that need standoffs are completely flat.
     
    If you did, take them all out.

    Maybe caused by using different size Standoffs.

    The sheetmetal is bent so that where you would normally put standoffs is already sticking up.

    I wonder if the OP Installed Stand Offs on the Pre-Punched Stand Offs?
    As you have stated above.

    Even though I said that, the odd thing is... the standoffs would also affect any expansion slot cards mounted on to the motherboard (as you won't be able to screw down the cards), unless the OP is only using iGPU and no additional cards.

    Well without a Photo to show what the OP is seeing no one can really help the OP.
