My System Specs

Default

I think what he means, is that the standoffs aren't tall enough to allow the backplate to fit in the space between the motherboard and the tray, In which case, I echo GBA's question of whether or not the stock backplate was removed.

Thermal paste may or may not be a problem if you accidentally get it on your motherboard. If the thermal paste is conductive, and if you got it on exposed electrical traces or components, then you should make sure to remove it. If the thermal paste isn't conductive, or you got it on a non-electrical part, don't worry about it.
