My System Specs


This is probably a ridiculous suggestion, but check your standoffs to make sure you're not missing any/have extra. Even if you have 1 extra standoff it could cause your short.

Can you remove the short standoffs and replace them with taller ones?

What about installing tall standoffs into the short ones (assuming they're brazed to the board). You would need to use washers when installing your PCI cards if that is the solution...
