We chose an EVGA E760 Intel X58 motherboard because of a number of features.
Screw the brass screws into your case. They allow the motherboard to sit away from the metal.
The motherboard port panel protects the case from dust and dirt. The port panel is motherboard-specific. Install it before seating your motherboard.
Seat the motherboard on top of the brass screws that you put in previously making sure that the holes line up.
Use the provided screws to screw the motherboard to the case. The screws should be snug, but not too tight or you risk cracking your motherboard.
This is how the motherboard should look when installed correctly.
