Is this ok?
I mounted the mobo in the case and started wiring. I am using an after market CPU fan. It is the Havik 140. While wiring, I noticed on the back side of the mobo, the bracket for the CPU fan doesn't quite line up with the hole in the case. Parts of the bracket are touching the case. I installed the spacer so it is really only the bracket touching the case. Is it ok to leave like this and if not, suggestions on fixing it? Here is a picture but it is upside down:

As long as there is a non conductive spacer or sheet between the bracket and the motherboard, you should be fine.
