Default motherboard mounting problem

I am installing a motherboard, which moves up and down a tad in the bottom left corner, the standoffs are tight, and the screws are also as tight as possible on the problem area.

Is the slight movement up and down in the corner a recipe for a short? Lets say if it were to move and make contact with the screw during operation?

INTEL i7 930
3x2gb Corsair Dominators

I doubt it. I have a little "lee" in the mounting of my motherboard. And no problems.
