OOOOH, you mean the backplate is too thick so it's causing your motherboard to bend?

Well in that case, as fat.clown said, make sure you attach the risers to your mobo. e.g. these things:

"As a result of all this hardship, dirt, thirst, and wombats, you would expect Australians to be a sour lot. Instead, they are genial, jolly, cheerful, and always willing to share a kind word with a stranger, unless they are an American." -- Douglas Adams

my waterblock makes my board bend. i've asked several people about this and they've all said that bending is only a problem at the point of disfunctionality. So if you board bends a little and still works fine, i wouldn't worry about it too much

but, as soul and fatclown said make sure you are using all the standoffs

Yes, because it goes between the motherboard and the case.
