Are you sure you used the correct holes when screwing your motherboard in? might want to try switching holes.

Edit: I got the impression your saying the hole doesn't line up...

Somethings terrilbly wrong with either your case or your MOBO.. lol Really the Slots on the motherboard should be in line with the openings on the back, and right now they are in line with the metal in between.

Are you sure you have your mobo set right? It should be up about a 3/8 of an inch.
