My First Build Project

Hello guys, I've been looking at this great website for the last three months just about. A lot of helpful advice has been given to others on their builds and I was hoping you guys could do the same for me. I am in the midst of starting my build right now. Below are the specs:


CPU: AMD FX-8150

MOBO: Gigabyte 990-FXA-UD3

GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 660

SSD: Corsair 128GB

Cooler: Asetek (came packaged with the 8150)

Case: Thermaltake Chaser A31 (I may be one of the first around to actually use this new case in a rig)

PSU: Thermaltake TR2 700w

I'm getting the RAM later this week. Went way over my budget with this but oh well. My issue at the moment is I can't seem to get the I/O shield for the case flush with the mobo. I have it inside the case with no problem but it looks like the pins on the back side of it are keeping it from getting all the way to it. Is there a good fix for this? Below is the pics of the build so follow along if you wish to see my progress.

Oh I've named my new machine Endless Summer.
