    Unhappy lga 1155 extreme4 z77 motherboard width??

    I was looking at the asrock z77 lga 1155 extreme4 motherboard and thinking about buying it. well I was reading the reviews and as I was just about to hit the "add to cart" button I noticed one review saying that it doesn't lineup with the standoffs on the right side of the board. in other wards you have no support when plugging in the 24 pin and other stuff. I looked at the dimensions and it says 8.6 inches wide. normal boards are about 9.6. given that the board is flimsier than most did asrock purposely design the board that way?? were they to lazy to have ALL the mounting holes lineup for an atx case. there are so many great reviews about this board and couple of my friends even have it and love it. (haven't asked them about this). I probably explained this like crap and im sorry >.> I just want to know if this was the way the board was supposed to be designed and if so what are the reasons for doing so. obviously they must have a pretty good reason for not giving the board the proper support it needs to be mounted in a case. plus it would seem fairly easy for someone configuring their cables to accidentally touch the board to the case and just fry it as said before (it is flimsier than other boards)

    Welcome to the forum.
    The narrower motherboard form factor provides more room inside the computer case and this might help with smaller cases.
    I've seen several ASRock motherboard reviews where they commented on the motherboard being flimsy.
    For me, this rules out buying any flimsy motherboard model.

    My P35 motherboard is the same size, but it's not a problem if you are careful.
    I always unplug the power supply cable from the back of the computer case (or the wall outlet) before I make any changes to the inside of the case.
    If I'm removing or installing any cables to the motherboard that are to the right front of the motherboard attachment screws, I support the loose end of the motherboard with my other hand so that the board can't flex.

    Looking for a good forum username, how about FlexiMobo?

    Same here, and I've had no difficulty with Z77 Extreme4 flexion.
