    heatsink asus strix z390i gaming causing compatibility issues with louqe raw s1

    i am trying to install the asus strix z390i gaming in the louqe raw s1 case and the big heatsink ontop of the i/o ports is preventing the motherboard from fitting, can i safely remove this heatsink or is it needed for cooling of the motherboard, and if i can remove it can i remove the I/O plate too as that one is too high up now and is also the reason the motheboard doesn't fit i assume it needs to be inserted in the case for it to be lower but i don't know, worst case scenario it will only wit without the shieldplate or the heatsink.

    Hi ZZCOOL,

    If it were me...

    I wouldn't remove anything from the motherboard, would a little work with a dremel tool to the case get it to fit?

    How about some shorter motherboard stand offs?

    I can't tell if the ones installed are removable.
