    Screw holes in Maximus v formula

    Hello all!!

    Yesterday I bought my maximus v formula keyboard. While I was reading the manual, I saw that it says something about 10 screws.. I have only seen 9 on the motherboard.. The 10th supposed to be next to the second PCI-E x8. I don't see anything. Is this a typo in the book, or there is a 10th hole that I don't see?

    Thanks in advance!

    The 10th hole is reserved for you should you make a mistake ... that way you have something to fall into.

    That seems to be a common issue. I too spent an afternoon looking for my 10th screw for my MVF. I also assembled an AsRock Z77 Fatality build for a friend. His mobo's documentation had the same typo.
