Default build questions

Hey all, just a few questions regarding my build:

1. I was able to screw 7 out of the 9 motherboard screws in. Of the 7, some do not have washers is this ok? Also, two of the screws do not tighten though they look identical to the other screws that work just fine. Is it that they aren't the same?

2. My 8-pin cpu power cable is short, will it be ok if it lays on top of the gtx 260? Or will this cause a short?

3. One of my fan cables is touching one of the ram sticks is this going to be a problem?

Thanks all,

1. You really don't need the washers as the screw holes are conductivly separate from the electricals of the mobo. The two that don't tighten up are probably too small even though they look the same as the others.

2. That will be fine.

3. No problems there either.
