Default Motherboard screwing in

When im screwing in my motherboard... Some screws dont go in tightly. I already have like 4 or 5 in tight. Should i just not screw in those ones?

have you stripped the threads in the risers?

are there risers under the the board where you're trying to screw in screws?

Can you post a pic of your board with which screws are in and which won't tighten?

What cpu cooler are you using? (it will have a bearing on which screws are OK to leave out)

Yeah two of the ones that dont screw in have risers in them.. The screws i screwed in were too big and when i pulled them out the riser was stuck on the screw... Its no big deal, theres just a little gap there now..

I did the same thing beleive it or not, when fitting mine.
Luckily for me, the right screws still screwed in tight, with a little push.
Make sure the board is touching the riser, and then try to do it again.
