It usually causes solder to break, and you will end up with intermittent failures.

Precisely. Board assumes a bent shape due to the bit of stress in the one area, solder stretches, paths break.

you are talking about hiding wires UNDER the motherboard right?

all my wires go behind the mobo tray and into the back panel, so there not physically touching the mobo ever. and theres alot back there....

so would that cause stress on the board?

We're talking about between the mobo tray and the mobo. If they were too thick they would push up against the mobo. Yours is fine, that's how your case is designed to be used
