This is my first post. I’m new to Roon and have decided to build a ROCK from a NUC7i7DNHE in an Akasa Plato X7D case to make a low power silent ROCK.
I’ve disassembled the NUC and have come to the part where the NUC board should be mounted in the Plato X7D case. But it doesn’t seem to fit.
On the NUC board there’s some kind of a standoff - a small threaded fastener - that seems to be in the way so the NUC board cannot lay flush in the case and the CPU therefore cannot touch the alu cooling plate.
I’m stuck here and don’t know how to move on from here. I hope someone in here would kindly help me. Any help is much appreciated.
I have taken two photos of the parts that seem to be conflicting.
