Known problematic cases

Fractal Design Define XL R2 is missing standoff holes for the top-left and top-middle positions. Some alternative standoff in at least the top-middle position may be required to prevent too much bending of the motherboard while inserting RAM.

Power Supplies

When planning to run with both CPU sockets populated keep in mind that the power-supply should support also 2 8-pin EPS connectors.
