    Default Screwed in the wrong sized screw into motherboard.

    So earlier today I was building a rig for a friend and while installing the motherboard I accidentally used what appears to be a larger screw than the standard ones that were supposed to go on the mobo.

    By the time I realized this it was too late and now its stuck in an awkward position. Now, other screws r tightened securely in place except for this one screw. I can't get it out simply by unscrewing and I believe it is pushing against the back and slightly tilting the mobo over a bit which makes me uncomfortable.

    Asking for advice on removal cuz I dont wanna damage the mobo in the process.

    Any ideas?
