Mounting Intel WiFi chip in NUC board.

Hi, I have a NUC8v7PN board and I wanted to mount Intel wireless chip on the board. I have mounted it, but the chip is actually in a diagonal position, you can see it in the image attached below. The board and the chip are working fine, but since it is in that position, I cannot screw it fully, and also you can see the screw in the image.a.jpg

My question is, Is it the right method or I can push it further, I am also afraid that the chip might get damaged.

Please give suggestions, Thanks in advance.

Hi @LakshmananB 

 Looks to me that you mounted your WiFi card on the Standoff (stud spacer)  for SSD drive. You should unscrew this Standoff (you may use a flat plier tool) and only than insert the Wifi adapter into its connector. Next, fasten the Wifi Adapter with the Standoff and only than insert the SSD and fasten it to the standoff with the fasting screw.
