Default Problem With a Corsair 400R and HX850 PSU

When I was installing a HX850 into my 400R, I noticed that the screw holes weren't lined properly. They're both Corsair products, so I'd assume that they'd be compatible. The screw holes are a little higher than they should be, so I'm assuming the problem is the rubber standoffs under the PSU are raising it a little higher than it should be. Im not sure if it's poor designing or a defective case, but now I probably have to shave off some rubber to make the holes line up correctly. I'm just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and knows a simple solution or if I really have to shave off some rubber.

Have you tried mounting the PSU with the fan facing down/up?

I had the same problem I just had to move the screws to different holes. I figured they would of worked out since its the same company who makes both but it don't seem they test them out.
