Default HELP!!Mounting motherboard in case??

sponsored links

 
HI need help having a go at building my 1st pc When i come to put the mobo in the case the holes line up i have put some brass brass standoffs , but these will only fit in 2 of the holes as if i put them in the raised nipple type holes on the case the mobo sits to high so do i need to just screw the mobo down into the brass standoffs (2 screws only) or do i need to screw it down all round (but then about 6 screws will be directly on the case) Nedd your help as i dont want to fry my mobo!PLEASE

See to it that motherboard is Fixed and not moving. Use the two standoffs in diagonal to each other. Though, it's always better to fix the board with as many screws as possible.

Yes you need to use standoffs. But you do not need standoffs for every screw hole in your mother board.
