Standoffs on Z87 plus motherboard?

#1nehukogPosted 9/15/2013 6:19:53 PM
I am building my PC and my friend just told me not to forget the standoffs for the screws for screwing the motherboard to the case, but my Z87 plus didn't come with any screws or standoffs (I'm using some spare small screws from my last build about 4 years ago) It looks like the screw holes on the mobo have little metal bumps around them, are those subsittuing for standoffs now? Hard to think they would ship these without standoffs

Only the case ships with standoffs.

Standoffs come with the case.

Some cases have standoffs built into them while others come with brass spacers.
Your old build should have some form of standoffs you can reuse.

hmm, my case didn't come with any either. I got a Carbide 500R. Is it possible that case doesn't need them or has them built in somehow?

The 500r should have 6 installed on the mobo tray and the rest in a ziplock bag if I'm not mistaken by the look of the pictures of the case and review videos.

Does your case not have pre-installed pegs on the motherboard tray?

There should be a box of accessories in the hard drive tray. Thats how mine came. Also, the bumps are to be used without stand offs.

There are what looks to be black little pegs in the motherboard screw spots, but the manual I got said it should come with installation kit. I'll take a pic real quick and upload it...

go to a locally owned computer shop in your area, most times they'll just give you some standoffs. Also a good way to get fan splitter cables free.
