Can't find answer on google. Do stnadoffs come with mobo or case?

It has been stressed enough to me to know that standoffs are vitally important to a working computer. However, I can't find any info if they actually come with the case or mobo or is it something I have to buy separately.

I'd like to know ASAP so i can get them ordered on Amazon prime by this weekend! Thanks in advance.

They come with the case. Some cases have them pre-installed.

They come with the case, along with all the screws to mount the hard drives, power supply, graphic card, etc.

Can you imagine how depressin that would be? Getting ALL the parts in and laying everythin out and not being able to assemble them because of some cheap screws and all local stores being closed on sunday? haha.

One thing I'm kind of bothered with:


Whenever I first assembled my rig last week, the case had preinstalled standoffs. There were 8 standoffs (Three on top, two in the middle, three on the bottom), and the mobo had 9 standoff holes. I was in a hurry to get it done, and didn't bother to install the standoff for the last hole.

Now that everything's put together, I'm kind of worried about that. Should I go back and install the standoff?

You could have built it without the motherboard in the case as long as you secured the graphics card somehow and put the HDD in the case to secure it

Not really a big deal, it's worse if you have a standoff but no hole

When this happen, all I did was stick a piece of Styrofoam under the space where the missing standoff would go. Just to have peace of mind that the motherboard would not touch the case and cause a short circuit.
