Prep the board is a good place to start

First thing is to set up the board, get your mobo, and put in your CPU and RAM + Heatsink

thats a good starting place

Lol, I added him to msn a few days ago. Been helping him every step of the way since. I just now got online and he's been asking tons of questions so hopefully I can help walk him through it.

I have this case Newegg.com - XCLIO A380BK Fully Black High Gloss Finish SECC 1.0mm thickness ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

The case won't fit over it because of the fan
And because of the Cpu cooler Newegg.com - XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Do I have to have these screws?

Or can I take them out to lower my motherboard? Or do they NEED to be there?

I was wondering if I could just screw the mobo into the tower directly, without those screws in the way?

Any other suggestions?

It says all that info in the manual.

And what do you mean the case won't fit over it?
