Default First build - question about screwing in motherboard

Hey guys. So I'm working on my first build, and I have a question about screwing in my motherboard to the computer case. There are 6 slots on the motherboard that you can screw into, 5 of which line up with openings on my case. The case came with plenty of screws, but only 4 stand off screws. Which holes in the case do I put those standoff screws into? All 5 of those holes on the case say ATX / mATX, but some of them look different.




One is just a hole, 2 are raised screw looking objects (I put a standoff screw in the left one), and then the top 2 are 2 raised platform nubs. Not sure what the technical terms are for these.

Default Re: First build - question about screwing in motherboard

The raised screw-looking objects are built-in standoffs; I imagine this is why there were only a few discrete standoff screws that came with it; they're the optional ones.

Your links don't work btw, but I'm going to assume you have an ATX motherboard. It looks like your case has written on it the locations that you need to be using for ATX motherboards. Just add standoff screws on the locations that have ATX written next to them but also do not have the built-in standoffs.
