Motherboard Standoffs ?
Ok so i ordered a new Apevia case and evga motherboard. This being my first build i was quite excited. I had previously read all the info on installing and had everything i needed ready, until i opened my case's packaging.
So the case was suppose to come with everything needed to install a new mobo, screws and standoffs. Apevia only sent out 7 standoffs for me though. Evga 680i requires 10.
Before i go to the good ol' parts store i just wanted to know about quality of standoffs. Are they all generic or are some made cheap ? Are some brass and some gold ? What is going to protect my motherboard from a short circuit the best ?
Also i have a question on fans. I have 4 fan ports, one rear, one top, and 2 in the bottom of the front. The rear holds a 80-120 mm fan so i am going with a 120 there. The top and front support 80 mm fans. There is also a vent on the side. My plan was to have the 120mm blowing inwards, the top fan blowing air out of the case ( seeing how heat rises it just makes sense to me ) and to have both the fan's in front blowing in on my hard drives. Does this make sense ? I am thinking enough air will be able to escape through the vents and the top outwards fan, but like i said this is my first build.
Any help, advise, or even criticism will be greatly appreciated.
