Uh what? You don't need to use standoffs if the motherboard aligns correctly with the IO panel on the back of the case. It should come with screws though..

If you have none because the case came with none. and don't have any extras, goto a computer related store and ask for a variety of case screws, or just the ones you need.

Make sure you install those motherboard pegs as if you don't it will short the systemboard and will cause you problems!

Not necessarly true, I have had two different cases that did not require standoffs. AND never had "Shorting" problems. However, 95% + of the cases that do exsist require them, so most, but not all.
