I have been building computers for many years now but thought i would check on a forum before trying something.
I have just got a new case and the mounting screw holes are very strange. Some holes are as should be, others are raised ! Hard to explain but what i mean is some screw holes are normal like every other case i have seen in my entire life, some of them the metal is pourposly mounted so some holes are higer then others !
This causes a problem as when the motherboard mounting screws are in place the ports (keyboard USB etc) dont match the same height as the back panel. If the holes were not risen there would not be a problem.
The only way i can see to solve this is to put washers between the surface of the case and the surface of the motherboard then screw into the case. The washers would stop the mobo touching the case.
What do you guys think ?
I have just rethought my idea and dont know if it will work anymore,
Ill attache some pics
