Need QUICK help with motherboard installation Corsair Carbide 300R

Hello Forum,

I am building my Pc at the moment, but I have run into a problem with the motherboard mount. I have a corsair carbide 300r case and a gigabyte h87 hd3 motherboard.There is ONE mounting screw preinstalled in the case and one included with the screws, but not listed on the part list. he motherboard did not come with any standoffs. Do I have to go buy standoffs now or can I remove the one preinstalled standoff and mount the mobo without standoffs, since the screw holes are elevated?

Thanks in advance!

  1. When you lay the board into the case and screw it down does everthing line up? Do your add in cards line up with the case when you put them in? Do the I/O ports line up?

    Thanks for the answer.
    Yes, everything lines up perfectly, I/O ports wont fit in any other position. I have found on 3 different websites that I do not need standoffs (but not one official corsair site :( )
  3. I am pretty sure you are fine, some new cases are now using the metal bubbles instead of standoffs like we were used to.
  4. I have 300r. Your board is ATX. No stand-off is needed.
