System tools requireD?

I know you need a screwdriver, what size does it have to be though ( 1 or 2)
Also I tried googling this but I couldn't find exactly what tool I need to put/remove standoffs for the motherboard.

    It really depends, I used 1 for motherboard screws, and 2 for case fans.

    As for the standoffs, most cases either have them pre screwed, such as my 300r, or they some with an adapter that goes over the standoff and you simply use a screwdriver.

    Ah I see, I got a 200r (corsair) so do you think it comes with it. So do you recommend 1 for internal components? Also do you have any specific screwdrivers from amazon you recommend (like do they have to be long and thin?)

  4. They might be inserted already.
    As for the sizes, I just used the smaller one because I gave it a magnetic tip simply to hold screws (Which also wont damage components)
    I have these, http://www.lowes.com/pd_525822-930-324GC20N_0__?productId=50158893&cm_mmc=SCE_PLA-_-Tools-_-ScrewdriversScrewdriverSets-_-50158893&CAWELAID=320011480002325596&kpid=50158893&CAGPSPN=pla+
    But really any will work, whatever fits your budget and needs.

    Yea 200R has built in ones which you have to remove to fit your board. Holzman says to use a 5 mm socket but im not really sure to which tool he's referring to.t
