Hi

Are motherboard standoffs standard in size ?

I mean would any standoffs fit any PC case and any motherboard or is there a specific length, diameter or thread specific to each PC case or specific for each motherboard ?

If standard, what are these sizes (length, diameter, thread) as I'd like to buy a few spares to keep on hand (will be attempting my first build soon).

Thank you

From experience over many years, they are all standard threads and size, but not length, that varies by case manufacturer.

Generally a computer case will come with 9 standoffs to meet ATX standards, unless the case is smaller. The majority of ATX motherboards will use 6, smaller boards even less. More expensive 'wider' ATX boards will use all 9, which is nice when they are right next to the main I/O for the disk drives.

There are many cases available that use zero or only some standoffs and use threaded and stamped raised sheet metal for the stand offs.
