Do I need washers?

Right now, I have only my brass standoffs and screws. Should I add the washers on before I power up?

  1. bump.
  2. WTF are you talking about?
  3. A case comes with brass standoffs, screws, and washers for mounting your mobo. I was wondering if I should use the washers too.
  4. Ahhh.....

    Wouldn't hurt.
    Never worried mutch about them on my system, though.

    If it comes with them, use them.
    Just make shure they arn't oversized + touching anything they shoulden't.
  5. Don't use them; they are not needed and may even cause a ground fault if they touch anything pass the solder around the hole.
  6. The only washers I would use would be either a felt or plastic type. Those types can inhibit noise or vibration without the possibility of causing any shorts.
