Just screw directly into the standoffs through the holes in the mobo.

Get the answer caamsa December 28, 2007 11:08:58 PM So the answer is....it does not matter. n3zyd December 28, 2007 11:10:17 PM Yes and no, the washers spread the torque from the screws over a greater surface area, Imagine how sick you would feel as you tighten the screw and hear your mb crack. Can you live with out them, sure just be careful g-paw December 29, 2007 12:19:56 AM Make sure you have the exact number of standoffs required by the mobo, no more, no less.
