^+1. Usually it cost more to make a custom bracket than buying it.

good point esp w time needed. I just wonder - is there a simple solution like one trip to hardware store for 4 long screws, 4 nylon washers, and some springs? ...just replace the push pins with long screw with a spring for tension held in place by the head and a non-conductive nylon washer or ? inder the mobo. Maybe just $2 of parts?

^You could do that, but I don't recommend doing so with out having some kind of a back plate.

Most likely those parts from the hardware store will cost ~$5, I would just spend the $9, get the correct parts and not risk cracking your mobo
