Hello again. Ive been on and off the forums trying to figure things out with the new pc I built. So far so good until a mobo screw fell off today. I tried tightening it but it would just keep going.. and going. and never tighten. The other screws were fine. I thought it was the standoff or perhaps the screw so I replaced both. No luck. I took the troublesome screw and standoff out (probably a bad idea) and tighten the rest. Seemed fine for a few minutes. Until two more wouldn't tighten.
case - antec 300
mobo - msi 785g e65
also is there a way for me to delete threads? Still kind of new to this.
So does the standoff keep spinning when you try to thread it into the case as well? If it (the case) is stripped, I suppose you could just place the standoff in place and loctite it to the case (that way it still can be removed). Also double check they (screws/standoffs) are the correct size/pitch/etc.
What they mean about the teeth is when you look at the underside of the head of the screw it has ridges. I had to pick up and look at some of the screws I have just sitting on my desk to figure out what was meant.
