im reaserching to try and build my own pc, im very nervous, especially since im using my hard earned money, and looking to many threads i always see people mentioning to be sure to check about standoffs, what is it? how do i check it?
It should help explain things on how to build a PC. Basically, a standoff is a special type of washer that lifts the motherboard off of the case and helps ground the MOBO to the case. Without them, the MOBO will shortout when you power up the PC.
