Hello,
Trying to install my motherboard to the case, but the included 'standoff screws' aren't long enough to secure the mobo. Any help is appreciated.

setup:
NZXT Phantom 410 case
Asus P8Z77 motherboard
a b V Motherboard

here's what a standoff screw looks like... http://images.search.yahoo.com/images/view;_ylt=A0PDoKi82VRQYW8AHuiJzbkF;_ylu=X3oDMTBlMTQ4cGxyBHNlYwNzcgRzbGsDaW1n?back=http%3A%2F%2Fimages.search.yahoo.com%2Fsearch%2Fimages%3Fp%3Dstandoff%2Bscrew%26ei%3DUTF-8%26fr%3Dyfp-t-701%26tab%3Dorganic%26ri%3D15&w=300&h=300&imgurl=ecx.images-amazon.com%2Fimages%2FI%2F31ue0yldOrL._SL500_AA300_.jpg&rurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FMetal-Screw-Standoff-Cables-Computer%2...

thta part goes into the metal chassis

then your motherboard goes in the chassis and gets screwed to those standoffs with regular screws

all motherboards are relatively the same thickness, so you should have no problems

Ok, thanks. Been awhile since I put together a system and forgot that these standoff screws don't actually screw into the mobo itself. Thanks again.
