Closed Is it safe if one motherboard hole isn't mounted on a standoff? Tags: New Build Cases Computer Motherboards Systems Last response: December 2, 2011 10:25 AM in Systems Share TheRedStorm November 21, 2011 4:19:53 AM I'm currently doing my first computer build, but I have run into a strange problem. the case doesn't have a hole to put a standoff in where one of the motherboard mounting holes are. That would mean all but one hole would be screwed in. Will the computer still work if its like that? My motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z68AP-D3 My case: Thermaltake Element G Thanks More about : safe motherboard hole mounted standoff Best solution abekl a c 125 V Motherboard November 21, 2011 4:53:00 AM One hole missing a standoff generally isn't a problem, and shouldn't affect the operation of the computer at all. TheRedStorm November 21, 2011 4:53:57 AM hmm... I'm starting to wonder if my motherboard is even compatible with the case... The case says "Motherboard compatibility: Mini ATX and Full ATX" My motherboard says it's "ATX Form Factor - 30.5 cm x 21.5 cm" Related resources Missing 1 standoff hole - still safe ? - Forum What to do with a mounting hole which isn't ? - Forum Extreme 4 Standoff/Mount Question - Forum One screw won't go in to the motherboard standoff - Forum More motherboard mounting holes than motherboard standoffs - Forum Can't find your answer ?
