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?
