Motherboard/Case compatability

Hello everyone.

I recently put in my order for the parts to a new computer and they arrived this morning. I have watched a number of videos and decided to go for it. I'm at the part of installing my motherboard into the case, and I noticed that there are two unused holes in the motherboard (and subsequently there are 2 standoffs on the case not being used).

The other 6 holes/standoffs line up perfectly, so I am wondering if leaving those two out are a big deal.

I have a HAF 912 and a h61m u3s3. The two unused holes/standoffs are on the far right corners (top and bottom). The closest used holes are about 2 inches away from the unused one which are on the very edge of the board.

Thanks

Also, the 'H' standoff did not line up to a hole, so i removed it.

You can't stretch the motherboard to use standoffs required by larger motherboards. Just ignore them or remove them if you don't like seeing unused standoffs.

So not using those 2 holes int the motherboard won't matter much with stability?

You should normally use 2 nylon standoffs for the end of a mATX motherboard, but it isn't an absolute must. http://www.xsfans.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&...
