motherboard and case problem

By Snuffy09 ·
I have a computer case that has holes for spacers/mobo screws but they are projected upward (all the holes for mounting a ATX mobo are bubbled outward). if i use spacers the motherboard will sit too (x2) high up.
if i dont the motherboard will make contact with the metal of the case. what should i do? should i just put those little red rings (what are they called?) on the screw holes under the motherboard?

Use the little red rings

by NickNielsen In reply to motherboard and case prob ...

They are called insulators and their purpose is to isolate the bottom of the mainboard from the case.

thanks alot!
i think its a stupid design why not just make it flat and include spacers? anything to save a penny i guess.

Thank you!

Insulators or spacers

by mjd420nova In reply to motherboard and case prob ...

I seen this on a few custom built units. I've had to use cut down nylon spacers to acheive the proper height so the plugin cards sit in the slots properly on the board edge and the holes in the back of the case.
