Default Motherboard washers?

Okay, so I bought a new computer case and a new motherboard. Both are very expensive. But they didn't come with washers! Do I need those rubber washers to put between the motherboard and the case? I know I've used them before. I don't want to mess crap up.

You dont need washers but you may need Stand-offs.

The case should come with Stand-offs or the mounting holes should be mounded.

is it just your motherboard or all the motherboards of that model? if its just yours, return it because there might be other things wrong with it.

Motherboards never comes with standoffs. Cases does. If it doesn't come with stand-offs (Not the washers), then either look for some in your local shop...they should have a ton.

OR, if you have a case, where the holes have been bumped...something like this:

Then, there's no need of standoffs, as it will do the job.
