Woah!



The motherboard must be mounted on stand-offs otherwise the back of the motherboard will short out on the metal motherboard tray.

These are the stand-off's that you mount the motherboard on.

Don't turn it on until it's mounted correctly.

Thanks I've done this before on another computer I built. I only had about 20 mins to build this one before it was shipped to my brother. Thought about those but never really thought it was that important.

Thanks again for your help,
Stoked

No worries Stoked.

The computer needs these.
