STAND-OFFS & SCREWS

Maximum PC - - BASICS BUILD GUIDE -

DE­PEND­ING ON YOUR CHAS­SIS, you might need to in­stall the stand-offs your­self. These are tiny screws with a thread on the top that give your mother­board a raised plat­form to stand on. In our case, Cooler Mas­ter in­cludes these in­side the screw bag, with a neat Phillips head stand-off screw in­staller. Look at the chas­sis, and note the “M” on the pre-drilled threads in the case. This is where you need to in­stall the stand-offs for your microATX mother­board. Check where the stand-offs are go­ing against the screw holes on your mother­board. You may find some aren’t on the mother­board, or the mother­board doesn’t cover all the stand-offs—this is fine. Once you’ve got the stand-offs in, place the mother­board on top of them, wedge it up against the rear I/O plate, and screw it into place.
