Putting together my new i5-2500K/P8P67 Deluxe System: Help! - Page 7

Yes, the standoffs. Couldn't think of the name.

Yes, I have those silver screws; they are in black. The smaller ones DO fit in the standoffs, though.

I can't call ASUS because they closed early today. The reason I am kind of in a rush is because I bought hard drives from Newegg before I bought the main PC parts. Should they be DOA, I only have until Thursday to report it. That's good because I thought it was Tuesday. I made the purchase on the 18th but they gave me the invoice on the 19th so you've got 30 days to let them know from the invoice date.

Hard drives have a high DOA rate nowadays so if I don't RMA them, I could lose $400. Thursday is far off, though.

I am typing like **** today, btw. Thank God for spell-checker.

THANKS. I forgot about that. Probably would have done one at a time.

Well, the screws I linked in the first image are the ones you need to use to screw the motherboard into the standoffs.

The black ones I have are them for sure! They've got the ridges underneath. They are the same length.

Don't make me nervous. LOL

Two of the screws are acting differently than the others.

One is letting the motherboard lift a little bit. I mean, it's stuck as hell...it's not going anywhere. But it's not bolted to the bottom like the rest.. The reason I'm not continuing is because it's getting tight like it's finished and it feels like I might be overdoing it.

Another one keeps twisting and it's making a odd sound. It's extremely tight, and the motherboard is not moving, but it wants to keep screwing in.

I'm 100% sure the standoffs are in, tight as hell. Should I keep screwing them in or leave them? The motherboard is stuck, I'm sure of it. What should I do?

Well, I would just restart and unscrew all of them and start over and see what happens. Hopefully, the two screws will come out when the others are losend.

Well, I undid them all, replaced those two with new screws and tried again. This time I focused on placing the board down for the first screw and it went down all the way. No mb movement. The second one that wanted to keep screwing...well, it did get tight but it doesn't feel like the others. My screwdriver keeps wanting to stop like it's done, yet it also feels like it wants to keep going, but not in a good way. There is no movement on the mb from it at all so I believe it's done. It might be the standoff, which I'm sure is in right and straight. Y'know you get those parts like that sometimes when you're putting together non-computer stuff, screws that don't want to stop. I feel like if I keep going I'm gonna hurt the motherboard. It's very tight already.

Anyway, I tried lifting the mb gently on it's edges and it's tight as hell. No movement at all.

You think I'm good to go on putting the plugs in?
