Motherboard standoff scrapings

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
How dangerous is it to have little scrapings from the motherboard standoffs floating around in your case? I didn't use completely flat pliers to tighten the standoffs so I may have scraped little pieces of metal from the standoffs. In hindsight it probably wasn't the smartest thing to use these pliers but whatever . I vacuumed most of the case (without taking out the power supply), but I was just wondering if there's any chance of the motherboard short circuiting if any of these scrapings land on the right spot. Should I be concerned?

I mean, obviously... I'm just saying since they're just loose inside the case they could get moved by air or by me moving the case and land on a component.
