Building a computer, only 3 standoffs?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello, im helping a friend build a new atx build in the thermaltake urban s71 case and it only comes with 3 standoffs while theres 6 on atx motherboards? I checked the documentation and its not a mistake, it says it comes with 3 so what am i supposed to do? Thanks.

You NEED to have more than 3. and for the love of god do not install the motherboard without them.
Have you tried salvaging any from some old/dead/crappy un used pcs that you may have?

This is my friends first build so not really anything we could use to salvage some more from. I just cant believe thermaltake is that idiotic to only include 3 of something so important.

And i know not to install it with only 3, just have no idea what to do.

Edit: Fixed a typo

Amazon maybe? Standoffs are not really a standard thing to find at a hardware store.
Any PC Shops nearby? Any good shop would have a ton of these laying around that you could get.

Unrelated tip - Thermaltake is company for noobish peeps. They make a lot of gaudy products and I have never been impressed with their products. (Except some PSUs)
