Unscrewed motherboard holes.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Only the three of them are empty. The rest is all screwed.

Will that damage my motherboard? (or can that cause my mobo to break?)

Nope nope. My case is Antec 1200 V3. The motherboard perfectly fits in my case. The problem is that I lost some of the screw holders so I can't fill these holes on my mobo.

I've ran many motherboards on cardboard boxes before. No grounding issues whatsoever. Just be careful when plugging things into that side like the 24pin as it will cause some flex of the pcb. Be gentle and supportive if you can. Shouldn't run into any issues otherwise.

Heck I just looked in my case. those three screws are missing from my R4E and it's ticking along just fine.

yeah iv booted mobos on some pretty ghetto test benches without issues, and im sure you could leave it running without the screws.....i just see it as an extra risk(one that im definitely not going to take.)
but im sure a set of standoffs are stupid cheap....i bet you could even pull some old ones out of another PC if you wanted....
