Is there a screwless fixing for motherboards?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi im looking to mod a few cases, just wondering if there is any way i can custom fit a motherboard using say push pins to attach to the case? If so any where in UK could stock perhaps?

i would reccomend drilling out some holes in the right place for your mobo with a dremmel. If you don't have a dremmel, BUY ONE! all modders have a dremmel!

Then, take the mobo nuts that are preinstalled in the case and move them to your custom holes

Install as normal and you're good to go

Easy as pie, just time consuming

i do have a dremel tool sure, just wondering if the plates already threaded to accomodate the fixing or will it thread in itself after drilling?

You could also try this:

See if your local hardware store has some little bases that have screw holes in them the size of a motherboard standoff (aka bring a mobo standoff with you and try screwing it in). Then, just use really strong adhesive that won't break down beneath like a 80-90C temperature to stick them on the case. Some sort of super glue epoxy could probably do the trick. Also, the bases would raise the mobo a little higher up and you would have to put some small wires from the standoffs (screwed into the bases) to the case with electrical tape if the bases aren't metal.

There are small push pins used in the automotive field, but I doubt you want to go there since there a pain to remove!
