No, I don't think they are stripped since they are smaller than the "normal". It looks like the holes are factory-made.

Edit: oh dw i just read the rest of your posts... stripped threads?
Edit2: Have you thought about asking a shop to weld them on or something?
Edit3: I have compared the standoffs I have with the pics you posted, they dont match any of them. The thread looks very similar to an optical drive bay screw.
Damn. Thanks for the effort though. They said the same thing at the retailers I visited. Complete w t f.

Yes, they are smaller. Could you explain, I am not quite understanding what you mean by "tap"?

M3? Is that the name of the thread?
*does ebay search for M3 standoff*
This looks very much like what it should, I believe.
So...why the frakk does my motherboard tray have M3 holes?!
Could somebody measure the length of the standoffs you have? (the hexagonal part)
Is it 10mm? Do you guys also have tray-edges that curve toward the motherboard-side?
EDIT: Sorry about the separate posts. Lesson learned, just so excited to finally maybe find a solution to this mess.
EDIT2: Wow, a search here and I found this:
So...I am not alone in the universe then? What is the "standard" thread name then?Edited by Inq - 1/19/11 at 3:13am
