Standoffs for the Asus M4A77TD

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Ive just installed my CPU, heatsink and RAM, and was ready to put it into my case, then I realized that no standoffs or screws came with the mobo? How exactly am I supposed to mount it?

Hi.

Standoffs generally come with the case.

Have you checked the contents of the case box?

This. If your case didnt come with any (I have never seen one that didnt) you will need to go out and buy some. NEVER mount a motherboard into a case without standoffs unless you enjoy watching them fry.

WOW. Am I ever an idiot. I sold my old mobo and I accidentally gave him the standoffs. Guess I have an email to send lol.

Another question. I installed a hyper 212+ with my AM3 cpu. The blackplate looks like it will be touching the bottom of the case. Is that alright?

isnt that what the standoffs are for?? To seperate the mobo and case?

Yes, but the backplate of the hyper 212 extends a bit from the mobo, and im concerned that it may still be touching, even after the standoffs are applied. If it is touching, is that a problem?

Shouldn't be a problem if the backplate is insulated from the motherboard. There should be a thin insulating pad on the top side of the backplate (side that touches the motherboard).
At long last...
