Youll get an interesting boot if you run without the standoffs... lol


everyone practically said it already.

before mounting the motherboard make sure you mount the backplate for the h60. then mount the board into case.
then install ram
install h60 heatsink.
wire everything neatly in the case.
plug in stuff and your good to go...

Just curious, if you forget the standoffs, does it kill the board?

I'm not stupid enough to forget them, just curious.

It causes your board to shake faster the Chunk does on "The Goonies" when he does the truffle shuffle.....ok...maybe not THAT fast
