But aside from that, I'm sort of in the same boat as you. I used to have the company Puget put together all my PCs (they were amazing and did great work, but it wasn't worth an extra $2.5k). Thus I'm here with you and the other newbs, after 4-5 yrs, to learn how to overclock my CPU and GPU. Sort of exciting. If you have Amazon Prime (which I DO NOT suddenly Have a request for you lads as to which screw I ought use to bind my MB to my case. PLEASE IGNORE THE POST COUNT THAT SAYS I HAVE 8 OR 9 POSTS OR SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT, IN ACTUALLY I HAVE NEAR TO 1K, I LOT THEM ALL WHEN I LOST MY USERNAME. My manual ( for the ASUS WS x299 Pro) does not tell me, and (thank you, amazon) last week they locked me out of the account over 32.44 cents. i know I don't owe it, but offered to pay it anyway: NO. So not only can I not buy from them, which is in itself no great tragedy, but my audible books (which I very stupidly did not DL) and also all the different computer books of various types I'd have access to for free with Prime, all gone know. Or they are still there, but I cannot get them.

Thus I am screwed.


Out of all that text I think there’s a question asking what screw to mount the MB. Those screws should of come with the case, your MB won’t be helpful. Generally Motherboards and other circuit boards often use a #6-32 UNC standoff. So you should be able to replace those screws easily.
