I'm re-building my gaming rig and its a fairly long process but I'm about to test fit most of the components and just moved my motherboard standoffs around and realized I'm missing 1.

I'm a perfectionist, but I also live in a rather large house, and the hassle of going to the attic to find something as small as a motherboard standoff is not really enticing.

Question A:

Would it matter that I miss 1 standoff?
The board is horizontal in my case, so all pressure is from the top and down.
Its the one there is a ring around I'm missing.



Question B:

If I was to buy a few new stand offs on eBay, what size do I need?
It looks like its a M2 thread but I'm really not sure, the case itself is a Lian Li PC-V33.

Option C:

I just pull my self together and go to the tomorrow attic and look in a ton of boxes for something almost the size of a needle (in a haystack)....

If you miss one isn't gonna cause any issue. Lian Li uses stand off with metric tread M3x0.5 not the normal 6-32 that most cases uses

I got little confused because I have a brass one regular M3, but it dont fit so measured one and it looks like its M2 or M2.5.
I guess you are right it dont matter, thanks

Are you sure that is a M3 ?. I Just take one from my lian li and measured it, is the same size of a regular M3 screw.

I'm fairly sure, I'm thinking of getting a digital caliper because I'm curious. It just started snowing again here so maybe another day
