Installing new motherboard

  reddwarfcrew 19:19 27 Aug 2004

I'm about to build a new pc, but have a question about installing the mobo in the case.

The mobo is a Asus A7V8X-X SKT A KT400 8x AGP DDR Sound lAN USB 2.0 Retail Box
and the case is JNC 5JA 60 Case with 400W PSU in Blue

Can I just srew the mobo in, or do I need to sit it on some risers so that it isn't actually touching the case? Neither the case nor mobo came with anything other than screws.

I would expect it to be mounted on risers, otherwise the underside of the board would be shorted on the case. Are the risers already built onto the board?

Try your local computer shop for a pack of risers/screws.

without sounding thick, how tall are these risers and what would it look like on the back of the mobo.

I assume the brass stand offs is all I need.

yes thats all you need plus the screws of course

I have the same board. Pop the motherboard in first and note the corresponding holes that match the board. Take the board out and screw the brass risers in. Slip the board back in and insert the retaining screws. then just connect ever thing up.

The board should come with a spare back plate, slip the old one out of the case and insert the new one. It is made for the ports on the back of the motherboard.
