I've just taken delivery of a new case and motherboard from click here. Everything seems to be included for me to build my own PC except the screws which fasten the motherboard. The brass risers are there, but not the screws. Are there any particular sort of screws which I should seek for this purpose, or will general purpose cross head parallel screws do the job?
they are not..mores the pity..I've come across 5 different types and thats ATX cases.including a spring clip type(6)you just push in,with that type you test everything before fitting the board in the case..funny enough last year I bought 2 cases and inside was a large bag of assorted mobo fittings..very handy
There are 12 differant types of screws used for motherboards,depending on the CASE Who ever supplied the tower/case should provide the correct screws,yes I have know MB's to work lose if not fitted right. Get in contact with the supplier is the safest bet.
Any local shop that assembles systems will have a bucketload of 'em. There are always surplus ones with all the cases i get - I've got zillions. Talk nicely to a local supplier (and take in a stand-off to get the size right) - and I'm sure they'll give you a handful.
