MOBO Standoffs

Hey Everyone,

I recently purchased an Asus M5A97 R2.0 board from Newegg as an open box deal since I'm frugal as can be when it comes to buying stuff for myself. I took the risk of it may or may not having all the parts and of course I received the board only. The main thing I care about are the board standoffs. I searched for the standoffs by the boards model # online and couldn't find them but came across these on Amazon; http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00213KL5I/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1395113512&sr=8-1&pi=SY200_QL40. Would these work for my board if I'm using a Cool Master Elite 431 Plus tower?

Should work, although you might also need screws to attach your mobo to those standoffs

Motherboards don't come with stand offs. They should have been included with the case.

You're right man. I checked the manual for my case and there were supposed to be some standoffs included along with cable ties and a mobo speaker. I called Amazon and they're overnighting another case to me. Thanks for the reply!

Every screw a average builder needs should come in a box in your case.
