Default looking for some motherboard stand offs

Hey guys alright so I'm throwing together a little NAS/folding rig and using a super old modded case....the only thing I forgot is....you guessed it...motherboard stand offs

I need 1 regular brass motherboard stand off.

and I don't know really what they are... but 3 of those silver spring things that can get the motherboard screwed into...


if someone has these in the montreal area or knows of somewhere I can get them that would be great

let me know...because know I got a PC ready to be build and can't really get started lol

Phone your local shop, see if they will give you a couple. They've usually got a few hundred extra from all their builds.

Those things usually come with your case in a bag - If I'm not mistaken, there are different kinds, depending on the case you are using - I've used different cases throughout the years and found that the ones from other cases might not fit well on my newer case so be careful.

Try Microbytes, ask the service department, bring your case and they might be able to find you some. You can also order those online as well.

If you call micro, make sure you ask for service - don't ask a regular sales guy, they might not know what a standof is LOL

I have few brass standoffs (used and not very shiny). How many do you need? I am in GTA, so PM me your address, I will send you with regular mail.

I too had some spare ones, but used them on my other systems.

Let me know if Microbytes has some - I do recall another store carying them, I'm not sure if it was Addison or Maddison, they have all kinds of little gadgets, and I recall seeing somewhere those standoffs - I'll look around see if I can find something.
