Default Mobo mounting

I just bought the gigabyte x58 and i was just wondering if i should put washers on both sides of the mounting holes to be safe? Even though the holes are metallized.. >.<

My System Specs


The Brass Standoffs should be fine without washers. I have always put them on the Screw side however.
This is just the way I do, other people might have a better idea, but its never given me any problems.

I would rather believe and find god doesn't exist than to not believe and find that he does.
