Default 550d, which screws do I use to mount the motherboard?


I have an Obsidian 550d case and I'm trying to mount a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 TH motherboard in it. Just to be on the safe side, which screws do I use to mount the motherboard inside the case? I think it's the middle one, but I want to be sure.

Also, am I correct in noticing that there is no PC speaker for the case? Do I need one? I haven't built a computer in over 10 years so I'm unsure if PC speakers are 'out of style' now, or they just don't come with this particular model of case.

The screw in the middle (in the picture). Most new motherboard come with a build in sound card. When you plug in your PC speaker system, it will work just like the built in PC speaker.

For the speaker you might want to use something like this here. :)

You might get it in an electronic store.

*Edit: Now the link should work. ;)
