Default Standoffs and micro ATX

Hi,

I just bought a corsair carbide spec 05 and I was wondering if you need to install the standoff given with the case if i was installing a micro ATX board. There seems to already be one pre-installed but i dont know.

Edit: there is only one standoff screw that comes with the case

Hey Zwizii,

The Spec 05 should have came with pre-installed stand offs. If they're missing from the case you can either set up an exchange or check with our support team for assistance.

So i shouldn't need to worry about installing the standoff screw because of the one that comes preinstalled right?

That sounds correct, based on them being pre-installed. I'm assuming you can see the actually pre-installed standoffs on the motherboard tray area - so, they should line up to the holes on your motherboard.

In my Corsair 280x I ended up removing some of the pre-installed standoffs because I had an ITX board and didn't need them all. Though it would have been fine to leave them.

Good luck with your build.
