I've already tried the test build as shown in the Newegg Tutorial video and it managed to work (I didn't think I had the speaker part for the "post-beep" or whatever, but some digging after trying to get the case situated lead me to find them--). Now my question is on how to assemble everything into the case. I've got the power supply already screwed into place at the bottom; the beautiful dust catcher there with it. Now as far as putting the motherboard in, I read that the stand-off screws are a must to prevent bending and having grounding/charge problems to the case itself. From what I've seen, there are 9 holes for them and I only have 3. Is it ok to proceed anyway with just 3, or should I take a trip to a hardware store to pick some up tomorrow?




(Take this as a suggestion to have a construction guide up, too. ;D)
Yes stand-offs help ground the motherboard. Usually the case has stand offs included along with the screws and stuff. I recommend getting more standoffs (around 6-8) just to be safe. Although I've been getting away with using just 6 standoffs for awhile now.
