My friend is building a computer, I told her about these things that should be made of plastic or rubber, to stop the motherboard from shorting out when you turn it on. She can't find anything made of plastic or rubber, the instructions say nothing about this, and her friend says he never used any such thing when building a computer.
I am on web cam with them, but they are chatting away in Norwegian, so I can't talk to this guy. I don't even know what these things are called.
Is it possible that a Sabortooth z77 doesn't need spacers or standoff's?
I am trying to warn them that something must separate the motherboard from the metal of the case. Am I wrong about this?
It's ATX mobo and ATX case.
If I am right, could anyone show me what these spacers or standoffs look like?
