    Question Pre-installed standoffs

    I'm confused about the standoffs in the Corsair 200r case. There is a little nobby one in the middle that you can't remove. It looks like a standoff but isn't :/ will it damage my MOBO or is it just to hold it up? I'm confused. I may try to cut it outif I can.

    I have pre-installed standoffs in my case and haven't experienced a problem even with installing it a couple times(RMA's and cooler). The one in the center fits into a whole on my mobo. It's a snug fit but didn't ruin anything.

    Ok. I've just read about standoffs ruining MOBOs if they touch the back in the wrong place

    pre installed standoffs are the common mounting points, the one with just a bump on is generally just a centre support.

    Ok, I'm only really concerned about that center one. I can take out the other ones just not the middle nubby one.

    put the standoffs in for your type of motherboard, then place it in the case that one will line up with the board it's to assist in placement rather than randomly fumbling around to get a screw in without the board slipping, they are in all cases.
