    Sorta silly question...mobo standoffs

    Do I need specific standoffs for my epia 800? I was looking for some online and digikey has about a million.

    well, there is one consideration: If you're using metal standoffs, make sure they're not bigger than the allotted area on the MB, to prevent shorts.
